Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Makes: 4


  1. 3 Spartan or Northern Spy apples, peeled and cored
  2. 2 tbsp salted butter 30 mL
  3. 3 tbsp Compliments Organic 100% Pure Maple Syrup 45 mL
  4. 1/2 tsp cornstarch 2 mL
  5. 1 cup apple juice 250 mL
  6. 1/4 cup brandy (optional) or additional apple juice 60 mL
  7. 1/4 cup Compliments Dried and Sweetened Cranberries 60 mL
  8. 4 toasted Compliments Organic Homestyle Waffles
  9. 1/4 cup whipped cream, 35% (approx.)60 mL


  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.
