Warm Skillet Cinnamon Apples

"A quick dessert to serve for family and company that is a healthy alternative to a baked pie or crisp. If you want to make it a bit "less healthy" serve topped with vanilla ice cream or whipped topping. :-)"

    What's the best way to save leftovers? I'd like to fix this but can't eat all of it.

    This was fantastic. I served it over steel cut oatmeal for breakfast for my children. They devowed it. I will use the leftovers in hand pies. The only ‘tweak’ I will make to the recipe next time is to reduce the sugar a bit. It wasn’t at all too sweet. It was just so good that I feel it will be just as good if I reduced the sugar a bit. I’m going to use this recipe to make a pie filling next time with sliced apples.

    I've needed a recipe like this for a long time. Love it, and my picky kids raved about it.

    These apples were delish and I served them on their own as I did not have vanilla ice cream or whipped topping. I do think that the apples would shine much more with either the ice cream or a whipped cream to balance the flavour of the nutmeg and cinnamon. I am sure that with this balance it would be a 5 star recipe. Super easy to put together.
