Why I Love This Recipe

This recipe comes from a friend of mine, Corinna! Boy were these ever good! Tasted like apple pie without the crust! Brought back many memories of my late aunt's apple pie! I wish I would of had some whip cream or vanilla ice cream to top these with! What you see sprinkled on the apples is vanilla sugar & cinnamon from a spice grinder that I bought at Trader Joe's and it is awesome! This is my first time making fried apples and I can see I'll be making them time and time again!

Ingredients You'll Need

3 tablespoons butter
3 medium tart apples, unpeeled, cored, quartered, and sliced (I used Golden Delicious)
1/3 cup sugar
2 to 3 tablespoons sugar
cinnamon for dusting (optional)


Melt butter in a medium heavy skillet over medium heat. Add apples to a cast iron skillet; cover and cook for 5 minutes, or until apples are juicy.

Turn and sprinkle with 1/3 cup sugar. Reduce heat to low. Cover and cook for about 5 minutes longer. Uncover and cook 2 to 3 minutes longer, or until sugar is absorbed and apples are lightly browned on bottom.

Remove from heat and sprinkle with a few more tablespoons of sugar, depending on tartness of apples. Dust with cinnamon, if you like.

Serve hot as a side dish to ham or pork meal, or with breakfast.
