This is great for any meal, but is great for breakfast. The syrup from the apples is great on homemade waffles. You may add raisins to the sauce if you wish.

I give this one star because the butter and sugar aren't necessary. I use any Red apples on hand. A little water on the bottom of a pot, cut up apples, let cook til almost soft, add cinnamon: sweet & delish without butter or sugar. Can add a touch of maple syrup or honey if wanted. Read More

Simply divine! So good and so easy you'd be tempted to make this every day! Ya just gotta love it when a few ingredients that you have on hand come together to create something so delicious. I did throw in a bit of vanilla for good measure and used Granny Smith Apples that I had on hand. I opted to use this as a pancake topping, but this has so many possibilites...side dish for pork or ham, over french toast or oatmeal, over top ice cream or pound cake or just all by itself!

Yum! These were delicious and the entire family loved them. I used what I had on hand... half red delicious and half granny smith and added a bit more cinnamon since we love it. I cooked them a little longer since my kids like them tender. We served them over the Good Old Fashioned Pancakes recipe that is also on this site. The combination made a heavenly breakfast. We will definitely be making these on a regular basis and yes, they did remind us of the apples at Boston Market. Thank you for sharing Jenny! Read More

I had intended on using this for our pancake topping BUT half my family ate it before the pancakes were done!! The LOVED it! I ended up making a second batch exclusively for the pancakes...also well received!! I did add 1 tsp of vanilla too but it really doesn't matter = my family loved this by itself AND as a topping! Thanks a bunch Jenny! Read More

Don't you love when the "accurate and dependable's" tell you you're getting an inch of snow and you end up with eight? So for our snow day yesterday I decided that my only breakfast eater would really like this in her oatmeal. She absolutely loved this! I had Mac's and Granny's on hand but after reading Nicole's review decided that the Mac's would work better. They cooked up really fast. Thanks Jenny! Read More

great on top of pancakes or over ice cream. Sometimes I will throw in raisons or dried cranberries as well as walnuts for a change. Read More

I made this to go with pork chops instead of the usual applesauce. My husband loved it. I recomment using tart apples otherwise it would be too sweet. I would also add just a pinch of salt. I will be making this again. Read More
