Active Time:

Total Time:

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 3 pounds apples (about 8 medium), such as Cortland, Jonathan, McIntosh, Northern Spy or Gravenstein, peeled, cored and sliced (10 cups)
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preparation

  1. Heat oil and butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add apples (the pan will seem quite full, but the apples will cook down considerably) and cook, stirring from time to time, for 5 minutes.
  2. Add maple syrup and cinnamon; cook, stirring or shaking the pan from time to time, until the apples are tender and the filling has thickened, about 10 minutes longer. Stir in vanilla.
