Ahh, fall. The crisp, cool air. The leaves changing colors. Football. Sweatshirts. Bonfires. Orchards. And my favorite fruit to bake and cook with this time of year, APPLES.
Did you know October, not September is the official National Apple Month? We didn’t either! Whether you are a Golden Delicious, Honeycrisp or McIntosh fan (or any of the other types), this tasty fruit can be enjoyed solo, but is even more amazing when paired in your new favorite appetizer, lunch or dessert!
We have rounded up a mix of unique and scrumptious apple recipes that will allow you to fully embrace the coziness and comfort of the season!
I mean, an apple a day after all…
