We've been going through apples like crazy at my house. In fact, Sophie is quite the fanatic to the point that she's almost insane about them. "Apples! Apples! Hehehehe, apples!" That's what I hear when she sets her mind to apples.
Unfortunately, we haven't been able to keep up with our produce as well as I would like. In fact, this morning I noticed a few apples that were close to going bad, *gasp!* I decided this would be a good time to try my hand at one of Nana's signature dishes, Skillet Apples. I guess Nana has made these all my life; they are included in my childhood memories. These apples are very easy to make and nice and sweet. If you don't have a great sweet tooth, you'll want to use some nice tart apples as well.
Nana's Buttery Cinnamon Skillet Apples
1/3 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
4 medium cooking apples; unpeeled, cored and sliced into thick wedges, (about 8 slices each)
In a 10 inch skillet, melt butter or margarine over medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in sugar and cornstarch; mix well. Add remaining ingredients. Cover and cook over medium heat, spooning sauce over apples occasionally until apples are fork-tender and sauce is thickened.
