Go ahead and find your favorite new fall recipe below!
Apple bars with cinnamon.
These apple pie bars have all of the things we love so much about apple pie – the taste, the comforting bite – but all in easy handheld form! They’re much easier to whip up than an apple pie is, so we like to use these whenever we’re craving a little apple pie flavor but don’t want to go to the trouble of rolling out a crust. The kids love ’em, we love ’em, because what’s not to love? Get the crowd pleasing recipe here!
You often hear blondies being compared to brownies. “Oh, you know, they’re like a brownie without the chocolate.” But we think blondies are a standalone delicacy in their own right. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves bring out the best qualities in the apples and the caramel. All of that flavor surrounded with soft, chewy cake is out-of-this-world delicious. It’s hard not to eat the whole pan! But that’s a pretty good problem to have. Get the delicious recipe here!
In America, we may be awfully proud of our apple pie, but we promise you the Polish Szarlotka gives us a good run for our money. More like a cake and a little reminiscent of a cobbler, Szarlotka (“cake with apples”) is less sweet than apple pie and has a denser, cakey crust with a crumbly top. Leave your rolling pin in the cupboard and give this a try; we don’t know if you’ll go back to old-fashioned apple pie again! Get the addicting recipe here!
The beauty of a quick bread is that you can eat it any time at all. It’s a great on-the-go breakfast, a tasty afternoon snack, and can even make up the better part of a filling lunch. They’re quick, they’re easy, and when you happen upon a recipe that’s incredibly delicious – what’s not to love about quick bread? This Apple-Brown Sugar version checks all those boxes. We love it because it takes practically no time at all to get it in the oven, but it’s bursting with the sweet flavor of brown sugar and juiciness of apples. Get the simple recipe here!
