Cinnamon Apples

After a delicious lettuce wrap and Chinese dumpling dinner recently, one of my friends whipped up a quick and delicious dessert for all of us to enjoy. While we ate this treat plain, I think it would make a great addition to other desserts, as well. You will make it in your microwave, so it couldn't be easier.


Cut the apple into slices. Place the slices in a bowl with about 1/4 cup of water. Sprinkle the apples with the cinnamon and sugar to taste. Microwave the apples for one minute and check to see if they're done. Add more time, if necessary. Obviously, if you use more apples, you'll need more of everything else.

We ate them with our hands right off a communal plate. But, I think their are many options for this dessert. I'm dreaming of vanilla ice cream with the cinnamon apples and a tad of granola. Covering a muffin or scone in the apples would make a tasty treat. If you make snickerdoodles, I would add some cinnamon apples when they're still hot out of the oven. This would also be a lovely addition to oatmeal. For a decadent breakfast, use the apples as a topping for waffles, pancakes or cinnamon rolls. Are you hungry yet?
