2 medium apples
2 tsp margarine
sugar and cinnamon to taste
dried cranberries, optional
Peel and thinly slice the apples.
Melt margarine in saucepan or skillet. Add sliced apples and cook, stirring occasionally. Apples should start to brown a little.
Add water to almost cover the apples. Heat to boiling. Stir in cranberries, if desired.
Mix a heaping teaspoon of cornstarch in about 1/4 cup cold water. Pour into the apple mixture, stirring constantly. As it continues to boil, the sauce will thicken. When it reaches the desired consistency, remove from heat and sprinkle with some sugar and cinnamon.
This is good served over pancakes instead of using syrup.
