Country Store Fried Apples

These are the YUMMIEST apples. They are a dead-ringer for Cracker Barrel's cinnamon apples. They are great as a side dish and over waffles and pancakes, but I REALLY love them over ice cream. They're just awesome.

Here is the recipe, from an old copy of the KC Star:

5 to 6 cups of firm tart apples such as American Cameo or Granny Smith
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
2 tablespoons of corn starch
1/2 cup apple cider

Peel, core and slice apples into medium to thick slices. Places apples, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in slow cooker. Dissolve corn starch in apple cider and blend well. Pour over apples and stir to blend. Cover and cook for 5-6 hours. Stir halfway through cooking.


  1. Delicious!! I haven't tried fried apples over ice cream yet... oh my!

  2. Oh this is something I must try. They look better than Cracker Barrel's apples. What a great recipe. I should be having apples off the tree soon if the birds don't get them first!!!

  3. We like fried apples. I generally use golden delicious apples for this....I need to make them SOON!!

  4. Wow this looks really amazing!! I can't wait to try it.

    We would love if you would come by our blog and share this recipe and any other apple recipes with our readers for Sharing Sundays.


  5. You know, my crockpot cooks super hot for a slow cooker. I stick with low for just about everything. Thanks for asking!
