Place sugar, spice mix, and butter in a deep dish saucepan or skillet
Let cook on medium shaking the pan to assist even cooking.
Once all the sugar is dissolved reduce the heat to a minimum to prevent burning.
The sugar will start to caramelize into a light amber color.
Assist even cooking by gently shaking the pan.
Once you reach a light amber color add in the chopped apples, lemon, pumpkin spice and a pinch of salt.
Continue to cook on low heat letting the apple release their juices and soften.
You want the apples to cook and become soft and tender so they melt in the mouth.
And you want some of the juice to evaporate so the caramel will not be too runny.
Continue to cook for two more minutes letting it thicken
Add cream and continue to thicken some more
Remove from heat and set aside to cool until just warm.
Cool until barely warm and to room temperature
Serve in a bowl topped with vanilla ice cream
