The slow cooker does all the work for this yummy Copycat Cracker Barrel Fried Apples Recipe.
Fried Apples Recipe
Now that fall is finally on its way I'm ready for ALL the apple things. One of our family favorites is this Fried Apples Recipe.
We've been making this one a really long time and it really does taste like the fried apples at Cracker Barrel. In fact, I just noticed that I originally published this recipe way back in 2010. Thankfully my photography skills have improved a wee bit since then. 🙂
So, I'm giving this recipe a little facelift today and I hope you'll make this one for your bunch soon.
Ingredients for fried apples:
- apples – gala, green, or honeycrisp work best
- brown sugar
- ground cinnamon
- melted butter
- lemon juice
- vanilla extract
MENU TIP: This fried apples recipe is from our sides menu planning made easy set!
How to make fried apples in the crockpot:
Peel and slice apples and add to slow cooker. I have an apple/peeler/slicer similar to this one and it makes slicing apples fast and fun! I highly recommend one if you enjoy apple recipes like this one.
Toss in some cornstarch, and stir into the apples until well coated.
Stir in sugars, cinnamon, butter, lemon juice and vanilla.
Cover, and cook on high 2 hours.
Once done, stir well and serve.
If you want to serve these as a dessert I highly recommend topping with some vanilla ice cream! 🙂

I to have been looking for a fried apple recipe like they make at Cracker Barrel. This one looks great, but do I have to use cornstarch to thicken it?
