One of my favorite things to see cooking when I was growing up were baked apples. Contrary to their name, they're not actually baked - they're cooked in a frying pan! When I was little I would sneak into the kitchen while these were cooking and steal the apples with the most brown sugar on them. In all honestly, that's half the fun of making these - the snacking.
5 large apples (I used gala)
3 Tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Peel, core, and slice apples. Add apples, brown sugar, and cinnamon to a large pan and stir until apples are coated.
Cook on medium for 15 or so minutes, stirring every few minutes, until apples are cooked through.
They're seriously good. I especially like them served with pork. Mmmmm...
