Mela Cotta

Mela cotta translates to cooked apples, but its so much more.  It's like apple pie filling with out the guilt.  It's a delicious dessert you can make in just a few simple steps.  This is a dessert I often make for my children after dinner that's quick and healthy and only has 2 or 3 ingredients.

You'll need:

3 golden delicious apples
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon butter (optional)
1/4 cup water

Peel, core and cut your apples

Place in a small pot and add cinnamon and water

Cover and cook on medium low heat for 15 minutes or till apples are soft
Uncover and cook for 2 or 3 more minutes to allow the juices to condense a bit and concentrate

Apples will be VERY HOT, so allow to cool a bit before serving

Serve alone or with ice cream, MMMMMMMMMMMM

I impress my kids by showing them that you can eat an entire apple; skin, seeds, core and all... but this way is much better :)
