Spiced Apples

Delicious, easy and simple... need I say more?

1/2 cup butter or margarine
8 large apples, peeled, cored and sliced
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add apples and remaining ingredients.  Saute 15 to 20 minutes or until apples are tender.

Yields 8 servings

It did not take the full 20 minutes for the apples to become tender.

Tip: careful to not overcook, this will cause the juice or sauce to caramalize.  Place apples in water after cutting to prevent them from turning brown until they are ready to be sauted.

According to my children... Cracker Barrel has been outdone!

These are easy peasy to freeze... use a quart freezer bag, don't forget to write the date and name and Voila!

Serving Suggestions:

Spoon warm spiced apples over vanilla bean ice cream... Yum!
Use to top pancakes... oh boy!
Use as fried pie filling... Delicious and probably not nutritious.
Serve as a side dish... feel my hips widening... oh dear.
