Last year, on one of my fun visits to the Marshall's Homegoods Store, I bought some apple plates on the clearance shelf. Little things excite me, like having an apple plate for my apple cookies...imagine that.
Easy recipe...good taste!
"Fresh apples are rich in immune boosting vitamin C, while the juice can help fight heart disease."
"Have an apple a day...to keep the doctor away. Research really seems to back this old saying."

For many years, my mother made these sauteed apples to serve with her amazing breakfasts. She knew how to cook and produce mouthwatering breakfast creations, that she served on many special occasions. I can't begin to count the times throughout the years, that my parents would host overnight guests, and my mother would serve them one of her delicious breakfasts. No wonder they would keep coming back. I remember my dad remarking about these apples, everytime she would serve them.
"Old-Fashioned Spiced Apples"
6 tart apples, cored peeled and thinly sliced
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
2 t. cinnamon
1/4 cup butter
(my mother added a drizzle of maple syrup to the apples at this point)
Toss apples with brown sugar and cinnamon; set aside. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat; add apples. Cover and cook until tender, 15 - 20 minutes, stirring frequently. Serve warm. Makes 6 servings.
I also remember her serving these over vanilla ice cream for dessert.
