You can add this apple pie-inspired toast topping to any breakfast or brunch item, really. However, it’s perfect when warmed up and spooned on top of a hot piece of buttered toast on a weekend morning. You can also use it to fill crepes or top French toast. Easily double or triple to use up as many apples as you can!
Melt butter in a medium-sized saucepan on medium-high heat.
Let the butter come up to a bubble and slightly brown before adding apples, lemon juice, sugar, water, cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg.
Let come up to boil and bubble for a few minutes until the sugar has dissolved and apples are fork-tender.
Stir together ½ tbsp. of cornstarch and water in a small bowl and gently stir into boiling apple mixture.
Let bubble for another minute to let thicken.
Once thickened, take off the heat and let cool slightly before using.
