Ingredients

  • 4

    medium apples

  • 3

    Tbsp. water

  • 2

    Tbsp. butter

  • 1

    tsp. cinnamon

  • 1/3

    cup sugar

  • 1

    Tbsp. + 1 tsp. cornstarch

  • 2

    Tbsp. water

Directions

Peel, core and slice apples. Melt butter and cinnamon over medium heat. Stir in apples, sugar & 1/4 cup water. Cover and cook stirring occasionally for 4-6 minutes or until very slightly softened. In a small dish combine cornstarch and water. Add to pan while stirring and continue to cook until apples are soft (not mushy) and filling is thickened. Let bubble 1 minute. Cool. Notes: Choose a variety of apples that hold up well to cooking such as Granny Smith. Some apples are juicier than others. If you would like your filling thicker, combine 1 Tbsp. cornstarch with 1 Tbsp. water. Add a little at a time while the mixture is boiling until you reach desired consistency. It would be great in the fridge for about 3 days. If it is going to be longer than that, I’d suggest freezing it.
