My nana used to make this all the time when I was young, She never used sugar or cinnamon as they were expensive and hard to come by during the depression so she made them without and then never put it in later years! Check out her recipe.
How to Make Fried Apples:
- Melt butter over medium-low heat in a large skillet
- Add apples (peeled and sliced) and all other ingredients into the skillet
- Cook apples uncovered for 8-10 minutes
- Use a spatula to gently flip the apples every couple of minutes
And that’s it! The fried apples will come out tender but not mushy. They’ll still have a bite, that slightly crispy apple texture, but much softer. Sweet, simple, and delicious!
This fried apples recipe is sure to please! So sweet, so simple, and so comforting. This is the perfect recipe to make this autumn to use up those fresh apples. Another easy fall recipe that is absolutely irresistible!
To Make this Recipe You’Il Need the following ingredients:
8 ounces dried apples or dried peaches
1 cup water
1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon butter
1 tsp. cinnamon or apple pie spice
1 can jumbo refrigerated flaky biscuits
vegetable oil, for frying
Combine apples and water in saucepan; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 30 minutes or until tender. Remove from heat and let cool, mashing slightly if pieces are large. Stir in sugar and butter; set mixture aside.
If using fresh apples: For the filling: Add 2 TBS butter to a large saute pan and melt. Add 4 peeled, cored and chopped apples, sugar, cinnamon, and 1 tsp lemon juice and cook over medium heat until the apples are soft, about 15 minutes. Remove from the heat, mash slightly and cool.)
Roll each biscuit into a 5-inch circle on a lightly floured surface. Place about 1 tablespoon apple mixture on half of each biscuit circle. To seal pies, dip fingers in water and moisten edges of circles. Fold in half, making sure edges are even. Using a fork dipped in flour, press edges firmly together to seal.
Pour oil to a depth of 1/2 inch into a heavy skillet, or use deep fryer. Fry pies in hot oil (370°) over medium-high heat until golden, turning once. Don’t rush it because you want to make sure the biscuit is cooked completely through.
Drain well on paper towels.
Makes 10 pies.
