Sautéed apples are the perfect fall dessert, and this recipe, containing no added sugar, is also guilt-free.
- 2 medium Fuji apples (each 6 oz whole, 4 oz peeled and sliced)
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 4 tablespoons heavy whipping cream (optional but really good)
- Peel the apples, core and slice (I simply cut each apple in half, then cut into quarters around the core and then slice).
- In a large skillet, heat the butter over medium heat. When melted, swirl to coat the bottom of the skillet, then add the apple slices in a single layer. Sprinkle with the cinnamon. Cook 3-4 minutes, until golden-brown on the bottom. Flip to the other side and cook 2-3 more minutes, until golden-brown and fork-tender.
- While apples are cooking, use a hand-held electric whisk to whip the cream, if using it. There's no need to sweeten the whipped cream - the sweetness of the apples will combine with the richness of the cream to create the perfect experience.
- Transfer the sautéed apples into two individual serving plates. Top with a dollop of whipped cream. Serve immediately.
