First, head to the grocery store and look for Granny Smith, Pink Lady, or Fuji apples. These kinds of apples will work best for this recipe. Next, you need to peel and core the apples and chop them into bite-sized pieces. You can squeeze a little lemon juice on the apples to prevent them from turning brown before they reach the pan.

Get out a pan and add sugar, butter, and cinnamon. Cook on low-medium heat for about two minutes. Stir frequently. Then add in your apples and cook until they are nice and soft. It should take about 12-15 minutes. Here is the full list of ingredients for four servings:
