We really enjoyed these. However I decided to turn the heat up and the apple halves burst and it turned into more of a sauce!! VERy tasty, this way too!!
1 jar of the decorating candies shown in the picture (I think they are sometimes called cinnamon hots.
2 apples (cut in half and cored, leave skin on) (I used Macintosh)
1/2 cup water or enough to cover bottom of pan about 1/2 inch.
Place the cinnamon candies and the water in the iron skillet or a non-stick skillet--or whatever. Place the apples face down in the liquid. The candies dissolve as they are cooked. Cook 15 minutes on low and then turn continue cooking until apples are soft. They will turn really red as they cook. When serving drizzle extra liquid over the apples---or just mix everything up and make more of an applesauce. GREAT flavor.
