Cinnamon apples needn't necessarily be had at Thanksgiving or Christmas, but can be enjoyed almost anytime you want. It's a lovely dessert, that can be had with ice cream or can even form the filling of a pie. It's also a popular side dish for various meats. Some even have it as it is for breakfast. Let's find out how it's prepared.

Recipe 1
Ingredients
  • 2 cups fat-free milk
  • ⅓ cup cornmeal
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar (packed) or brown sugar substitute
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 medium, cooking apple wedges
  • ¼ cup raisins
  • Oil spray
Method of Preparation

Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Coat six '6' ounce custard cups with non-stick cooking spray and place them on a baking pan. Keep the pan aside for a while. Now in a medium saucepan, heat 1½ cups milk over medium heat, and bring it to a boil. Mix cornmeal with the remaining ½ cup of milk in a small bowl. Then whisk the cornmeal slowly into the hot milk. Once again bring the milk to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and cook for another 5 minutes.

Next, stir in the sugar, cinnamon, and salt into the milk. Beat an egg with a fork in a small bowl and then add it to the hot milk mixture. Stir in the apples and raisins. Now, divide the mixture equally into the 6 custard cups. Bake the custard bowls for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the baked custard comes out clean. Cool the custard bowls on a wire rack for 20 minutes. Serve the cinnamon apples warm.

Recipe 2
Ingredients
  • 1 or 2 apples
  • A dash or more of cinnamon
  • A slice of butter
Method of Preparation

Peel the apples and slice them. Put a thick slice of butter into a frying pan and fry the apples. Let the apples sit for 5 minutes. Make sure the apples do not get burned. Once the apples are as soft as desired, put a dash of cinnamon into the pan. You should add only a dash or so of cinnamon to prevent the apples from burning. Toss the apples for about a minute. Now place the apples in a serving bowl and enjoy.

Recipe 3
Ingredients
  • 4 large apples
  • 4 (18 x 12 inches) heavy-duty foil sheets, lightly sprayed with non-stick cooking spray
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar, packed
  • ¼ cup dried cranberries
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons butter, cut into 4 pieces
  • Vanilla ice cream
Method of Preparation

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Peel the apples and core them. In a small bowl, mix brown sugar, cranberries, and cinnamon. Coat these apples with this rub and then place them at the center of the foil sheet. Place 1 piece of butter on the apples and then double fold the sides and ends of the foil to form packets.

Leave some head space in the foil packets for heat circulation. Place these sealed apples into the oven and bake for 20 minutes. Once they've been cooked, carefully open the foil packets and wrap the foil around apples, such that there remains no head space. Bake for another 10 minutes to tenderize the apples. Once this is done, allow the apples to cool slightly, then unwrap the apples and serve them in bowls along with vanilla ice cream.

Recipe 4
Ingredients
  • 1 medium apple, cored and thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • Butter-flavored cooking spray
Method of Preparation

Spray a microwave-safe baking dish with butter-flavored cooking spray, and then place thinly sliced apples in a single layer. Spray the apples with butter-flavored cooking spray. Mix cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl. Sprinkle this cinnamon-sugar mixture over apples evenly. Microwave for 2-3 minutes and after about every minute, check if the apples are soft enough.

Recipe 5
Ingredients
  • 6 large, tart apples, cored, sliced, and peeled
  • 1 cup golden raisin
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 4 tablespoons butter, sliced
Method of Preparation

Add all the ingredients except the butter into a CrockPot. Stir the ingredients, so as to coat all the apple slices. Next place slices of butter on top of the apples. Cook on high for 1½ to 2 hours. You can even cook on low for 3½ to 4 hours, stirring the apples once half way through. Once done, serve warm.

Preparing this dish is extremely simple, and the outcome is very rewarding. The next time you bring home some apples, make sure you try this out. All the best!
