The Best Apples for Apple Pie


New Dynamic Collection

The Ultimate Guide to Apples

Find out what to do with all those fresh, crisp apples.

From the Dynamic Collection: Recipes with Apples

When it comes to fall baking, apples are the ultimate seasonal fruit. But there are so many kinds of apples, and they can taste pretty different.

For instance, did you know that Honeycrisp apples come in as early as late August and September? And you’ll have to wait until early October for Braeburn apples, while Pink Lady, or Cripps Pink as they’re also known, won’t be ready until November.

Some apples are great for snacking, like the McIntosh or the Jonagold apples. If you’re planning to bake, Golden Delicious apples are ideal, although a lot of bakers prize the tart Granny Smith for pies.

It can be a lot to keep up with, so we put together a complete Apple Picking Guide as part of our RecipeLion Recipes with Apples collection. And, of course, that’s in addition to the amazing recipes like Apple Crisp and Chocolate Chip Apple Cookies. Yum!!


As fun as it is to pick apples, remember not to fill your bag with just one type. Most grocery stores only carry a few varieties of apples, but orchards will usually have a lot of varieties that you can’t find anywhere else. That’s actually one of the tips in our Ultimate Apple Picking Guide, which, along with four more tips, will help make your apple picking a success.

Then there are the recipes, like the one for Baked Apples. They’re just sweet enough, with brown sugar and cinnamon, but they really pack a nutritional punch with coconut, raisins, and chopped pecans.

All you have to do to make these is core your apples, then combine the brown sugar, pecans, raisins, coconut flakes, cinnamon, and salt, and add some diced apple. Fill each apple with that mixture and bake it for about 45 minutes. Top with vanilla ice cream for a real treat.

I’ll share the complete recipe with you, plus all the recipes in the Recipes with Apples collection when you join the RecipeLion Gold Club. Everything in the collection is yours, including full-color pictures of each recipe, prep times, cooking times, and even better, immediate access to our entire library of cookbooks, cooking show episodes, special collections, and magazine issues. It’s all yours right now with your membership in the RecipeLion Gold Club.

I’ve always been a fan of fresh-out-of-the-oven Apple Crisp. There’s just nothing else like it. And with kids in the house, I also love how easy it is to prep. All you have to do is peel and slice your apples, then sprinkle your cinnamon and brown sugar mixture over them. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, sugar, and softened butter, then sprinkle that on your apples.

Bake them for about 45 minutes and you have an amazing treat for a chilly night. There’s minimal clean up, which is always a bonus, and you can liven it up with some whipped cream or ice cream.

Get the full recipes for the Baked Apples and the Apple Crisp, as well as the Ultimate Apple-Picking Guide in Recipes with Apples, along with plenty more family-friendly recipes when you join the RecipeLion Gold Club. Plus you’ll also enjoy instant access to hundreds more breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, and drink recipes. The complete RecipeLion Gold Club Library of cookbooks, special collections, dynamic collections, recipe videos, and magazines is yours with your membership.

Recipes with Apples includes full-color pictures, and everything you need to know to make each of these recipes. Along with the Baked Apples and Apple Crisp recipes, you’ll get the recipes for :

  • Chocolate Chip Apple Cookies — If there’s one thing that can make chocolate chip cookies better, it’s adding a touch of applesauce and some diced apples right from the orchard.
  • Apple Doughnuts—Do I really need to tell you how mouth-wateringly delightful this recipe is?
  • Cream Cheese Dip—There are only so many hours in the day to bake apple recipes, but what are you going to do with all those apples you’ve just picked? Slice them up and dip them in this vanilla and brown sugar cream cheese dip. It’s seriously the best.

And remember, the Recipes with Apples collection is just one of the many collections you get with your Charter Membership in the RecipeLion Gold Club. Our full (and growing ) library of cookbooks, cooking TV show episodes, magazines, and collections, all with complete written instructions, and full-color pictures, is yours instantly.
