Description

I love cooked apples! The tender fruit with the rich syrup glaze paired with a warm, flaky biscuit is one of my favorite foods of all time. While I normally serve these with biscuits, I can see them as an indulgent topping for pancakes, French toast, or even as a filling for an apple pie cinnamon roll. Hmmm. I see all sorts of recipes to come! The best thing about this recipe is minimum investment = huge return!

Ingredients

  • 1 whole Large Granny Smith Apple
  • 3 Tablespoons Butter
  • 2 Tablespoons Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Sugar
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • ¼ teaspoons Ground Cinnamon

Preparation

1. Peel and core a large Granny Smith apple. Slice the apple into 1/4-inch slices.
2. In a saucepan, melt butter over medium low heat.
3. Add the sliced apples to the pan.
4. Add the sugars, salt, and cinnamon to the pot.
5. Gently stir to coat all the apples.
6. Cover with a tight fitting lid. Reduce heat to low and allow to simmer, gently stirring occasionally.
7. Allow to cook for 20 minutes.
8. Remove from heat and serve!

Note: This recipe makes 2 servings. To increase the serving size, for every additional apple increase the other ingredients by half (except salt), e.g. 2 apples, 4 1/2 tablespoons butter, 3 tablespoons brown sugar, 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar, pinch of salt, 3/8 teaspoon cinnamon.
