Brown Sugar Cinnamon Skillet Apples Recipe



I got it in my head recently that I was going to make homemade applesauce.  I'm not really sure why, I guess it seemed like the seasonally appropriate thing to do, even though only one of my kids really loves the stuff.  But then while we were in Nashville last week I ordered Fried Apples at the Cracker Barrel and thought, forget applesauce.  Fried Apples is where it's at. So, as soon as we got back into the kitchen, Josie and I toiled away at the stove (ok, we threw the ingredients into a pot) and made the most deliciously decadently yummy Brown Sugar Cinnamon Skillet Apples you ever did try.

I keep sneaking into the fridge and stealing bites from the jar.  They're like apple pie filling but better. Perfect to serve as a side to pork chops, over ice cream, or just as a midnight snack.  They also make a wonderful gift when put into a pretty mason jar!

UPDATE - I made these insanely yummy Brown Sugar Cream Cheese Apple Crescents with them!  SO GOOD!!!



----------


Brown Sugar Cinnamon Skillet Apples, Ingredients:

  • 3 pounds apples, peeled/cored/quartered
  • 1 stick butter (use clarified butter if dairy free)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 tablespoon vanilla
  • optional: 1 - 2 teaspoons corn starch to thicken sauce if using as a syrup




Brown Sugar Cinnamon Skillet Apples, Directions:

  1. In a large pot or skillet, heat butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla, over medium/low heat until ingredients are incorporated.
  2. Add apples and toss gently until everything is coated in the sugar sauce.
  3. Cover and continue cooking over medium/low heat for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Remove from heat and serve or can. (Feel free to pack the apples and sauce separately if you want to use the liquid as a pancake or breakfast syrup.  If you want to thicken, remove the apples and slowly stir in corn starch, heating for an additional 3 - 5 minutes.  You'll want to serve the sauce warm as the butter may separate some in the refrigerator).
  5. ENJOY!

We picked up our recipe ingredients on a quick trip to Walmart and while we were there also grabbed some American Home™ by Yankee Candle® brand tumblers and fresh flowers to assemble a pretty Fall inspired gift basket.  I found them right at the front of housewares and I chose Apple Cinnamon Cider, Pumpkin Apple Harvest, and Sweet & Salty Caramel fragrances because they remind me that even though it's still 90 degrees in Florida, Fall is happening!

  3. Thank you so much for this recipe! I used to buy these back in the 60's - 70's. Went organic and kind of forgot about them. Mostly buy the organic in the tube like containers from Costco now, but have always missed what was labeled Escalloped Apples back then. Will cut the pieces smaller for Children this Christmas... put in the smallest euro style jam jars for with a little wooden spoon attached and include in a basket for 4... ages 2-15, along with cheese and crackers. Our families will not be traveling this year, so much loved neighbors have invited us to share a bit of their Christmas. I think these, along with a quart for 'Mom' with your recipe for those stuffed rolls will be perfect. A new fan.
