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


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