Tip: Think of apple butter as a highly concentrated form of applesauce. It's made by cooking the fruit in cider or water long and slow--to the point where the sugars caramelize, giving the spread its rich flavor, deep color and thick texture.
To make ahead: Refrigerate compote (Step 1) for up to 1 week. Refrigerate whipped cream (Step 5) for up to 1 day.
