Apples are the epitome of fall in every way. Not only are they at the heart of fall baking, but they’re the ultimate representative of back-to-school season. Whether you’re heading out to the apple orchard to stock up on your favorite varieties or you’re taking advantage of sales at the local grocery store, Chef Addie Gundry has some fun ideas to put those apples to use. For those looking to start the morning off with some apple-y goodness, check out our recipe for homemade apple doughnuts. Sprinkle with some confectioners’ sugar for an extra sweet taste. For general snacking around the house or with your lunch, make our super simple cream cheese dip that pairs perfectly with sliced apples. And for dessert fans, we have three different options. If you like something a little fancier, check out the recipe for baked apples. Our oven-baked apple crisp is an excellent accompaniment to a big scoop of ice cream, particularly during the tail end of summer. And when you’re looking for apple fun on the go, you have some unforgettable apple cookies to munch on. So feel free to load up this fall—we have plenty of ways you can put those apples to good use.
