NBR: Best Apple Recipes

What are your favourite recipes for using large amounts of apples? We're going apple picking tomorrow, but my husband made a huge apple crisp last weekend so I want to make something different. Ideas?

p.s. I'm not a big fan of pie.

Re: NBR: Best Apple Recipes

  • We make a lot of crock pot apple sauce. I still have left over apples from when we went apple picking. Im thinking maybe apple bread or muffins.

  • I like apple spice cake, but I've never made it myself.
    Also, with a large amount of apples, I like to dehydrate them.  Dried apples are yummy!

  • Apple sauce (crock pot or stove)
    Apple butter 
    Baked apples with cinnamon and sugar
    I make huge batches of the above and can what we don't eat that day.

    Also:
    Apple pie/crisp
    Apple cinnamon muffins (doesn't use a lot of apple though)
    Homemade caramel or fruit dip and dip apple slices in them

  • I could not get enough of stewed apples at the start of this fall.  I am sure I made a huge pot at least once a week.  I used it as base for apple crisp, but my favorite use was to stir the cooked apples through oatmeal or cream of wheat.

    I also like to use apples in savory recipes.  I have a ham, apple & pasta casserole recipe that I love, and ham, apple & swiss biscuit pockets are very common in my house come fall, and author Victoria Abbott just posted a recipe for a pot roasted chicken with apples that looks fantastic at http://www.mysteryloverskitchen.com/

  • ONE PIE TO RULE THEM ALL. 

    LORD OF THE PIES: One Apple Pie to Rule Them All
    Recipe Type: Dessert
    Author: Kelsey
    Prep time: 1 hour
    Cook time: 45 mins
    Total time: 1 hour 45 mins
    Serves: That depends on how many people you want to share your epic pie with.
    An apple pie with a sweet filling and a buttery streusel topping.
    Ingredients
    • 1 refrigerated pie crust at room temperature for 15-20 minutes
    • For Filling
    • 3-4 large granny smith apples
    • 2/3 c sugar
    • 1 1/2 Tbs all purpose flour
    • 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
    • For Streusel
    • 1 1/4 c all purpose flour
    • 1/3 c light brown sugar
    • 1/3 c sugar
    • 1 stick melted butter
    Instructions
    1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
    2. Press pie crust into pie plate ensuring good contact with the corners. Crimp the edges if you’re fancy.
    3. Slice peeled and cored apples thinly into large bowl.
    4. Add the 2/3 c sugar, 1 1/2 Tbs flour, and 1 1/2 tsp of cinnamon to the apples. Throw in an extra pinch of cinnamon, because cinnamon is awesome.
    5. Stir the apples and dry ingredients together and let them sit. As the sugars start to melt stir a few more times.
    6. In a separate bowl combine dry ingredients for streusel and use a fork to break up any clumps.
    7. Pour the melted butter, a small drizzle at a time into the dry mix of streusel ingredients combining it with a fork. The mixture will look clumpy and bumpy, but clumps should be pea sized or smaller.
    8. Give the apples another stir and pour them into the prepared pie crust. Arrange the apples so they are neatly filling the pan, with a small mound at the center.
    9. Top the apples with the streusel mixture. It will be a LOT of streusel, but the butter, sugar, and flour will make your pie taste like magic, so don’t fight it.
    10. REDUCE OVEN TEMP TO 340 DEGREES.
    11. Place pie in the oven, and bake uncovered for 35 minutes.
    12. Cover with foil and bake for another 8 minutes.
    13. Use a knife and insert it at the center of the pie, listen for the sound. The apples should have a tiny bit of crunch left, but should be mostly soft.
    14. If they’re not ready, add another 8 minutes. Continue this pattern until the pie is done.
    15. The foil should keep the crust from browning too darkly, but the streusel should be golden.
    16. Let sit completely untouched by your greedy, pie hungry hands for at least an hour.
    17. Cut pie into meaningless wedges, because you’re not actually only going to eat one serving anyway.
    Notes

    Don’t forget to turn the oven temperature down before baking. I waited about an hour and 20 minutes before cutting mine, and it was still perfectly warm and delicious inside. I’m convinced the waiting made a big difference in the final result.

  • I second (or third) crock pot applesauce!  It's easy & can be frozen!

    You can prepare apple crisp up to the point of baking & freeze it to bake later.  I did that last year & it was awesome having apple crisp a couple months after apple season!
