  1. Heat oven to 450°F. Place a greased wire rack on an aluminum foil-lined rimmed baking sheet.
  2. Pat chicken wings dry with paper towels. Cut wings through joints into three sections; discard wing tips. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Arrange wings in a single layer on rack. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a thermometer inserted into meat reads 165°F.
  4. Meanwhile, bring the apple cider, hard apple cider, Worcestershire sauce and honey to a boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to medium. Simmer, uncovered, for 8-10 minutes or until sauce is reduced to about 3/4 cup, stirring occasionally. Combine cornstarch and water in a small bowl until smooth; stir into cider mixture. Cook and stir for 2-3 minutes or until thickened.
  5. Toss wings with 1/4 cup sauce in a large bowl. Return wings to pan. Broil 4 inches from the heat for 2 minutes.
  6. Sprinkle wings with butterkäse. Broil for 1-2 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Serve with remaining sauce.
