Cinnamon Apples

Tonight's dinner was pancakes. Rebekah offered to make them, so I was free to make bacon and cinnamon apples. These are a simple add-on to pancakes, and deliver a wonderful freshness to the pancakes.

Recipe 1 apple, skinned and chopped small
2 T brown sugar
1 t cinnamon
a tiny pinch ground cloves (optional)
1 T butter

In a small bowl, mix the brown sugar, cinnamon and, optionally, the cloves.
In a small skillet over medium heat, add the butter. After the butter is mostly melted, add the brown sugar mixture.

Add the apples and gently push the apples into a single layer so they are in contact with the butter & sugar. Cook over medium heat, maintaining a slight simmer. They will slowly darken and soften. You can pull them off whenever they are as soft as you like.

 After cooking for just a few minutes:

Move the cooked apples to a bowl and serve or eat right away. YUM!
Chocolate chips add extra YUM :)
