TOFFEE SAUCE

 ¾ cup heavy cream
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 tablespoon unsalted butter

Bring cream, brown sugar and butter to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and stir occasionally for about 5 minutes. Take the saucepan out of the heat, stir in vanilla.

SUGAR GLAZE

Whisk everything in a bowl.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Divide apple combination into prepared pans, put streusel over apples. Set the small spring form pans on a sheet pan or any large oven tray.
