Mom's Homemade Apple Cider

"Awesome recipe! My entire house smells delicious—this is a perfect thing to make on a fall day when you've got company coming."

-Chef Treenie

-Chef #792255

Apple Butter

"I made this for my family and am so glad I did. It will definitely be a family recipe. Easy and fun. Makes the house smell great while it's cooking and is the best tasting apple butter I have ever had.”


Kentucky Apple Festival Apple Pie

"This is a yummy recipe! I added just a dash of flour to the apple mixture, to keep apple juices a little thicker. I also found the cooking temp to be a little too high. My crust was very dark brown after only about 15 minutes. I reduced the temp to about 350 and it cooked nicely."

-Lisa Sorrell

Caramel-Apple Cheesecake

"I found this recipe in a magazine several years ago and have made it quite a few times since then. It's so good — everyone always loves it."


Individual Puff Pastry Apple Pies

"We have made this several times now, and the results are really yummy. The frozen puff pastry I bought recommends baking at 400 and not 350. For me, cooking at 350 for 20 minutes yielded a less puffy and anemic sort of looking pastry. When cooked at 400 for 25 minutes, the pastries rocked!”

-Desert Mojo

Apple French Toast Casserole

"Awesome recipe. Easy to assemble the night before and bake in the morning. I used Granny Smiths because that's all I had on hand, and it was still terrific. By the way, the smell was incredible while it was baking.”

Caramel Apple Dip

"Superb!!! So delicious. Very sweet, too, so reduced sugar by leaving white sugar out alltogether. On the second go I added 1 tsp cinnamon and it went really nicely also."


Dutch Apple Pie

"This is the most amazing apple pie recipe in the world! I've made it for three different groups of people so far, and it was gone in hours. I decided to use part Fuji apples (sweet) and part Granny Smith apples (tart). The combination was perfect!"


Kittencal's Caramel Apples

“I’ve tried to make caramel apples from scratch before but the caramel always slides off. This recipe was amazing! It worked out perfectly. It's worth waiting for the caramel to reach the perfect temperature.”

-Jonathan Melendez

Moist Apple Cake
