You can use this topping for waffles, pancakes, ice cream, or Dr. Grandma’s 'Shortcake Muffins''.


4 cups cooking apples; peeled and coarsely chopped fresh baking apples like Roma, Rome Beauty, Fuji, Granny Smith, Jonathan, McIntosh, Newton Pippin, Rhode Island Greening, or Winesap.

1/4 cup water

1 to 2 tablespoons sweetener of your choice (to taste)

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon maple flavoring


Stir apples, water, and sweetener in a 2-quart saucepan.

Cover and heat to boiling; reduce heat and simmer covered 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until apples are tender. Note: Cook apples while making the waffles, pancakes or other item to be topped.

Drain any excess liquid and stir in cinnamon and maple flavoring.
