  3. Cover and cook stirring occasionally for 4-6 minutes or until very slightly softened.
  4. In a small dish combine cornstarch and 2 tablespoons water. Add to the pan while stirring and continue to cook until apples are soft (not mushy) and filling is thickened.

Recipe Notes

Cut apples into 1/2-inch cubes or 1/4-inch slices.

Different varieties of apples may need less (or more) cooking time. Cook just until tender crisp checking the apples with a fork. 

Some apples are juicier than others. If you would like your filling thicker, combine 1 tablespoon cornstarch with 1 tablespoon water. Add a little at a time while the mixture is boiling until you reach desired consistency.
