I needed to use up a granny smith apple and I needed a side dish... bingo. With more sugar and cinnamon and a little longer cooking time, this would be an excellent ice cream topping. It is a pretty standard recipe.
Sauteed Apples Serves: 2
Ingredients: +1 medium granny smith apple, sliced thinly +1 tablespoon butter (no substitutes) +1 tablespoon brown sugar +4 drops vanilla extract (the real stuff) +sprinkling of cinnamon
1. In a small fry pan, heat the butter and vanilla until melted over medium heat. Toss in the apples and everything else. Saute for about 5 minutes (or until desired firmness). For a side dish, I recommend cooking briefly unless you like mushy apples.
