    PaulaG's Note:

    I grew up eating fried apples and then as an adult I discovered Cracker Barrel and their fried apples. This recipe is from another site and is as close as I have seen to Cracker Barrel. The recipe says you can freeze the cooked apples. I have never done this as there is never any left.

      As a former Cracker Barrel employee, I can say these are close to the real thing: good, but it needs some tweaking. I think the CB are too sweet, anyhow. We doublesd the apples, used half the sugar, and only 1.5 Tablespoons of cornstarch. It came out very thick, and just the right hint of sweetness. Great with a pork roast, great with pancakes!

      I cooked the apples for 20 minutes.For the spice mix I used 1 teaspoon cinnamon,1/2 nutmeg grated, and 1/2 teaspoon cardamom. I use my vanilla sugar. Flavored Sugars Flavored Sugar or Splenda. These apples would be great on anything from ice cream to a pork roast.

      I added a couple tablespoons of butter and a pinch of salt. They were absolutely delicious! Even my picky three year old loved them!
