Apple Pie Undone
This recipe is one of our desserts to give thanks for.
Meanwhile, peel, core, and slice apples into 1/4-inch-thick pieces; toss with lemon juice. In a medium bowl, combine remaining sugar and flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt; set aside.
Heat butter in a large, deep sauté pan over high heat until it sizzles, about 1 minute. Add apples and cook until softened slightly, tossing occasionally, for 8 to 10 minutes. Sprinkle in sugar mixture, mix, and let come to a boil. Cook until apples are tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a compote dish and serve warm with cookies; garnish with cinnamon (if using).
Note: The cooked apples can be stored refrigerated for up to 1 day; heat over medium-low heat to gently rewarm—do not overcook.
