  • Stove


  • 4 medium size apples - I used Envy Apples
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 tsp cornstarch


  • Peel, core and slice apples. Once the apples are sliced, cut the slices in half.
  • Melt butter and cinnamon over medium heat.
  • Add in apples, sugar and the 3 tablespoons water.
  • Cover and cook stirring occasionally for 6-8 minutes.
  • In a small dish combine cornstarch and water.
  • Add the cornstarch mixture to the pan while stirring and continue to cook until apples are soft and filling is thickened. Approximately 3 - 5 minutes.
  • Let boil for an additional one minute.
  • Let cool. Sauce will thicken as it cools.
  • Enjoy on ice cream yogurt, by itself or in a pie crust!


If you would like your filling thicker, combine 1 tablespoon cornstarch with 1 tablespoon water. Add a little at a time while the mixture is boiling until you reach desired consistency.
