    Question Apple recipes anyone???

    Our local apple orchard is just about ready for picking and I can't wait to take the kids and go! Last year a bunch of us put together an "apple party". We all had to bring something made with the apples we picked. We then got a sample of all the goodies and voted on the top three. I'm looking for some really yummy apple recipes to try before this year's big "event". My apple crisp won a prize last year but I'd love to try something else. Any suggestions??? Thanks!

    My mom makes a yummy apple torte that has a crust, cream cheese based filling, apples and sliced almonds on top. If you would like me to post this recipe, let me know and I'll be happy to!

    CL's cinnamon-apple cake is marvelous! If you don't have it on hand, check in out in the web site recipe finder.

    I love to make apple recipes also so I have a few for you to try!
    Apple Bread- this is great and easy to make! You don't have to have a bread machine, so if you like making bread you should give this one a try.
    Waldorf Salad is also good this time of year since apples are in supply! There is a thread for that recipe.
    Enjoy!

    Andrea,

    Could you please post the recipe for apple bread? I was looking for a good recipe for that last year at Christmas (I like giving different kinds of breads to all the relatives it seems like I'm always driving to go see around the holidays!) and I don't have one for apple bread. Thanks so much!

    The Honeyed Apple Torte from CL Sept 99 is delicious - even gets better the next day. I highly recommend it.

    The Fresh Apple Coffee Cake in The Complete Cooking Light Cookbook sounds wonderful, let me know if you'd like it posted...it's made in a tube pan using 4 cups of fresh apples and seems very light with only 188 cal and
    5.4gm fat per slice!

    Does anyone make baked apples?

    I used to have an excellent butter rum baked apple recipe and can't seem to find it.

    Anyone have something similar?

    (Oh, and here's the thread everyone...)

    I'm not sure how well this would work for a sampling party - but I just made the parmesan crusted chicken with apples and leeks and it wonderful -- very flavorful and elegant. Something I'd definitely serve for company and it seemed very Autumn-ish with the apples. It was part of the Cream article from April 2000.

    My mom makes the best pork chops stuffed with apples. Okay, so it's not a dessert, but it was one of my favorites growing up. I also found a good recipe for pork chops with apples and apple jack which was really good. I see the October CL has lots of good apple desserts in it. I want to try the apple tort. I should be off to the orchard soon myself! I recently picked some macintosh apples, but my husband wants some other varieties.

    Shelly, thanks so much for posting your recipe! It looks great!! I think I'll give it a try this weekend and use the lighter cream cheese. I'll let you know how it tastes!

    I just got my October CL issue today and am eager to try several of those recipes. If anyone else has a favorite out of these let us know!

    Hi!
    I just went apple picking and had to get through 2 huge bags of apples in a few days because we were moving.

    I made a bunch of apple butter and canned it.

    I also made baked apples-cut up dried apricots, nuts, raisins, mixed cinnamon and brown sugar and put into cored apples. Place apples in a deep dish with enough apple juice to cover the apples half way and bake at 350 until soft. They are delicious.

    Have fun!

    Shelly,
    I made your apple torte over the weekend and it was delicious! I used the light cream cheese and would not even think twice now about using the heavier version. The torte tasted even better the next day. My husband ate two slices although made not comments, my eight year old wanted to eat the last three pieces and we had to fight her off! I saw the apple torte recipe in this month's CL and may try the crust with less butter, etc. but base the rest on your recipe. YUM!!!!!

    Cool

    Andi, I'm glad you enjoyed it! I don't have my new issue of CL yet so I haven't seen the apple torte recipe. I LOOVE apple desserts - I have a recipe for Apple Streusel Bars that is to die for but it is so high in fat that I rarely make it.

    Hi All,
    Here is my apple butter recipe:

    Peel 14 good sizes apples (I used a variety of types).

    Place apples in large pot with 2 1/2 cups of apple cider. Bring to a boil, lower heat to LOW, cover and cook for 40 minutes stiring occassionally.

    After 40 minutes remove from put and blend in blender until smooth. Return to pot add 1/2 tsp ground ginger, 2 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp allspice. Cook uncovered for 20 minutes over low heat stirring frequently. Once it reaches the consistancy that you like, remove from heat and cool.

    Can be stored in an air tight container for up to one month.

    I canned mine to give as gifts.

    Enjoy! The smell alone is worth it!

    One more thing-I forgot the brown sugar.

    When you add the spices, add one cup brown sugar.
    Sorry!
