Super Simple Cinnamon Apples

We have a bunch of chocolatey stuff in the house right now (I just made 5lbs of Great Grandma Ida's fudge last week), but I was craving something different for dessert.  Cinnamon apples to the rescue!  These are a snap to make, and require only a few basic ingredients.  They'd be yummy over ice cream, or with pancakes, but I like to eat them just as they are.

1 to 2 T unsalted butter
1 large apple, peeled, cored, and sliced
2 T brown sugar
a pinch of cinnamon to taste

Melt butter in a small skillet over medium-low heat.  Toss in apple slices, and cook until slightly softened (3 to 5 minutes or so).  Mix in brown sugar and cinnamon, and raise heat slightly.  Cook for 5 to 7 more minutes, stirring occasionally.  Serve and sprinkle with more cinnamon if desired.
