With delicious crunchy apples smothered in a comforting cinnamon based butter sauce, this apple cinnamon filling makes a perfect pie or cake filling. This recipe is very simple to make and can be used in endless desserts. Additional it smells amazing !!


4 Gala Apples, Peeled and diced

1 Tbsp lemon Juice

1/2 Cup Brown Sugar

1 Tbsp Butter

1 Tsp Cinnamon

1/4 Tsp Salt

1 1/2 Cups Water

1 Tbsp Honey

1Tbsp Vanilla Extract

1 Tbsp Cornstarch


- Add butter and prepared apples to a deep sauce pan and sauté together just until butter has melted.

- Add lemon juice, cinnamon, salt and sugar to the apples. Cook stirring occasionally until apples have softened but are still slightly firm.

- In a separate bowl, mix together the water and corn starch to create a slurry. Add the slurry to the sauce pan stirring constantly. Simmer until thickened. (Please note, this will thicken a bit more after cooling.)

- Remove from the heat and stir in vanilla extract.

- Add to your desired dessert such as pie, cake, waffles or maybe on a big bowl of ice cream!

Note: for pies that will be baked, skip the cooking process and simply mix everything together, then pour into your prepared pie dough.
