It will soon be fall, y’all, and my thoughts always turn to apples when I think about shorter days and a soon-to-be chill in the air. I love apples all by themselves, but I really like them all gussied up in the form of a dessert so I decided to share my top 5 apple recipes!
I recently made easy apple dumplings for Sunday dessert. It’s one of those recipes that I’ve had forever and is always best served with Blue Bell Vanilla ice cream.
Another of my favorite apple desserts is Apple Bread with Praline Topping! You can find the recipe here!
Crumb Top Apple Pie is a recipe I’ve been making for over 30 years. If you like a really good crumbly top crust, this one’s for you. You can find it here!
My all time favorite apple dessert and the one that brings back the most memories of growing up is Grandma’s Apple Tarts. She and her beloved maid, Annie, made the best fried apple tarts in the world! I can close my eyes and see them rolling out the dough and crimping the edges with the tines of a fork. Here’s the recipe! (It also includes grandma’s tea cakes, but that’s a whole ‘nother delicious story!
Speaking of apples, here’s the easiest and tastiest taffy apple dip in the world!
