Apricot Apple Compote

"You won't have to skip dessert when this comforting compote is on the menu. 'I asked a friend of mine how she could eat dessert and still stay thin, and she handed me this recipe,' shares Suzan Wiener of Spring Hill, Florida. A touch of cinnamon and lemon accents the fruit flavor...and the dish is a snap to make."
