Glazed Apples in Caramel Sauce

Oxmoor House
This no-fuss treat comes together in minutes. The sauce, made of butter, apple juice, and a homemade caramel sauce, reduces while the apples bake, creating a velvety glaze. Make extra Caramel Sauce, and store it in the refrigerator to serve over pound cake or ice cream later in the week.

Yield:

4 servings (serving size: 1 apple and 1/4 cup caramel sauce)
