I am one of those people who feels the slightest cool breeze at the end of August, and I am already lighting fall candles. I love cozy sweaters, autumnal colors, and all of the delicious produce that’s in season this time of year.
That’s especially true for apples. There’s nothing that says fall like apple-picking, so I’m really looking forward to my next trip to the orchard. I definitely want to make the most out of the fruits of my labor (see what I did there?). If you’re an apple lover like me, try these fall recipes to make the most of your apple haul.
It’s practically law that you have to make apple butter after a trip to the apple orchard. This is a slow cooker recipe, which appeals to me because I want my whole house to smell like an apple, but if you don’t have one, there are plenty of stovetop recipes too.
Cheesecake is one of my favorite desserts, usually with strawberries on top. This fall, I will have to make an exception for these cheesecake bars. And I love any recipe with a shortcut!
There’s nothing like grilled cheese to warm you up on a chilly autumn day. This recipe also features prosciutto and gouda — yum!
Talia blew my mind when this recipe dropped. I had never thought of apple crisp as something I could eat for breakfast. This is one I have made again and again.
Apples add such a nice texture and flavor to salads, but I have never thought to grill them! I love blue cheese, but if you don’t, try substituting feta or goat cheese instead.
Butternut squash is another fall produce that I love incorporating in recipes from September to December. Not to mention, what could be more autumnal than a bowl of squash soup?
Apple cider is one of my favorite fall treats, so to find this in cookie form is delightful. This recipe reminds me of those frosted sugar cookies you buy at the store that someone brings to every potluck.
It would be a sin to not include an apple pie recipe on this list. I like that this one uses a mix of different types of recipes and features a flakey crust.
I had to include this WWL recipe as well. Developing this recipe was a labor of love for Talia, and it was totally worth the effort! I like to put an apple slice on top of each muffin for a fancy touch.
You have to love a one-pot meal! With chicken thighs and apple cider, you know this turns out juicy and tender. I’d add a side of roasted sweet potatoes and/or Brussels sprouts.
This is one of those recipes that I never would have thought to make, but my mouth waters just thinking about it. I love the idea of a sweet and savory pancake!
I love breakfast casseroles and I have never thought to put apples in them. This would be great for Sunday brunch, but I think it could also work well for meal prep!
We have released a couple of scone recipes recently on the WWL meal prep program, and they have both been hits! This scone recipe is a delicious way to use your apple orchard haul.
I usually bake pumpkin bread for my friends in the fall, but this year, I might need to make this instead! This recipe is so easy and features ingredients you probably already have on hand.
I haven’t had monkey bread in so long, but I definitely want to change that after reading this recipe! This is perfect for an autumnal brunch for the sweet tooths.
