I love the Spiced Apples they have at Cracker Barrel. There for I hated that they served with the skins and they were so mushy.
So made my own recipe this morning.
Husband and Daughter loved them!

Prep:

15 Min

Cook:

25 Min

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

4 large
sweet tango apples, or your choice of firm apple
1 small
lemon
1/2 c
c&h sugar
1 1/2 Tbsp
cinnamon pure ground

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Clean four large apples, dry, then core with
Apple Corer and or Hand Held Apple Wedger.
2
Once Apples are Cored and Peeled, put in small bowl.
Matter of preference if you leave peel on or remove. To me they are more tender without the peel.
3
Roll Fresh Lemon and cut in half, squeeze the lemon over the apples that you have in the small bowl.
Gently Toss (keeps them from turning brown) adds a little tang to the Apples.
4
Mix 1/2 cup C&H Sugar with 1 Tablespoon Ground Cinnamon.

Sprinkle over the Apples in you Bowl.
5
On top of Stove, heat iron skillet at a medium heat.
Now take the bowl full of apples and add to pan.
They will sizzle slightly,
DO NOT COOK ON A HIGH HEAT!
For the First 8 minutes cover the apples in the pan with a lid.
6
After Apples have steamed for 8 minutes, remove lid.
Continue cooking (uncovered) until apples are tender when pierced with a form approximately another 8-10 minutes.
7
When Apples are cooked there will be a lot of juice. this will make them mushy. So take pan and strain apples, put in bowl to rest.
You may serve them after they have rested 5 minutes.
8
If you desire a thicker sauce, you may use the remainder of the drippings and cook down to make a simple syrup. By adding 1/4 cup sugar watching to make sure it does not burn. Pour over already cooked apples.
This is a personal choice.
9
Serve with a great Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner.
They are wonderful by them selves.
