Ingredients 1-4 firm apples (suggest tart like Pink Lady/Granny Smith), peeled, cored and sliced
1/2 stick of salted butter
1 cinnamon stick
1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Tools needed: 1 chef knife, 1 large nonstick skillet, 1 spatula
In a heavy bottomed pan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the peeled, cored and sliced apples and 1 cinnamon stick. Cook until the apples are just about to the texture you want, about 5-10 minutes depending on how many apples you've used.
While that's cooking, dissolve the cornstarch in the cold water and add to the skillet. This will help thicken your apples. Stir in the brown sugar and ground cinnamon. Let this come to a boil, stirring for a couple minutes until the apples have achieved the perfect texture. Remove from the heat and serve over ice cream.
