Favorite Apple Recipes

Going through all the apple recipes on the blog, I realized that I DO have a penchant for apples! I love eating a Pink Lady or a Honeycrisp apple with my lunch, but cooking and baking with apples is truly a passion. Starting with breakfast and ending with desserts, here are some of the best apple recipes I’ve shared over the last 8+ years! Plus a few notable recipes from some of my blogger friends.

Apple Desserts and Snacks:

Apple Bread slices on a white plate

Cinnamon Spiced Apple Bread

Slices of this yummy Cinnamon Spiced Apple Bread are ideal for breakfast, brunch and after school snacking. I’d also be happy with a nice thick slice for dessert!

Maple Glazed Apple Tart on a white serving plate

Maple Glazed Apple Galette

Making a double crust apple pie can be daunting, but you can obtain the same marvelous flavors with an apple tart or galette. This scrumptious Maple Glazed Apple Tart is kicked up a notch with a maple syrup glaze.

Folding a single crust up over the edges of a beautiful arrangement of apple slices is certainly simpler than fitting and crimping a top crust. A delicious autumnal dessert!

Cinnamon Apple Chips in a white serving bowl

Move over potato chips! These homemade Cinnamon Apple Chips are just as addictive and healthier to boost! A long stint in the oven turns super thin apple slices into a marvelous snack!

Apple Streusel Bars on a white dessert plate

Caramel Apple Streusel Bars

With a shortbread crust, sweet apple slices and an oat crumble, these Caramel Apple Streusel Bars are one of my favorite apple treats! Make sure you serve them with a drizzle of caramel sauce! You’ll have trouble restraining yourself with these gems in the kitchen!

Caramel Apple Pie Toffee Bars stacked on a square white plate

Similar to my caramel apple streusel bars, these tasty Caramel Apple Pie Toffee Bars have the bonus of a sweet crunch from bits of toffee!

Mulled Apple Cider in a white mug

This fall spiced Mulled Apple Cider is a fun, tasty alternative to a hot mug of coffee or tea when the temperatures plummet! Keep this recipe handy for the next time you have friends or family over this fall for a non-alcoholic, hot beverage offering!

Cream Cheese Apple Torte on a white ceramic cake plate

If you want an impressive dessert, dig out your springform pan stock up on baking apples!

This lovely, towering Cream Cheese Apple Torte starts with a buttery pastry crust followed by a layer of cream cheese filling and finally lots of sweetened cinnamon spiced apple slices. The resulting dessert is downright terrific!

Apple Bundt Cake on a white dessert plate with a red handled fork

Cream Cheese Filled Apple Bundt Cake

This Cream Cheese Filled Apple Bundt Cake combines two of my favorite desserts: apple cake and cheesecake! Not cheesecake per se, but a sweetened ribbon of cream cheese that’s super luscious and helps transform a simple Bundt cake into a memorable dessert!

Grilled Apple Crisp topped with ice cream on a white plate

Grilled Apple Crisp

Apple crisp appears on our autumn menu every single year! But the hubby was especially impressed when I “baked” it on our grill. The smoky undertones offered a delicious twist on  an easy classic recipe! Besides this Grilled Apple Crisp, make sure to check out this Easy Slow Cooker Apple Crisp, too.

Apple Entrees and Sandwiches

Apples pair wonderfully with pork, and here are three of my favorite entrees with that delightful combination:

Apple Mustard Pork Tenderloin slices on a white plate

Apple Mustard Pork Tenderloin

This moist and flavorful Apple Mustard Pork Tenderloin starts with a quick brine, then roasting and glazing with a mixture of reduced apple cider, brown sugar, soy sauce, Worcestershire and grainy mustard! Super easy and elegant enough for company!

Bacon Apple and Brie Panini quarters on a white plate

Bacon Apple and Brie Panini

If you’re looking for a quick lunch or dinner idea, a panini always hits the spot. With gooey Brie, salty bacon and crisp apple slices, this Bacon, Apple and Brie Panini can be made on your favorite bread and cooked on a panini press, grill pan or regular skillet!

Apple Topped Pork Medallions with Calvados Cream Sauce on a white dinner plate

Apple Topped Pork Medallions

I adore these Apple Topped Pork Medallions, especially the sauteed apples.  I always have to make extras to sample, for quality control, of course! The cognac cream sauce isn’t too shabby, either!

More of My Best Apple Recipes:

Lest this post get too long, here are a few honorable mentions plus a some from my favorite bloggers:

  • French Apple Cake – a Dorie Greenspan recipe that has a high apple to batter ratio! It’s packed full of apple chunks.
  • Fried Apple Pies – these apple turnovers or hand pies are absolutely delicious and provide built in portion control
  • Tea Poached Apples – poached in a sugar syrup, these lovely apple halves are a healthier, yet memorable dessert option!

 

  • Classic Apple Pie – always a family favorite, this old fashioned apple pie recipe can’t be beat
  • Dutch Apple Pie – a crumb topping makes this a super easy apple pie, plus the streusel topping is irresistible!
  • Maple Glazed Apple Tart – made with puff pastry with a touch of pure maple makes this the ultimate fall dessert (or breakfast treat!).
  • Old-Fashioned Apple Cobbler – cobblers aren’t just for peaches!
