How Do Ya Like Them Apples?
What is fall without apple picking? Although we're in the city, many of us have ventured out into the wilds of Connecticut and other surrounding rural areas to go apple picking this fall. I just did this past weekend. And after paying $15 to fill a bag with apples, I’ve been eating two apples a day, plus trying out some tasty recipes.
Here are some recipes that are definitely worth giving a try, and at the end, you’ll find an original recipe of my own.
Fresh Apple Cake
This recipe comes from a friend of mine as a matter of fact. I have yet to try it, but I know that I’ll love it since it’s just so easy!
Peanut Butter Dip
As someone who loves to snack, any excuse to dip something healthy into a tasty treat that involves peanut butter is good enough for me! So how about this low-calorie dip?
Curried Sweet Potato-Apple Soup
I’ve written before about how it’s helpful to keep the heat in the wintertime, and what better way than to combine a spice with a soup to warm you up! Just another way to throw some apples into something you’re not quite sure you would usually mix in.
Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies
I know that I’ve avoided including apple pie recipes, but I wanted to steer clear of the mainstream recipes. And for me, I love a good cookie!
I’ve made two batches of these already, and they disappear so quickly that I hardly had time to take a photo of them.
Baked Apple Chips
2 large apples
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Cooking spray, for coating the baking sheets
1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Spray baking sheets with cooking spray.
3. Slice apples as thin as possible. You can do them a little thicker if you don’t want your chips as crunchy.
3. As you slice them, spread the apple slices on the baking sheets, ensuring not to overlap them.
4. Once the apples are cut, sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. (You can do more if you prefer them with more cinnamon or more sugar.)
5. Bake for approximately 2 hours, or until the edges start to curl, or they are as crunchy as you’d like.
I always love to hear when people try out recipes or have different spins on apple recipes, so please share in the comments!
