1. In a 4 to 6-quart soup pot with a thick bottom, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the onions and season with 1 teaspoon of salt and a few grinds of pepper. Mix thoroughly.
2. Reduce the heat to low, cover the pot with a lid, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are very soft but not falling apart, and golden brown, about 40 to 50 minutes. Add the sherry, Worcestershire sauce and spices. Stir well.
3. Add the broth and bay leaf and bring the soup to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to medium low and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove the bay leaf and season to taste with salt and pepper.
4. To serve, put an oven rack about 6 inches from the broiler and heat the broiler to high. Place 6 broiler-proof soup crocks on a baking sheet. Ladle in soup, portioning evenly, until each crock is full to about 1/2 inch from the top. Layer 3 to 5 apple slices on top of each, and sprinkle liberally with the cheese. Broil until the top is browned and bubbly, 2 to 5 minutes. Serve immediately.
