Peel and slice the apples.
Put in a microwave bowl, add a little water, sprinkle on cinnamon/sugar and cook at 5 min. After they get out, sprinkle a tad of brown sugar on top. Plus, it makes your house smell delectable.
Take it one step further and if you want applesauce pour the whole cooked bowlful into the blender and blend up until you have the texture you want.
