--- advertisement ---

  • 2 medium apples, cored but not peeled and sliced into ½-inch thick rings
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Dash of salt



  1. Heat butter over medium-low heat in a large, heavy skillet. In a small bowl, stir together sugar, cinnamon and salt. Set aside.
  2. Place the apples in a single layer in the bottom of the skillet.
  3. Sprinkle half of the sugar mixture over the apples.
  4. Cook apples for 5 minutes without moving them. Then use a spatula to gently flip the apple slices.
    Sprinkle with remaining sugar mixture and continue to cook apples over low heat until apples are almost transparent (about 3-5 more minutes). Be careful not to overcook the apples or they will fall apart.
  5. Serve immediately.
