Apple Recipes

Apple recipes are so quintessential to the way we celebrate Fall in our family. The official first day of Fall begins with slow cooker apple butter because it leaves my house smelling delicious. And the inevitable apple butter cake follows, of course.

For savory ways to incorporate this into dinners for two, be sure to check out my Brussels sprout and apple slaw in cheddar cups, my apple chicken burgers, and my apple-wrapped salmon dinner with bacon hash.

If I had to pick a favorite, I would make sure you saw my apple pie pizza, mini apple pies for two, and my 5-minute instant pot applesauce.

Advice on cooking with apples:

  • The apples that hold their shape while baking are: Granny Smith, Honeycrisp, Jazz apples, Pink Lady,
  • The apples that soften while cooking are: Golden Delicious, Red Delicious, Gala, and McIntosh, Fuji
  • If possible, try to work in a Granny Smith apple into your baking because the tart flavor is irresistible
