What is more satisfying than warm apples and cinnamon? It’s like a hug in a bowl. Add an outstanding crumble studded with cinnamon sugar pecans and a huge scoop of vanilla ice cream and you are seriously in Heaven!

Fall is right around the corner my friends, and to me those fall flavors just can’t get here soon enough! Apples, cinnamon, pumpkin, and all those glorious smells! Eeeek, I just can’t wait!

I made this fried apple crumble over the weekend and Jeremy just went nuts for it! He is always a sucker for a classic recipe. Especially desserts. I love to please him but, of course, knowing me I always have to tweak it!

One of Jeremy’s favorite side dishes to get at Cracker Barrel are the fried apples. And, I always thought, “Hey! I can make those!” But not only did I make them, I turned them into an all out fall dessert feast! (I’m a little excited about this one, can’t you tell?)

Ingredients

Fried Apples

  • 4 granny smith apples cored and cut into 4ths, then 3rds
  • 8 Tablespoons 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 1/2 Cup light brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon

Crumble Topping

  • 1/2 Cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 Cup all purpose flour
  • 2 Tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1/4 Cup chopped pecans I used my cinnamon sugar roasted pecans
  • dash of salt

Instructions

Fried Apples

  • Place butter into a large sauce pan over medium heat. Melt butter, add in the brown sugar and cinnamon, stir to combine. Add in the apples, coat in the butter mixture and let cook, stirring occasionally until the apples are just fork tender, about 10 minutes. Set aside.

Crumble Topping

  • Place flour and sugar in a medium sized bowl. Mix to combine. Dice up the butter in small pieces, add to the flour mixture, using your fingers roll the butter into the flour until it forms a small pebble/sand consistency. Add in the chopped pecans and mix to combine.

Fried Apple Crumble

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place apples in an oven safe dish. Top with the crumble. Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown on the top and the apples are bubbly. Let cool slightly, serve with ice cream and more chopped pecans for garnish if desired. Enjoy!

As you can see, I left the skin on these apples. This is totally up to you. It did give the fried apples more texture in the finished dish. If you want more of a soft apple interior, then peel them first. Easy, peasy!
