Cinnamon Apples

This is an easy but yummy way to make a meal more special. These apples are great as a side dish or on top of pancakes or waffles.



Cinnamon Apples

▪ ¼ cup butter
▪ 4 large tart apples, peeled, cored and sliced 1/4 inch thick
▪ 2 tsp cornstarch
▪ ½ cup cold water
▪ ½ cup brown sugar
▪ ½ tsp cinnamon

In a large skillet or saucepan, melt butter over medium heat; add apples. Cook, stirring constantly, until apples are almost tender, about 6 to 7 minutes.

Dissolve cornstarch in water; add to skillet. Stir in brown sugar and cinnamon. Boil for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and serve warm.


Notes: Even though this recipe calls for a tart apple, I usually use Golden Delicious. This makes plenty of syrup and is so good on pancakes!

Only three more recipes until Christmas!

They are great on top of ice cream also!

Oh thank-you! I have always wanted to make those, but didn't know how. My kids will love them! And to put them atop the ice cream is a great idea!
