sauteed apples

Fall is pumpkins, apples, cinnamon and nutmeg. Fall is comfort food, rich and buttery. Sautéed apples are the perfect fall dessert, and this recipe, with no added sugar, is also relatively guilt-free.

Makes 2 servings
New quantity:

Total time: 15 minutes
Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 10 minutes

2 medium Fuji apples (each 6oz whole, 4oz peeled and sliced)
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 tablespoons heavy whipping cream (optional)

1. Peel the apples, core and slice (I simply cut each apple in half, then cut into quarters around the core and then slice).

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. Transfer the sautéed apples into two individual serving plates. Top with a dollop of whipped cream. Serve immediately.
