Recipe: Sauteed Cinnamon Apples

There is something about this time of year that just makes me crave the warming spices, warm temperature desserts! What about you?!

Cinnamon apples were a staple for me growing up when my mom would throw together “Breakfast for dinner”. Being a mom of 4, she had to find nourishing meals for us kids, that was simple and didnt take her hours in the kitchen, not to mention that we all would eat. These were definitely a winner!

They are so good and I’m pretty sure anyone at any age will think these are a sweet treat.

Here is an EASY and tasty way to incorporate more apples into your winter dishes — sautéed cinnamon apples! It takes maybe 15-20 minutes.

What you need:

1-2 apples, sliced (I used Honeycrisp since that's what I had but honestly any work!)

1 tbsp butter (I always recommend grass-fed when you can)

Cinnamon (I’ll leave this to your preference)

1 tbsp whiskey (optional)

What to do:

Slice up your apples medium to thin thickness and set to the side.

Add 1 tbsp of butter to your pan, on medium heat, and let it start to melt.

Toss in your apples, mixing so the butter coats the apples evenly. Then add your cinnamon and whiskey to the pan.

Toss it all together and let it simmer on low to medium heat, until the apples are soft (roughly about 15-20 minutes).

Some of my favorite ways to enjoy these are:

  • With some pancakes and waffles for breakfast (or dinner)

  • on top of some vanilla yogurt or ice cream

  • by themselves

Share with me how you incorporate these into your rotation this cooler season!
