To make cooked cinnamon apples, slice 3 cored apples, and place the apples in a microwave-safe dish with 1/2 cup water, 1/3 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Cover and microwave the apples for five minutes, uncover, and microwave for an additional five minutes or until the apples are tender.
Baked apples with cinnamon is also an option. Core 4 large baking apples, such as Golden Delicious or Jonagold apples, and leave the bottom 1/2 inch of the core to form a hollow center. In a bowl, combine 1/4 cup each raisins, pecans and brown sugar with 1 teaspoon cinnamon.
Mix the ingredients well, pack the core of each apple with the brown sugar mixture, and place a small piece of butter on top of the sugar. Place the apples in a baking pan, and pour 3/4 cup of boiling water into the bottom of the pan. Bake the apples at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 to 45 minutes.
To make sautéed cinnamon apples, melt 3 tablespoons of butter in a skillet on medium-high heat. Add 6 cups cored, sliced Granny Smith apples, and continue cooking until the apples are tender. Stir in 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon. Cook for an additional minute to melt the sugar.
