Cinnamon Breakfast Apples

Recipe by Mysterygirl

An old recipe that I just stumbled over again. Tastes great on homemade biscuits. With some grits and eggs and you have a real "southern" breakfast treat.

Very good! I melted the butter in a 12 inch saucepan then layered the apples and sugar mixed with cinnamon. They were very flavorful, not at all difficult to make. I took them up after the 15 minutes, we like a little crunch. We had these with biscuits and eggs as suggested (no grits) :-) I will make these again. Thanks Mysterygirl!
