This is my favorite time of the year, and some of my favorite things to eat are during this season. Pies, apples, squash, soups…I am so ready! I love all the warm spices used and the way your entire home smells after cooking or baking with them.
This is a simple dessert recipe that I like to use. It takes a total of 10 minutes (maybe even less if you prep fast!) and has 5 ingredients. I’m telling ya, super easy!
What You’ll Need
granny smith apple
3 tbsp. butter
French vanilla ice cream
Start by rinsing the apple, and then use an apple slicer to remove the core and have even slices. If some slices are bigger than you’d like, feel free to cut them in half.
In a pan on medium-high heat, add the apples, butter, and sprinkle liberally with cinnamon and sugar.
Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring every so often. They are ready to serve when they are golden and there is some syrup formed in the pan.
Place the apples over your favorite brand of French vanilla ice cream, drizzle some syrup over the top, and enjoy!
There you have it! Another easy recipe for you to try.

So for those of you that don’t know, I have quite the sweet-tooth. I definitely am a chocolate lover as well. Obviously that means we need some sort of dessert recipe!
Normally oatmeal cookies are made with brown sugar, but when I made these I didn’t have any on hand. So, I decided to try it out with some regular sugar instead, and loved the end result! Now this is the only way I make mine at home.
