Cinnamon Bun English Muffins with Apple Spiced Cream
2 Thomas’s Cinnamon Bun English Muffins, split and toasted
1/4 cup butter
2 large apples, peeled and diced
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup apple juice
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon, divided
1/2 tsp nutmeg, divided
1/4 inch ground cardamom
1/4 tsp ground ginger

In a large non-stick skillet, melt the butter over medium high heat. Add the apples, brown sugar, apple juice, 1 tsp cinnamon and 1/4 tsp nutmeg and cook, stirring, until sugar has dissolved and apples have softened and become glazed (about 4-6 minutes). Serve over the top of English muffins.
Fold in the remaining cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom and ginger into the fresh whipped cream. Serve over the top of the apples.
