If you’ve ever had fried apples, then you know how sinfully delicious they taste. If you haven’t, fall is the perfect time to cook these beauties up! They are basically apple wedges pan fried with cinnamon & sugar. The best part is, they’re surprisingly easy to make. These Fireball Glazed Fried Apples are the perfect dessert! It’s a classic down home treat and the Fireball Whisky adds an understated elegance.
I love cooking with alcohol. I love that the actual alcohol content cooks out, yet it leaves such great depths of flavor. I’ve been experimenting with Fireball Whisky a lot lately. The simple cinnamon undertones it has going on are perfect! So far I’ve been able to pair it successfully with Sweet & Savory dishes.
This is one of my favorites because not only is it simple enough for everyday, it’s also one of those desserts that can easily impress your friends and family!
Fireball Glazed Fried Apples
Sometimes when you go to the grocery store it can be overwhelming deciding on an apple. Generally it feels like there are an abundance of apple varieties and they all look alike! One of my favorite apples is the Gala. I love the way it taste, that it tends to be larger, and that it’s not overly priced. You can use any apple you’d like in this recipe. In fact, Granny Smith tends to be a popular choice for fried apples because they stay a lot firmer. But, again it’s 100% up to your discretion.
Peel and core about 3-4 apples. Cut them into wedges. Set aside. In a sautee` pan add the butter and heat on medium. As soon as it starts melting add the brown sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon. Mix well. Pour your Fireball directly into the pan. Cook for about 2 minutes. Add the apples, tossing them in the sauce and evenly coating them.
Turn the heat up to high. Occasionally stirring. Cook on high for about 5-7 minutes. You don’t want it to burn, but you want the apples to brown and simultaneously the temperature the sauce reaches needs to be high enough to cook the alcohol content out.
Once browned, turn the heat down and let the apples simmer for an additional 5-7 minutes. Remove from heat.
Top the apples with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream and drizzle with Salted Caramel. Serve promptly!

This looks amazing! Even though I think Fireball is terrible for drinking, I never thought of using it to glaze apples or other fruits – what a wonderful idea! thanks for sharing!
