It’s almost that time of year…apple dumplings, apple pies. If you have too many apples and you are afraid they are going to go bad, cut them into wedges or small chunks. Add them into a saucepan and sauté them in butter over medium heat. When done, spinkle a half sugar/cinnamon mixture on top. You’ve got a great quick treat.
