Melt the butter and cinnamon over medium heat. Add apples, sugar and 3 tablespoons water.

Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, 4 to 6 minutes or until slightly tender.

Combine cornstarch and water in a small dish. Add to the pan, stirring, and continue cooking until the apples are soft (do not puree) and the filling has thickened. Whisk for 1 minute. Let cool.
