Cinnamon Apples

January 23, 2009

I love apple pie and apple crisp, but what I really love about it is the filling…cinnamony, sweet, slightly tart apple slices that still have a little firmness to them.  Making cinnamon apples is a really quick way to get that taste, and with fewer calories than in a pie.  You can eat these plain like I do, or put them on French toast, pancakes, waffles, oatmeal, ice cream or whipped cream for a good breakfast or dessert.  Serves 4.


4 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and cut into 12 slices each

1 T unsalted butter

1 T water

3 T sugar or apple juice concentrate

1/2 t ground cinnamon

2 t fresh lemon juice


Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.  Add apples and tablespoon of water and stir to coat.  Let cook for 1-2 minutes until the apples start to release moisture.  Add the sugar and cinnamon and stir.  Let cook 3-5 more mintues until apples reach desired tenderness.  Turn off heat, and sprinkle with lemon juice.  Stir and serve.
