Copycat Cracker Barrel Fried Apples

We love cracker barrel's apples. There is a place back home that also makes apples like this, they call them skillet apples.  Either way, they are so yummy and this recipe is an easy way to make them at home.  Maybe not the most healthy way but not nearly as unhealthy as I thought they would be.  This recipe is from Macaroni and Cheesecake.

2 tbsp unsalted butter
4 large apples
2 1/2 cups apple juice (divided)
1 tsp apple pie spice
6 tbsp flour
4 tbsp sugar small
pinch of salt

Cut the apples into 1/2 inch slices.  Melt the butter in a skillet of medium heat. Add in the apples, apple juice and apple pie spice and stir, making sure most of the apples are covered with the juice.  Bring to a simmer and let cook for 10 or 15 minutes or until they are fork tender.  In a small bowl whisk together 1/2 cup of apple juice, flour, sugar and a pinch of salt.   With a slotted spoon remove the apples from the skillet and place in a bowl.  Add the flour mixture to the remaining liquid and whisk together.  Let the mixture heat up and thicken then pour over the apples.  Serve right away.
