The Apple Recipes You Need For The Start Of Fall

We're talking pie, and so much more.

One of our favorite things about fall is the fact that we can start cooking hearty dishes again. Between the mac and cheese, bowls and bowls of soup, and apples — in all their varieties — it’s easy to say goodbye to the long days of summer (and the berries that leave with them).

We love apples this time of year, and not just for the pies and cakes we can make with them — though those don’t hurt. Apples are great in savory dishes too, paired next to a roasted pork tenderloin, for example.

We’ve found over 20 apple recipes to make sure you take advantage of fall’s greatest gift ― and to be sure you’re spending time in the kitchen, the best place to be when the weather starts to cool. Some of those recipes are perfect for late summer too, when apples start trickling in.
