Apples are in abundance right now, and they are one of my favorite things about Fall.
I thought now is the perfect time to share with you some of my favorite apple recipes.
Apples are one of my favorite fruits to cook with because they are versatile for sweet and savory dishes. They also hold up really well during cooking, and aren't easily mushy or flavorless. I love to experiment with different traditional apple recipes, which is why you see a few variations of applesauce, but I like to move into baked goods and dips as well. My kids love apples, and I know the mention of apples in a dish is a big incentive to them to trying new types of dishes. I also find that apples create very kid friendly recipes, and it is a great way to get the kids involved in cooking.
Enjoy, and I hope you have a delicious apple harvest this fall!
APPLESAUCE CAKE WITH CINNAMON CREAM CHEESE FROSTING: This cake had all the cravable fall flavors- heavy on spice, dense and moist. The creamy spiced frosting and perfect crunch and nutty taste from the walnuts made this a delectable treat. It is a perfect way to use homemade unsweetened applesauce.
APPLE CIDER DIP: This dip uses a syrup to get the intense cider flavor. It all the smells and tastes of an orchard in dip form.
INSTANT POT PUMPKIN CINNAMON APPLESAUCE: This recipe is new this fall, but it combines two of the best fall foods. Pumpkin and apples. This applesauce is full of spice and flavor. It is perfect to sub into recipes that call for applesauce to give a richer flavor.
APPLE SANGRIA: What is fall evening without a cocktail? This drink is dark, filled with spice, sweet, and a little tartness. I am planning to make a batch for the adults on Halloween night.
RUSTIC APPLESAUCE: This applesauce is made with two different types of apples. It is nice and chunky, filled with flavors from cinnamon, vanilla, and a little citrus.
TART APPLE GALETTE WITH CINNAMON CRUMBLE: I went through a period that I made a ton of different galettes, and this was one of them. It is may favorite. Think of a galette as a free form pie!
APPLE STRUDEL MUFFINS: I absolutely love these muffins. The topping is amazing and they are so moist. These are always one of the first things I bake in the fall.
VANILLA BROWN SUGAR APPLESAUCE: Brown sugar adds depth to any applesauce. In fact, I actually prefer it to white granulated sugar because of the caramelized flavors. This applesauce is delicious and perfect for kiddos.
CARAMEL APPLE DIP: This recipe is also new, but has become a favorite. It is so easy and the flavors are spot of of one of my favorite fall treats. This is a crowd pleaser with any group!
