Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
I use granny smith apples because I love the tart and sweet combo. You can use any apple you prefer, but if it's a sweet apple know that it will make the dessert much sweeter (like Red Delicious apples) than it already is. Gala, Fuji, or Honeycrisp are other good apples to use for this.
Be sure to cut the apples in small, thin pieces. If the apples are too large of chunks then they won't get tender and cook in that amount of time.
