Fried Apples | Delish D'Lites

Butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, vanilla and apples…does it get any better? Fried apples are soul-soothing, comfort food that warms you from the the inside out.  I’ve loved them since I tried them at my local Cracker Barrel, so I decided to recreate them at home.  This recipe comes together so quickly, it’s even a great dessert option when you’re in a pinch.  This recipe double and triples easily, so make extra!  One taste, and you’ll understand why.

ingredients

2 large Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced into wedges
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 pinch of salt
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 pinch of nutmeg

directions

Melt the butter on medium heat in a cast iron skillet or saute pan.  Add in the sliced apples, sugar and salt.  The butter and sugar will create a delicious, sticky glaze to coat the apples.

Cook the apples over medium heat for 10 minutes, until they begin to soften, but aren’t mushy.

Add in the cinnamon, nutmeg , vanilla extract and lemon juice.  Cook for another 30 seconds, then remove from the heat.

Serve warm, these would be absolutely sinful with some vanilla ice cream.

  1. They are delicious! Now take those apples and place them in a crescent roll!! Put them in a casserole dish and pour remaining apples and syrup over the top and bake!
