I love going to restaurants and eating Fried Apples. Tangy and sweet, it’s like eating dessert as a side dish. I love cooking apples in the fall and I recently wondered what it would take to be able to make Fried Apples at home. I did a little research, found a lot of ideas, and then created my own recipe for delicious Fried Apples. The result was fantastic. My family gobbled up the Fried Apples and even scraped the pan of the caramel sauce in the bottom. I’d have to say that they were a hit.
Choosing Apples for Fried Apples
I chose a simple Granny Smith apple to make my batch of Fried Apples. They are a good, crisp, firm apple that works wonderfully when cooked as they hold their shape. Granny Smith apples have the perfect flavor for Fried Apples making them my favorite choice. If you can’t find Granny Smith, try using another crisp and slightly sour apple that is good for cooking. Grocery stores are getting better about labeling apples as cooking or eating apples and if you happen to have an orchard in your area, the owner will surely know which varieties are best.
Fried Apples Become a Great Mock Pie Dessert
If you’d like to change up your Fried Apples, try sprinkling them with crushed Nilla wafers cookies. It instantly transforms Fried Apples into a beautiful mock pie that’s simple to get to the table and takes mere minutes for a warm delicious dessert. You can also top with whipped cream or serve with a sharp cheddar cheese for a fabulous dessert.
4 Granny Smith apples, cored and sliced
3 T butter
⅓ C brown sugar
½ t ground cinnamon
Place the apples and half the butter in a saute pan and heat over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes, until the apples are starting to soften.
Add the rest of the butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Stir to coat and continue to saute until a soft caramel forms, about 3 to 5 minutes.
Skip the restaurant and make Fried Apples at home in minutes!
