Easy Cinnamon Apples Recipe

Ingredients:

*2 apples

*2 tablespoons of brown sugar

*1 teaspoon of cinnamon

*2 tablespoons of butter (not required)

How to make them:

1) Peel apples (optional- I did because my toddlers don’t eat the skin)

2) Core apples and arrange in a small casserole dish or bowl

3) Mix brown sugar and cinnamon together in a separate bowl and then sprinkle mixture on top of apples

4) Add butter (optional- I also cut mine into pieces so that the butter all wasn’t in one place)

5) Microwave for 1 minute, stir, and then microwave for another 45 seconds (microwave times vary… apples should be soft)

6) Stir again and enjoy

*** For additional yumminess, serve with caramel praline ice cream (or plain vanilla ice cream)***
