Apples, maple syrup, and brandy were made for each other -- especially when they're warm and served over frozen yogurt.

This recipe from Flagg Hill Farm features the farm's signature apple brandy, Pomme de Vie, inspired by the French apple brandy, Calvados.


2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
4 to 6 medium apples, such as Jonagold, Northern Spy or Cortland
Juice of 1 lemon
4 tablespoons sugar, divided
1/3 cup pure maple syrup
3 tablespoons Pomme de Vie or Calvados (apple brandy)
3 cups vanilla frozen yogurt


  1. Preheat broiler. Grease a baking sheet or shallow baking pan with butter, and set aside.
  2. Peel, core, and cut apples into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Evenly sprinkle lemon juice and 2 tablespoons sugar over apples.
  3. Place apples in a single layer on pan and broil about 6 inches from the heat, until apples are golden, about 7 to 10 minutes. Remove pan from oven and sprinkle remaining 2 tablespoons sugar evenly over apples. Return to the oven and continue to broil until the edges just begin to darken or slightly char.
  4. Place maple syrup in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Add Calvados and cook 3 minutes, stirring frequently.  Spoon hot apples and sauce over frozen yogurt and serve immediately.
