How to make this recipe

  1. In a large nonstick skillet, melt the butter. Add the apples and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned and tender, about 5 minutes. Add the heavy cream, sugar and salt and simmer until thickened, about 3 minutes. Let cool slightly before serving with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream and julienned apples.
