Warm Cinnamon Apples

Monday, October 13, 2014

The other day I went grocery shopping and bought 8 apples. Why? Why does anyone {over} shop at the grocery store? I had visions of eating apples and peanut butter for a snack every night for the next 8 days. 

I went home thinking I made this great decision. Instead of candy, I'm going to eat this healthy apple snack when I have a craving. That night I had an apple and peanut butter and basked in my good decision making. Yes, great job Sarah. 

A week later, I had 7 apples sitting in my kitchen. With the fear of apples going bad, I started the search online for apple recipes. What can I make with 7 apples? I came across a recipe from Southern Living for cinnamon apples. Perfect! 

So tonight on this dreary night I made cinnamon apples. They turned out great, and were taste tester approved (thank you Steven). 


Yum!!!!

See below for recipe. If anyone makes them let me know! They were delish.
