    collage of apple desserts

    This time of the year the air is crisp and gorgeous apples are in season. There are so many delicious recipes that you could make a different one each day of the season. There is sure to be a dessert you’ll love somewhere on this list.

    Many of these recipes will tell you which ariety will work best with the recipe. Truthfully, whatever you have on hand will probably work, but the general rule of thumb is to use a more tart apple for baking purposes. As it cooks, sugars will naturally be released, so reach for varieties such as granny smith, Braeburn, and Jonagold.

    Ready to get baking? Here are some of the BEST recipes to make this season! And don’t forget to top your desserts with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, whipped cream and a drizzle of salted caramel. :)
