Cracker Barrel's "Fried" Apples

If you love Cracker Barrel's "Fried" Apples, like I do, here is a recipe I tweaked a bit and they came out great.


  • 2 cups apple juice
  • 4 large golden delicious apples, cut into eights (no need to peel)
  • 1/2 cup apple juice
  • 3 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 4 Tbsp. sugar


Combine 2 cups juice and apples in a skillet. Simmer gently turning apples carefully until tender, checking with a fork. Remove from apples from skillet and set aside. In a jar put 1/2 cup apple juice and cornstarch, cinnamon and sugar. Put the lid on and shake well (I do this over the sink). Stir into hot juices in skillet and cook on medium heat until bubbly and thickened.

These are a great side dish. Also good with vanilla ice cream, over oatmeal or pancakes, or waffles for breakfast.
