Once the air starts to take on that crisp feeling and the leaves slowly begin to change I start to think about apple picking and most importantly the scrumptious foods I can make with all those fresh picked apples.  Here are a few recipes that I enjoy.  Check out more atAllRecipes.

Apple Squares –


1 cup sifted all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped apple
1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts
2 tablespoons white sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9×9 inch pan. Sift together flour, baking powder, salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon; set aside.
  • In a large bowl, mix together melted butter, brown sugar, and 1/2 cup of white sugar with a wooden spoon until smooth. Stir in the egg and vanilla. Blend in the flour mixture until just combined, then stir in the apples and walnuts. Spread the mixture evenly into the prepared pan. In a cup or small bowl, stir together the remaining cinnamon and sugar; sprinkle over the top of the bars.
  • Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in preheated oven; finished bars should spring back when lightly touched. Cool in the pan, and cut into squares.

Warm Apple Cinnamon Cobbler


4 apples – peeled, cored and sliced
1 cup water
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 cup fructose (fruit sugar)
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup canola oil
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 cup low fat buttermilk


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F ( 190 degrees C).
  • In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine the apples, water, cinnamon, cornstarch and fructose. Cook until apples are soft and mixture is thickened, about 10 minutes.
  • Pour the apple mixture into a casserole dish.Prepare biscuit dough by combining the whole-wheat pastry flour and baking powder. Add the oil and stir until well mixed. Add the honey and buttermilk; stir with a fork until flour mixture is moist. Add additional milk if necessary.
  • Drop biscuit dough by tablespoons on top of apples. Bake for 20 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown. Serve warm.
