Thanks to Julie for giving me this recipe years ago. It's one of my favorites. It's easy, made in the microwave, smells divine, and you can use either apples or pears. This sauce is chunky and is good by itself or served with just about anything.
6 cups tart baking apples, peeled, cored and sliced
1/2 cup water
1/4 - 1/2 cup white or brown sugar
1/4 - 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
Place apples in a 1 quart casserole. Pour water over apples (use less if you like a thick sauce). Combine sugar and cinnamon, sprinkle over apples and stir to combine ingredients. Cover and microwave on high 7-10 minutes or until apples are tender. Mash apples to desired consistency and serve warm or cool.
