- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 5 ripe, firm apples (about 2 pounds), such as Golden Delicious, peeled, cored, and sliced into 1/2-inch-thick wedges, tossed with 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1 cinnamon stick, broken in half
- 4 tablespoons sugar
Divide ingredients in half, and work in two batches. Melt butter in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add apples and cinnamon. Sprinkle with sugar; toss to coat. Saute until apples are browned, about 5 minutes, tossing often. Transfer to a gratin dish. Serve warm.
