Apple Time


Have you picked apples yet this year? Our favorite orchard has our favorite apples next weekend -- golden delicious and jonagold. I can't wait. Apples taste so different fresh from the tree -- their grocery store partners pale in comparison.

I thought I'd post some of our favorite apple dishes for you -- get busy peeling and chopping!

Apple Crumble Pie (pictured at the link with a handful of blueberries added, but just go for the apples if it's your first time -- it's perfect)

Bavarian Apple Torte -- a perfect Oktoberfest treat

Apple Betty -- she ain't pretty but she's simple and tasty!

Apple Bread Cake with Raisins
-- grandma and grandpa will love this one!

Easy Apple Pastries -- a simple weeknight dessert, but would also be an awesome weekend breakfast treat!

Carrot Apple Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting
-- did you say cream cheese frosting?

Apple Dumplings
-- hands down, my absolute favorite

Apple Streusel Pizza -- just make an extra crust on Saturday night and have pizza for dessert, too

Upside Down Apple Muffins -- a favorite at our house with breakfast for dinner

Pumpkin Harvest Bread
-- the best fall bread ever

Cranberry Waldorf Salad
-- don't wait until Thanksgiving for this one

We're going the first weekend in Oct. A tradition with my husband's sister's family. It'll be our 6th year ... We make applesauce every year and apple crisp, but I'd like to try something new this year, too. I was thinking apple butter. But now I may have to add one of these recipes to the list, too. I love fall =)
