As part of my Personal Chef business, I also offer cooking demos for local businesses.  Last weekend, I baked my Soft Ginger Cookies for a Fall Fair at Falcon Pointe in one of their model homes.

While I was there, I met a friendly fellow Austin blogger, Cat Jones, who writes the blog, The Whimsical Gardener.  She prepared several variations of her Fall Fabulous Bundt Cake, all of which were very good.

My plan was also to make my Hot Apple Cider with the cookies, but it turned out the gas to the model home hadn’t been turned on yet. Scratch that!

So, I suddenly found myself this morning with a bunch of lovely organic gala apples for which I had no use.  Hmm.

Cinnamon apples are so ridiculously easy to make and are great during this time of year.  They’ll make your home smell like the holidays and are a lovely topping to yogurt, ice cream, pancakes, waffles or just by themselves.

Cinnamon Apples

4 apples, peeled, cored and sliced
1/2 cup loosely packed brown sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp. ground ginger
1/8 tsp. kosher salt
1 tbsp. unsalted butter


In a large mixing bowl, combine the apples, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and salt. Toss to evenly coat the apples.

Heat a large sauce pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Add butter and allow to melt. Cook apple mixture over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 8 to 10 minutes or until apples are tender.
