Fried Apples

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:

  1. Melt butter over medium-low heat in a large skillet
  2. Add apples (peeled and sliced) and all other ingredients into the skillet
  3. Cook apples uncovered for 8-10 minutes
  4. 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:

You’ll Need (for the pie):

  • 2 Pillsbury pie crusts.
  • 2 apples.
  • 1/34 cup of sugar (optional).
  • ¼ tsp of cinnamon (optional).

You’ll Need (for the icing):

  • 1 tsp of softened butter.
  • 1 cup of powdered sugar.
  • ½ tsp of vanilla.
  • 1-3 tbsps of milk.


Place the peeled and chopped apples in a pot and cook on very low heat and mash them up.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out the pie crust and cut out about 7 circles ( I used a 3 inch cookie cutter).
Put a scant tsp of the cooked apples in the middle then wet all the way around the pie with cold water using your fingers. Fold the round over and crimp the edges with a fork. Make a slit in the top.
In a skillet, heat a little oil then cook the little pies for 2 to 3 minutes on each side.
Place on wire rack with paper towels to take off the excess oil.
Prepare the icing and glaze the warm pies.
