Cracker Barrel-style Fried Apples

This recipe is from another site and is as close as I have seen to Cracker Barrel. The recipe says you can freeze the cooked apples. I have never done this as there is never any left.

2 cups apple juice , plus
1/2 cup apple juice
4 large golden delicious apples, cored , with peel on ,cut 1/2 inch wedges
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon apple pie spice
1/4 cup sugar

1 In a medium skillet, combine the 2 cups apple juice and sliced apples.
2 Simmer gently until apples are fork tender but not mushy, turning apples frequently.
3 Remove apples from juice using a slotted spoon and place in an oven safe dish.
4 In a blender, combine the remaining 1/2 cup apple juice, cornstarch, apple pie spice and sugar.
5 Blend a few seconds until smooth.
6 Whisk mixture into hot apple juice in skillet and cook, stirring constantly on medium high heat until it bubbles and becomes thickened and smooth.
7 Pour thickened mixture over apples and serve.

Please note the cooking time is an approximate.
