Kissed with fragrant cinnamon and brown sugar, these apples are a sublime brunch side.
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
4 apples, such as Melrose, peeled, cored and sliced ⅓-inch thick
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
Pinch of cinnamon
1. In a large skillet, melt the butter. Add the apple slices and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned in spots, about 5 minutes.
2. Stir in the sugar and cinnamon, reduce the heat to low and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened and lightly caramelized, about 10 minutes longer.
