Mock Cracker-Barrel Fried Apples


I’ve always loved Cracker-Barrel’s fried apples and this is the closest I’ve ever tasted to their recipe.  The recipe came from an old recipe box I bought at an estate sale. It was on a newspaper clipping, that has Dec 2000 written on it.  The clipping says the recipe was from Cathey Heddlesten.  Since it was purchased in Oklahoma, I assume that’s where it came from.  I hope that you enjoy it, and I encourage you to try it with some good old fashioned vanilla ice cream!


  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 4 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 12 oz apples, canned and sliced
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon


Melt the butter in a large skillet.  Add the other ingredients. Heat slowly until the apples are tender and the sauce has thickened. Serve warm.

I’d love to hear your thoughts, comments and any modifications you find delicious!



Hi all! My name is Kaycee. I am now learning to navigate life as a single woman. Turns out, it's not all about husband and children. Who knew? So, I'm on a journey of self discovery. I have 5 children, 3 of which are married, 5 2 are in Heaven (my beautiful baby Acadia Reign and my Diva Princess Tara Elizabeth), and 7 grandchildren! Plus, a ton of fabulous nieces and nephews! My educational background is in Psychology and Child Development but my heart is in ministry, crafts, fun, reviews and my website, My Crafty Zoo. Or at least it was, now I'm learning who I really am, beneath all of the busy family life. It's an adventure to be sure. I look forward to continuing to share my life through word and pictures with you and love hearing your feedback! Thank you for taking the time to read and allowing me to share! I look forward to reading your comments!
