Cooking and Baking with Apples, Part 1

Cooking and Baking with Apples, Part 1

I love going apple picking in the fall. It allows me to spend plenty of time in the sunshine and crisp fall air, either alone or with family and friends, and I come home with plenty of delicious fruit. Most orchards only charge you for the cost of the apples you pick, making this a very affordable weekend outing. Plus, you can usually get a cup of fresh cider or a warm cider doughnut when you’re done. Just think of it as a reward (a very delicious reward) for all of your hard apple-picking work.

Not sure what to do with all those apples once you get home? No worries, I and other food bloggers have plenty of suggestions for you!

First up, the sweet recipes. The apple pies, breads and cakes. Next time, we’ll look at the savory applications.

Stay tuned for Part 2, where we'll talk about savory apple recipes!

What's your favorite sweet apple recipe?

    We take our kids apple picking every year and we're always looking for new things to do with the apples. I've made the Apple Tarte Tartin from Joy the Baker. Its delicious! The Carmel Apple & Oatmeal Cobbler sounds yummy! Can't wait to try that one. Thanks for the recommendations!

    Baked apples are the best! When they are too soft too eat, toss them in a pot, add a can of (diet) soda, lots of cinnamin and BAKE!! They smell amazing, are easy to make and delicious to eat. I core them before I put them in and I leave the skin on. Can also toss in raisins, peaches, plums; whatever. Enjoy!

    I make apple jelly and applesauce every year. I had never had store bought jelly until college and I still hate the stuff. So everyday with a days worth of work my family can enjoy the good stuff!

    I love making desserts with apples because they always seem to disappear faster than other desserts.
