Crisp cool morning air should be filled with the smell of cinnamon and apples! Skillet Cinnamon Apples are simple to make and can be used in so many different ways. They quickly became a fall staple at our house!
Hi everyone! It’s Amy from Little Dairy on the Prairie! I feel like it’s been forever since I shared a yummy recipe with over here! These yummy apples seriously hit the spot for me all fall long! I always end up making a huge skillet of them and have leftovers, which is no problem at all. I like to make Greek yogurt parfaits out of them. I also spoon them over cinnamon pita chips and top it off with a drizzle of caramel sauce and whipped cream to make apple nachos. They are equally delicious on top of pork roast. Let me know if you come up with other ways of using them!
First of all you need to peel, core, and slice a bunch of apples. This apple peeler makes it really quick, especially since this little guy does all the spinning! If I don’t want too many leftovers I usually peel an apple for each person. It might be a little too much, but it works for us!
Melt butter in a skillet. Can I just say, “I love butter?”
Throw the apples in the skillet. Add a little brown sugar and apple pie spice.
Toss to coat the apples in all that yummy butter. Get ready because your kitchen is going to smell really, really good soon! Keep cooking for a few minutes. That’s all there is to it!
These apples are like a little taste of fall in a bowl!
