Copycat Cracker Barrel Fried Apples

I was looking for a side dish that would go good with the pork tenderloin that we were cooking for dinner over at my mom's house. This recipe that I found for Cracker Barrel's Fried Apples sounded like it would work perfectly. We usually eat applesauce with plain pork, so this is like a classy step up from that... right? Regardless, they tasted amazing together, and if I had made these apples with no one around, I would have topped them with light Cool Whip and ate it all as a pie with no crust!


1/2 stick margarine
1/2 c. Apple Cider
1 Tbs. cornstarch
4 large apples, peeled cored and sliced
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
1/8 tsp. allspice
1/4 c. brown sugar

Melt the butter in a large skillet on low heat. Add the apples, brown sugar and spices. Let cook for about 3-5 minutes until the slices are tender but still slightly firm. Remove the apples and place in your serving dish, leaving the liquid in the pan still. Whisk the apple cider and cornstarch together and add to the pan. Whisk the sauce for about a minute or so until the sauce starts to thicken, and then pour on top of the apples.
