Skillet Cinnamon Apples

A kid-friendly nutritious side dish. So good it could even be dessert! Also great as a topping on pancakes or waffles. At first glance this looks like a lot of butter, but when you realize this is quite a large batch that serves 12, it's not that much per serving! Keep it even healthier by choosing to sweeten with honey rather than brown sugar!
