What do you plan for this fall? Cooking some special fall theme recipes will be the best to welcome the fall season. One of the special fruits in the fall season is apples. Apples are versatile and lend themselves to a variety of flavors. You might try changing up the spices or adding a different flavor to your favorite apple cake or baked apples.
Apple Cookies With Raisins
These old-fashioned apple cookies are made with sour cream, raisins, and butter, which gives them their mouthwatering flavor and texture. There are no spices in these cookies, but a little cinnamon sugar sprinkled over the tops before baking would add a nice finishing touch. Or add 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg to the batter along with the flour mixture. See more possible variations and some optional icing ideas below the recipe.
Fresh Apple Cranberry Cake
This fresh apple and cranberry cake recipe is delicious with a caramel sauce, a cream cheese frosting, or a simple dusting of powdered sugar. It’s a moist and delicious cake and it is perfect for an everyday snack or for a special occasion. Drizzle this fresh apple-cranberry cake with the easy caramel sauce or top it with a cream cheese frosting.
Apple Pie With Cream Cheese Pastry
A rich and delicious cream cheese pastry makes this apple pie inviting and extra special. Sprinkle some decorative sugar over the glaze just before baking. Using a combination of Granny Smith and Golden Delicious apples in this pie balances the sweet taste with tartness.
Cinnamon-Spiced Fresh Apple Bars
A simple spiced batter, fresh grated or shredded apples, and chopped walnuts make these apple bars moist and delicious. You can shred the apples with a mandoline, grate them with a food processor, or chop them very finely. And there’s no need to peel the apples.
Gooey Caramel Apple Cake
This cake is as moist and delicious as its name implies. A hot caramel topping is poured over the cake as soon as it comes out of the oven, making it impossible to resist. The one-layer caramel apple cake is the perfect size for most families.
Classic French Caramelized Apples
The apples are meant to be just ever so slightly sweet, not overpowering, and sugary, so they’re versatile in nature. Spicy-tart and thoroughly warming, they make a fabulous addition to crepes or homemade ice cream. They’re equally at home as an unexpected garnish for mildly spicy grilled chicken or a tropical menu from Martinique.
Apples are the best treats at any time you want. What can compare to the aroma of homemade cinnamon-spiced apple crisp or pie? Crisp, sweet varieties of apples are best for eating out of hand, while others are best in baked goods.
