1 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter buds, reconstituted
1 tbsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. lemon juice

Steps

1. Pour contens of 2 #10 cans of apples per 2 1/2-in. steam table pans.

2. Add sugar, lemon juice, butter buds and cinnamon. Stir well.

3. Bake at 325°F for approximately 45 to 50 mins. Stir once during cooking process.

4. Portion with #8 scoop for 1/2 cup serving. Note: Make a day ahead of serving if possible to allow flavors to absorb into the apples.
