You’ve been apple picking and have bags of apples to use. Here are some delicious apple recipes including drinks, dinners, and desserts.

Just last week I had a ton of apples sitting in the fruit bowl that were beginning to go soft and nobody wanted to eat. So, I made 6 jars of my homemade slow cooker applesauce recipe. Flynn loves having applesauce for a snack, and I use it when baking too.

Speaking of apple pies. Although I didn’t use my slow cooker apple pie filling recipe for these, these mini apple pies are delicious. I even used the same filling to make a gluten-free apple pie for Flynn. I bought a pre-made gluten-free pie base from Whole Foods, added the pie filling, and then a gluten-free crumb topping. He devoured it.

This recipe may not really call for many apples, but fresh apples as a garnish add a delicious twist to this cinnamon apple slush. Don’t forget the cinnamon donut too.

Instead of popcorn for movie night. Set up a caramel apple dipping table for the whole family to enjoy. I’m sharing all of the details for this over at Party City. If you want another twist on this, check out the poison apple dipping table I put together for The Descendants movies.

Apple pie cocktail

Just like the cinnamon apple slush, this apple pie cocktail doesn’t use apples in the recipe. Add an apple slice garnish to your glass though for a delicious addition to the autumn cocktail.
