Nothing says fall quite like Cracker Barrel Cinnamon Apples. But how many of us have the time or money to go out and eat them all the time? For this reason, a copycat version was created. Now maybe you’re asking yourself if the homemade version tastes as good as the real thing. The answer? No….it tastes WAY better if for no other reason than you know exactly what is going in it.
Have you always thought Cracker Barrel could add more cinnamon to their apples, well now you have the ability to use as much cinnamon as you want? Need to cut back on the sugar? Now you can make a classic dessert low sugar (or even sugar-free). Oh the possibilities are endless! And no matter what you do, once you make these cinnamon apples, your house will be filled what the sweet scent of fall.
