  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 5 Golden Delicious apples (about 2 pounds)—halved, cored, peeled and sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 fresh lemon juice

How to make this recipe

  1. In a large nonstick skillet, melt the butter. Add the apples, sugar and cinnamon and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until the apples are tender and the mixture is thickened, 8 to 10 minutes. Sprinkle in the cornstarch and simmer, stirring, for 1 minute. Remove the skillet from the heat and stir in the lemon juice. Scrape the filling into a medium bowl and let cool slightly before using or serving.

Make Ahead

The filling can be refrigerated overnight.
