Sweet and cinnamon-y hot apples or pears over toasted cinnamon bread, topped with whipped cream or ice cream
2 medium-large ripe pears OR tart apples, cored, peeled and thinly sliced
1/2 cup water, divided
3 Tablespoons sugar
1 Tablespoon raisins
1/2 Tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
dash ground nutmeg
1 Tablespoon cornstarch
3-4 slices of cinnamon bread or cinnamon bagel, toasted
Ice cream or whipped cream, optional
1. In medium-sized saucepan, heat fruit, 1/4 cup water, sugar, raisins, butter, cinnamon, and nutmeg, stirring occasionally, until boiling. Boil just until fruit is tender.
2. In small bowl, whisk together cornstarch and 1/4 cup water until smooth. Add to fruit mixture. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, and cook for 1-2 minutes, until thickened.
3. Serve warm fruit mixture over cinnamon toast. Top with ice cream or whipped cream if desired.
This is a very easy, very quick summer dessert recipe. It's sweet, but not too sweet. The amount of cinnamon lends a wonderful flavor and beautiful autumn color! Much easier than making apple pie, and can be made on the stove-top, this is a great beginner recipe or quick-fix! My rating: 10/10
