My gang really enjoyed the fried apples. There plates were empty in a few minutes. I’m going to give Cracker Barrel Fried apple five stars. Jan

I used apple cider as recommended in the reviews and I think this turned out pretty good. I thought it could use a little more flavor but the apples I bought were alittle bland so maybe that was all. I served it as a side but I think it would go better on ice cream.

They also use bacon drippings in it ;) They have like a little container full of bacon drippings, they use it n everything! (exaggerated obviously, haha)But me, being a none pork eater, I use a little canola oil and just a few drops of liquid smoke :D It gives it that little extra kick! They also use it in the glazed carrots to :)

I used some of the recipe. I cooked granny smith apples in the juice and add a TLBS of butter. I didn't have cornstarch so used flour, sugar, and cinnamon and add another table spoon of butter when adding the mixture to the juice. They turned out reallllllly good, my family was pleased.

Just used this recipe tonight and it was great! I used the apple cider like Ms Cracker Barrel suggested and I used just cinnamon instead of apple pie spice. I recommend this recipe to everyone!

this was very good---but i would suggest peeling the apples,and a little more pie spice---i used spiced cider---and served warm with a sccop of vanila ice crem on top--it was very good

Ms Cracker Barrel

There is one ingredient that you have on there that is not right. They use Apple Cider not Apple Juice. I know this because I work there.

This recipe was A++! I didn't have the apple pie spice, so I made it without it. It still came out just like Cracker Barrel's. My whole family loved it!
