Fried Apples - Grandma Carr's Recipe

Kathie Carr


This recipe is actually skillet cooked, not fried, but we always called it fried.

Back in the 1950's, in the fall, there were lots of apples on the farm and Grandma made this recipe. It is so good! Of course, brown sugar, butter, cinnamon, and apples.... How can you lose?

Cracker Barrel restaurants serve a version of this dish and its very popular there.
