1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
5 large Granny Smith apples (about 2 1/2 lb.), peeled and cut into 1/2-inch-thick wedges
Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat; add sugar and lemon juice, and cook, stirring constantly with a long-handled wooden spoon, 5 to 6 minutes or until mixture turns a light golden brown. Add apple wedges. Cook, stirring often, 15 to 18 more minutes or until apples are tender and caramelized. Remove from heat; cool 20 minutes.
