Apple “Pie” for One (or more)

I LOVE apple pie! Man and BoyWonder??? not so much! So when I get that gotta have some apple pie feeling, I often make Faux Apple Pie. The beauty of this METHOD (not really a recipe) is that you can make enough for one or more quickly!

Ready?  You need the following:

  • med/large apple (one per serving)—peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
  • butter
  • apple pie spice (or cinnamon)
  • sugar (granulated, brown, raw…you pick)
  • panko

Here we go….

Stir to distribute spices.

Add sugar. Stir and cook for a few minutes. (Until apples are just shy of how well you want them cooked…remember this is a METHOD, not a recipe…like mushy apples? cook longer) Winking smile

Add panko and a little more butter. The butter helps the panko to brown nicely!

Continue to cook, stirring, until your panko is browned.
