Sauteed Apples with Ice Cream

Sautéed Apples with Ice Cream

I love almost everything made from apples. They are one of my favorite fruits by far. And right now, as the weather is starting to cool off and Fall is approaching, apples are going to be in season and tasting better than ever. And nothing is better than apples and ice cream!

Justin doesn’t usually like things that are hot and cold at the same time like in this recipe, but he loved this dessert. The apples have just the right amount of crispness, while still being nice and soft. It’s kind of like apple pie but without all the extra calories from the crust.

We had fun making our Sauteed Apples with Ice Cream. I thought it would be more difficult, but the longest part was actually getting the apples sliced up.

Years ago, we got this apple slicer that helps speed the process up a lot. I use the apple slicer to cut the apples into wedges, then cut the peels off with a knife, and cut the wedges into smaller slices.

Step by Step

In a large skillet, melt the butter, then add the apples to the pan. Sauté these for about 7-8 minutes, or until the apples are soft. Then add in the brown sugar and cinnamon, cooking for a few more minutes.

Once the apples are cooked, scoop them out into a bowl and add a scoop (or two) of ice cream on top. Then enjoy!

    So warm and comforting. Love canning my own spiced apples every autumn after apple picking with my kids in the local mountains.

  2. Warm apple desserts are SERIOUSLY at the top of my dessert favorites list. There is just something about them that soothes and warms the soul. I am definitely going to be trying this one!

  3. My daughter has wanted a dessert exactly like this for the holidays. I might try it with a different ice cream. But the apples she loves. She’ll eat that kind of apple out of a pie, avoiding the crust altogether. I will try this out in a couple weeks.
