Glazed Apples Recipe
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar
- 2 lb Golden Delicious apples, peeled and each cut into 8 wedges
- Bring water and 1/2 cup sugar to a boil in a 3-quart saucepan, stirring until sugar is dissolved, then reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes. Add apples and simmer, stirring occasionally, until just tender, about 15 minutes. Transfer apples with a slotted spoon to a rack set over a baking pan, reserving poaching syrup, and drain apples 10 minutes.
- Preheat broiler.
- Arrange apple wedges in 1 layer in a flameproof shallow baking pan and sprinkle with remaining tablespoon sugar. Broil about 6 inches from heat, rotating pan occasionally and basting twice with poaching syrup, until apples are lightly browned on edges, 3 to 5 minutes.
