I love fried apples! I mean seriously hearts and flowers love them!
We have been known to stop at any Cracker Barrel we find during our travels just to enjoy a hot bowl of their fried apples. Sadly we do not have a Cracker Barrel here in Spokane. The closest one is in Missoula Montana about a 3 hour drive away. Don’t get me wrong I have made the drive to Missoula just to enjoy a glorious bowl of fried apples but that doesn’t happen very often.
So instead now I made a big batch of this Crock Pot Fried Apple Recipe and LOVE IT!
I have to confess that a lot of times I make this while John is at work so I can sneak a bowl or two for myself before he gets home. Don’t worry he gets more than enough of this when he gets home. But I do love curling up on the couch with a hot bowl of fried apples and watching a reality tv show. It is pure decadence!
