Cracker Barrel at Home: Fried Apples and Triangle Peg Board Games

Author Nicole Burkholder


  • 4 large Granny Smith apples peeled, cored and sliced
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2-3 tbsp lemon juice one fresh lemon or bottled lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 tsp corn starch


  • Melt the stick of butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the apple slices and lemon juice (try to get a little lemon juice on each slice) and cook for 2-3 minutes.
  • Stir in both sugars and cook for another 5-8 minutes, depending on how thick your slices are. You want the apples soft, but not mushy.
  • In a small bowl, combine the water and corn starch. Add into the apple mixture and cook for 1-2 minutes to allow the sauce to thicken.
  • Serve warm (it is amazing with a little vanilla ice cream!)
