Fall is a time for frolicking in crispy, colorful leaves, snuggling up by the fireplace (or is it too early for that?), and arguably the most important, apple picking. Maybe you head out to the apple orchards in town to pick and gather apples with your family and friends. You head home with buckets and buckets of apples only to realize that one can only eat so many raw apples until one must find another way to eat them. This apple recipes round-up is meant for that realization. Enjoy!
You might have an abundance of apples, but other ingredients in your kitchen might be missing. Head over to our store pages for Safeway, Whole Foods, and Costco to find ways to save when you shop.

This recipe is great because you can eat everything including the bowl, which in this case, is a baked apple. However, I recommend topping this off with some vanilla bean ice cream to really take it up a notch, in which case, a bowl is highly recommended.
