Fried Apples like your mom used to make

My hubby has always talked about his Mom's apples that she served over pancakes or waffles in the morning.  I always thought they were stewed apples with a thick syrupy glaze but I should have know my hubby better.  They are apples cooked in a cast iron skillet with the flavor of cinnamon, not too sweet and not overcooked, but left with a bit of crunch in the center.  
 It only took me 35 years to make these for him!  All it took was a quick phone call to his mom and here they are served on his waffles this morning!!
  And since she called them "Fried Apples" that is exactly what we will call them. 
 Reminder: Mom says, "Use a cast iron skillet to get the best flavor in your Fried Apples"!

  1. I make something similar but am glad to hear that a cast iron skillet is better - will try that next time with your recipe !

  2. Mmmmm! I love to order these when we eat at Cracker Barrel! :) Such a good idea to use them on top of pancakes or waffles!
