There are so many yummy ways to use apples, so read on for 17 of the Best Apple Dessert Recipes!
One of the great things about fall is apple picking season.
Apples are delicious anytime, but somehow they just seem to taste better when the weather is cooler and there are piles of crunchy leaves to kick through.
In this round-up of some of my favorite apple dessert recipes on the web, you’ll find apple cobbler, apple dumplings, caramel apple bundt cake (and cheesecake) and pear- stuffed baked apples. And have you ever tried apple pie ice cream sandwiches or apple dip?
Slowcooker spiced applesauce will tantalize for hours while apple fries, marshmallow apple dump cake, or apple cookies will satisfy for sure! Apple crisp for one is an indulgence you can’t go overboard with.
