A dish of sautéed apples splashed with Calvados is a quintessential dessert served at French farmhouses. Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream or Chantilly cream for a rustic after-dinner treat.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 7 minutes

Total Time: 12 minutes


  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/2 pounds cooking apples, peeled, cored, and cut lengthwise into 1/4-inch slices
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar (powdered sugar)
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon Calvados


Melt the butter in a large skillet set over medium heat. Add the apples and confectioners’ sugar to the pan and sauté them for 5 to 7 minutes, until they turn golden and tender. Sprinkle the Calvados over the apples and carefully ignite the alcohol with a long match. Stand back and allow the flames to go out. Serve the apples hot.

This sautéed apples recipe makes 4 servings.
