Apples, maple syrup and cinnamon are microwaved, then pureed, for quick and easy apple butter that's great on any fresh baked good, or sandwich.

This was much quicker and easier than my regular apple butter, done in the crockpot, which I haven't had time for. It comes out a little runnier than normal, closer to applesauce, but it will be good for those recipes that take apple butter in them. I would add a bit more spices next time to kick it up a bit.

This is extremely easy. I didn't even peel or slice the apples very thin. The blender makes it really smooth and the microwave makes it fast. I made it with sugar free syrup and it turned out great! It will be a great present for my mom who is diabetic. THANKS!
