35 Apple Desserts You Must Make

Tart, crunchy, sweet, it’s apple season, my favorite time of year! The apple is such a versatile fruit, starring in dessert recipes, but holds its own when used in comforting savory dishes. I love trying all the varieties available, they are all so different. 

However, I do have a favorite when it comes to eating them raw…..the Honeycrisp.  It’s juicy and instantly refreshing. Crisp, but not too dense and very sweet. I always buy too many, I can’t help myself. Who cares, they are delicious. And the possibilities with apples remain endless. 

There are always so many desserts I want to make every Fall. I never get to all of them. But, here is an awesome list, I hope I can at least try most of them. Or better yet, let’s work on it together and compare notes.

    Because I am pie crust challenged, I choose to make the upside down apple pie. I made it before and it turned out perfectly juicy and crispy at the same time. It was marvelous. You have a sure winner there! Thanks.

    What about the Butterscotch Apple Cake???? ~ to DIE for…..

    Would love to make the Upside Down Apple Pie but I’m the only one in the house that likes nuts, so I’d end up eating the whole thing myself…..

    Everything sounds incredible Cathy!! Thanks so much for including my apple crisp bars!

    Thanks so much for the mention! Now I have even more apple recipes to add to my list to try… it never ends : )

  8. I love the Honeycrisp, too. (Did you know it’s a MN apple?!) My favorite is the Haralson, another MN apple – it’s a bit more tart, and very firm – a perfect match for baking and chunky sauce. It’s what I grew up with on the farm, and I can’t let go! Thank you so much for the link – I appreciate it!

  15. I am so glad I found your list… It looks great! I’ll have to try a few of these before our apple trees run dry. I’m trying the fruit leather from Savory Simple tonight and definitely one of the others on the weekend. Thanks for compiling.

  16. These are all wonderful recipes for an apple. This is one of my all-time favorite fruit. I usually have apple paired with lots of water when I am on a diet.
