Sautéed Apples

Any variety of apples will work in this easy dish; however, the length of cooking time may vary.  It tastes best when the apples are cooked until just tender, so be careful not to let them get mushy.

Makes 4 servings

2          teaspoons margarine
4          small, sweet apples, unpeeled, cored, and cut into rings ¼-inch thick
2          tablespoons firmly packed brown sugar
1          teaspoon vanilla extract
½         teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼         teaspoon ground nutmeg

Gather your ingredients.

 Melt margarine in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.

 Add apples.
 Cook, stirring and turning apples frequently, until tender, about 10 minutes. 
Add small amounts of water if necessary, to prevent sticking.

Sprinkle apples with remaining ingredients.  
Toss to melt the sugar and coat the apples evenly.

Serve warm.

  1. The apples look really good! I love anything with cinnamon on it.
