Country Style Fried Apples


  • 2 Pounds HoneyCrisp Apples, or apples of choice 

  • ⅓ Cup Light Brown Sugar, or to taste

  • ⅓ Cup White Sugar, or to taste

  • 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon, or to taste

  • Pinch of Ground Nutmeg

  • Pinch of Ground All-Spice 

  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

  • ¼ Cup Unsalted Butter, ½ Stick

Cornstarch Slurry

  • 4 Teaspoons Cornstarch

  • 4 Teaspoons Water

Recommended Equipment

  • Large Bowl

  • 12-inch Skillet

  • Silicone Spatula


  • The amount of sugar you use will depend on your personal taste preference and your choice of apples.


1. Clean, peel, and slice apples into desired shapes. Then, add the apples to a bowl and toss the apples in fresh squeezed lemon juice.

2. In a large skillet on medium heat, add in butter. Once the butter is melted, add in apples.

3. Next, add in brown sugar, white sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, all-spice and nutmeg, then mix in with apples. 

4. Bring to a simmer. Once at a simmer, slightly reduce heat to low-medium, periodically stir, and let simmer on low for about 15-20 minutes or until the apples softened and reached desired tenderness. The sauce in the skillet should begin to reduce and start to have a syrup-like consistency.

5. Combine cornstarch and cold water (cornstarch slurry) in a cup, then add into the skillet. Continuously stir until well combined and the mixture thickens.

6. Remove skillet from heat and serve. Enjoy!
