Superfood of the Week – Apples

Superfood of the Week – Apples

What is your favorite recipe that uses this food?

My two cents, but please share yours:

Apples are one of fall’s great treasures. Melt 2T butter in a small skillet, and add 1-2 apples that have been sliced into thin wedges. Stir to coat all of the apple pieces with butter and cook until soft.

Sprinkle 2-4T brown sugar onto the apple mixture. Continue cooking and stirring until the butter-brown-sugar sauce is bubbling and gooey.

Pour all over warmed puff pastry toppers (precooked 3″ x 3″ squares). Serve immediately and enjoy.


  1. I eat an apple as part of my lunch every day. Love them plain or sliced with a little cinnamon sprinkled over them. Since going gluten-free, one of my most missed treats is apple pie. My husband tried to make gluten-free crust but it fell apart. Oh well. Plain apples are good too. 🙂

    • You’re so right, Jolyse. Plain always works. Also, if the gluten-free crust falls apart, you can turn the dish into an apple crumble with all the same lovely pie flavors. 🙂 Cheers, Ashley

  2. That sounds delicious! I’d add a hint of cinnamon too. I like apples on my gluten-free waffles. 🙂

    • Hi CJ, Fruit and cheese pair well, especially over waffles. For apples, I’d try melting shredded cheddar–a small amount so the cheese doesn’t hide the apple flavor. Pears and cheese are great, too. Cheers, Ashley
