It's a bit hard to make applesauce look appealing in a picture, but I promise this is delicious. It's really quick too! This is a great way to use up apples that are getting past their prime. Serve the applesauce warm with a bit of whipped cream to make a fairly healthy dessert, or plain for breakfast.

4 Granny Smith apples
1/2 cup water
2-4 Tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Whipped cream (if desired)
Cut apples into wedges. Remove seeds and peels. Chop into pieces.
Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan. Cover and cook over medium heat for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Mash with a potato masher, fork, or electric mixer immediately.
