Apples Fries with Cinnamon

Getting reviews...
When autumn arrives, the farmers' markets are brimming with apples of every variety. With so many new varieties to try ever year, we're continually creating new recipes to make use of our bushels. When apples are cooked to a soft texture, a little sprinkle of cinnamon transforms them into the perfect simple dessert. Apple fries are another fun way to enjoy apples when you have an abundance. The soft texture of the sweet apple and cinnamon fragrance make for a simple way to enjoy apples as a dessert.
