I have prepared fried apples nearly the same way for many years, but I did try out your recipe to have it your way. The came out perfectly. Not overly sweet, as I have seen some people do (and I have talked under my breath at them), and the apples still had a firmness to them that didn't leave them in an "applesauce-like" state. Sometimes I add a pinch of grated nutmeg over mine when the mood strikes, along with the cinnamon. My daughter was asking just in the past few days when we were having fried apples. I think she quite approves of yours, also. Thanks, Inez, for a great recipe!

This is a GREAT dish, Inez!! I only had some red apples on hand, but they worked out fine. Excellent flavors!! We served these as "topping" over vanilla ice cream. Ohhh the contrast of the warm sweet cinnamony apples and the cold creamy vanilla ice cream was just heaven!!!
