Soft Caramely Apples

We know, just looking at them makes you crave some more

This is a quick and easy dessert which is perfect for those late nights when you have a craving for something tasty.

All you need is apples, brown sugar and butter. This time we ate our caramely apples over vanilla ice cream but sometimes we put them in pastry dough, cook for about 10 minutes and have a quick homemade version apple turnovers.

Cut two apples (any type works. I try to use sour apples but usually sweet apples are all we have around) into medium sized pieces (about 8 to 10 pieces per apple is normal). We were so looking forward to our tasty dessert that we did not even peel them. It is up to you if you want to leave the skin or not (There are more vitamins if you leave the skin ;) ).

Cook the apples in a pan over medium heat with two tablespoons of melted butter. Cook for about 7 minutes or until the apples are quite soft. Add 3-4 tablespoons of brown sugar and cook for another 3-5 minutes. The apples should be soft and sitting in a delicious looking caramel sauce. If you want extra caramel sauce use more butter and more brown sugar. You can also add extra brown sugar if you love really really sweet apples.

Serve over vanilla ice cream or place in pastry dough (store bought works great!) and cook for about 10 minutes until the dough is brown.

Be careful, this recipe is addictive and supper easy. You will find yourself craving soft caramely apples all the time!
