Sauteed Apples

Sauteed Apples
I'm not a huge fan of canned pie filling because it's just too sweet for my taste. So when I need cooked sweet apples for recipes, this is how I make them. It's so quick, easy and costs less than the canned variety. These sautéed apples are heavenly when served warm with a scoop of ice cream!

I've used these sauteed apples as a filling in recipes such as
Apple Pie Egg Rolls, and Super Easy Dessert Crepes.

I know there are LOTS of rules out there about what kind of apples to use depending on the recipe. Take a look *here* and you will see what I'm talking's crazy!  I don't like to follow I could never remember all the info in that link. I just use what tastes good to me. In this recipe I used McIntosh apples, but you can use any kind you prefer.
