1 pound of peeled and cored apples cut into slices.
1 tbsp of butter.
2 tbsps of granulated or light brown sugar.
½ tsp of ground cinnamon.
A squeeze of fresh lemon juice (optional).
The amount of the sugar used in this recipe depends on the type of the apples you choose.
Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat and stir in the apple slices.
Let cook for a few minutes stirring occasionally then add the mixture of sugar and cinnamon.
Cook for 5 minutes covered. Once the apples are tender, uncover and cook to thicken the juices.
Feel free to add 1 tbsp of water if you think the juice is too little.
Once the syrup is thickened let cool a bit before serving and voila!
Easy, peasy and sweet! I don’t use a lot of sugar as I don’t like these fried apples too sweet, but feel free to add as much sugar as you like!
