Our Favorite Apple Recipes to try this Fall

By Charlotte Linde & Erika Veduccio September 17, 2019

It's that time of year again - apple picking season! Depending on where you live, and what type of variety of apple, the next few weeks of September and the beginning of October is the best time for most to go apple picking. Have an abundance of apples to use up after your day of picking? No worries - this month we've decided to pull together a couple of our favorite apple recipes that we are sure you will love.

Nanny's Apple Pie

  • 5 Tablespoons sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons flour
  • 3 teaspoons cinnamon
  • About 9 cups apples (8-10 medium apples)
  • 2 Tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 egg white
  • Two uncooked pie crusts
  1. Peel, core, and thinly slice the apples; add to a large bowl.
  2. Add sugar, flour, cinnamon, and butter together with apples.
  3. Roll out and place an uncooked pie crust in the bottom of a deep 9-inch pie plate.
  4. Add the apple mixture on top of the pie crust.
  5. Place the second pie crust on top and press down gently, marrying both crust edges together (I fold the bottom crust over the top crust, making a folded look).
  6. Beat the egg white in a small bowl, then gently brush a thin layer of egg white on the top pie crust.
  7. Bake at 400 degrees for 1 hour.
  8. If the crust starts to look brown, cover with tin foil.
  9. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving with vanilla ice cream.

Applesauce Bake


  • 20 ounces of your favorite applesauce (or use this homemade recipe)
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 stick of butter 
  • 5 eggs
  • 5 pieces of white bread torn into pieces (leftover hot dog or hamburger rolls work as well)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Put torn bread in the bottom of a greased casserole dish.
  3. Put all other ingredients in a food processor and pulse just until butter is broken into small pieces (about 5 quick pulses).
  4. Pour over bread and bake for 60 minutes.

Apple Nachos

  • Sliced apples
  • Caramel sauce
  • Chocolate sauce
  • Handful of granola
  • Handful chopped almonds
  • Mini chocolate chips
  1. Wash, core and slice apples thin.
  2. Spread half of the apple slices on a dish, then drizzle with sauces and sprinkle half of your granola, nuts, and chocolate chips.
  3. Layer the rest of your apples and drizzle more of the sauces and top with remaining granola, nuts, and chocolate chips.

Roasted Butternut Squash and Apples


  • 2 pounds butternut squash, peeled, seeded and diced
  • 2 apples, cored and diced
  • 4 Tbsp butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch salt
  1. Preheat oven 425 degrees.
  2. Put butternut squash and butter into an oven-safe dish, sprinkle with brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt.
  3. Cover and bake for 30 minutes.

  5. Bake uncovered for an additional 30 minutes.

“Orchards are a beautiful place and it’s a wonderful experience to do with your children so they see where apples come from. Nothing beats the sensation of picking the first apple of the season.” -Charles Pratt
