1/3 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar; packed
1 teaspoon vanilla
Melt butter in frypan and add sugar. Stir till sugar is dissolved or softened and everything is well blended, then add vanilla.
Core unpeeled apples, cut them into quarters and add to hot sugar. Simmer uncovered over medium heat, basting often with the syrup for 15-20 minutes.
Note: Serve hot or cold, they are superb on ice cream.”
