Apples, Apples, Everywhere!
Over on Facebook, my stepmother asked me for some yummy apple recipes. This post is for you Gloria!
Here are some wonderful recipes that use apples. I have included some sugar free recipes as well.
Mini Apple Pies (This is an easy, quick recipe. The key to less work is cold ingredients.)
Apple Cinnamon Muffins (You can very easily make these with no sugar. Leave it out of the recipe and omit the topping. They are just as good without the topping!)
Apple Butter (This is a unique way of making apple butter and much faster that the traditional method.)
Applesauce (Use super sweet apples and you don't need sugar!)
Easy Apple Crisp (While in this post I use canned apple pie filling, here is a really yummy one using fresh apples.)
These are on my list to try next:
Old Fashioned Apple Dumplings
And of course, apples aren't just for desserts either!
Apple Cole Slaw
Grilled Cheese with Apples and Arugula
Apple and Oats Bread
Apple and Cranberry Stuffing
Butternut Squash and Apple Casserole
Spiced Apple and Butternut Squash Soup
For those of you who can't or don't like to eat sugar:
Whole Wheat Apple Pie
Apple Pineapple Crisp, No Sugar, No Flour
Apple Spice Cake
Gluten Free, Sugar Free Apple Cake
Just a few more that I found unique:
Apple Graham Dessert
Fall Harvest Baked Apples (This recipe uses maple syrup instead of sugar.)
Vegetarian Macaroni and Cheese with Apples
Apple Cheddar Pizza with Toasted Pecans
Apple, Sauerkraut and Cheddar Quesadillas
Baked Apple Cinnamon French Toast
What do you do with all those apple peels? Try your hand at making vinegar!
I hope this gets you motivated to try some new apple recipes. Not only are apples delicious sweet treats to eat all by themselves, but with just a little effort you can make them into memorable treats the whole family will love!
