Cinnamon caramel apple latte

“Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the Earth seeking the successive autumns.”

George Eliot

I embrace everything about the autumn — crisp falling leaves, tart apples coated in caramel sauce, and cinnamon-dusted treats. I have combined my favorite autumn tastes into a beautiful fall-flavored latte. Best of all it is as easy to prepare as it is delicious. Enjoy!

Cinnamon apple syrup

Core, peel, and pit 2 apples. Combine the apples, 3 cinnamon sticks, 1/2 cup sugar, and 1/2 cup water in a small saucepan. Stir until the sugar is dissolved. Let the contents come to a boil and continue to heat on a high flame for 5 minutes. Reduce the flame to low and allow the syrup to simmer for an additional 10 – 15 minutes (until the syrup has thickened). Allow the syrup to cool slightly and strain. If you are not using all your syrup, refrigerate the remainder in an airtight container.
