This is a simple delicious apple dessert that may easily be doubled if desired --- I like to also add in about 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg :)

We loved this! It was very simple to make. I didn't measure the cinnamon when I added it, but I'll add more next time. The sauce really is delicious and I was surprised to find it was almost the consistency of corn syrup!
