- ¼ cup + 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 6 large Macintosh or Cortland apples, peeled and quartered
- ¼ cup butter
- ¼ cup packed brown sugar
- ¼ cup apple cider

Place lemon juice in a bowl. Cut apple quarters lengthwise into ¼ inch thick slices; toss in the lemon juice to coat. In a heavy skillet, melt the butter; add the apples and cook stirring for about 7 minutes until tender. Stir in the sugar, cinnamon, and then pour the apple cider on top. Warm the apples thoroughly and serve with a scoop of fresh ice cream or enjoy alone. Makes 6 to 8 servings.
