Southern Fried Apples

Here's the dessert that I made for the Gooseberry Patch Cookbook Preview Party that I hosted a few weeks ago.

Imagine it served with ice cream on top! Mmm...mmm...yummy! Here's the recipe:

Southern Fried Apples

1/4 cup shortening (I used butter)
6 tart apples, cored, peeled and sliced
1 tsp. lemon juice
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1/8 tsp. salt
Garnish: apple pie spice (I sprinkled some cinnamon and nutmeg on top)

Melt shortening (or butter) in a skillet over medium heat. Add apples evenly in a single layer (mine aren't very singular!). Sprinkle with lemon juice, brown sugar and salt. Cover; cook over low heat for 15 minutes, until apples are tender and juicy. Sprinkle with spice and serve warm (with ice cream!!). Serves about 6. (I doubled this recipe for the ladies at the party.)
