Directions

  1. Chop one apple and thickly slice remaining two into wedges. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat until sizzling. Spread apples evenly in skillet and brown on one side. Flip apples over and drizzle with 1 tbsp (15 mL) of maple syrup. Reduce heat to medium and sauté until apples are browned but not scorched, about 2 min. Transfer to a plate and reserve.

  2. Stir cornstarch into apple juice, brandy (if using) and remaining maple syrup; pour into skillet, add cranberries. Increase heat to high. Boil mixture until thickened and glossy, about 5 min. Return apples and heat through, tossing to coat.

  3. Place each waffle on a serving plate. Top with apple mixture and whipped cream.
