    You may be able to just omit it - how much is needed?

    That would depend on how much brandy is in the recipe, and the reason for substitution. Is it because you don't want to use any alcohol in the recipe, or you just don't have any brandy on hand?

    If it is a small amount, and you don't want to buy a large bottle because you only need it for the recipe, most liquor stores sell "airline sized" (1 1/2 oz) bottles for just a few dollars.

    If its just a small amount, you could sub rum, rye whiskey, Irish whiskey, bourbon, cognac, or even vodka (Scotch usually doesn't work, its too smokey).
    You could also probably use a dry or sweet white wine.
    Brandy flavoring/extract or rum flavoring/extract would also work.

    If you are looking for an alcohol free alternative, I would suggest:
    apple juice, white grape juice or another light colored "not too sweet" fruit juice.
