Tip: To saute` apples: Melt 3 tablespoons butter in a skillet, add 2 cooking apples (cored and cut into wedges), and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons sugar (more or less) depending on how sweet the apples are). Cook, turning often, until apples are lightly browned. Garnish apples with a light sprinkling of cinnamon sugar.
