1/3 cup butter
1/2 to 3/4 cup sugar (depends on how sweet your apples are)
2 tbsp cornstarch
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
4 medium-size apples, cored and cut in half
Using a 10-inch skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Stir in the sugar and cornstarch; mix well.
Add remaining ingredients. Cover; cook over medium heat, spooning the sauce over the apples occasionally until apples are fork tender and sauce is thickened (about 15 minutes). To serve, place 2 apples halves in individual dessert dishes; spoon 1/2 cup of the sauce over each of the 2 apple halves.
Yield: 4 servings.
