DIY Fried Apples (Cracker Barrel Version)

Stewed apples, fried apples, do I need to say more? Perhaps the only 100 % kid loving recipe. My kiddos think it’s dessert at breakfast. I usually double this recipe and serve it as a side (with my substitute version) at breakfast. Whatever is left over, I run it through a food processor or mash up with a potato masher. It then goes into snack, depending on how much is left. It works great in breakfast muffins, mini apple pie pockets, in a pancake batter in the electric mini donate maker, glazed turnovers for a special occasion, or just as a topping.

~With an iron skillet or fry pan, warm 3 Tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Cut into wedges and cored, slice and add 4 medium apples (Golden delicious works the best.)

~Add 1/4 Cup sugar, 2 Tablespoons of dark brown sugar, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, and 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg. Stir until everything is evenly coated and warm. Cover and cook for about 12 minutes or until the apples are soft. Transfer to the serving dish and cover to keep warm.

~In a cup, beat 1/2 Cup of apple cider and 1 Tablespoon of corn starch. Over medium high heat whisk in the same skillet as previous. Stir constantly to blend and thicken aft 1 minute of simmering. Pour mixture over the apples and serve. (This recipe is lovely on vanilla ice cream as well!)

Happy homemaking! Enjoy!!!
