Today is the first day that it really feels like fall here in Nebraska. The air is crisp and there is a slight breeze. When fall comes, I can’t help but think of fresh apples and all of the great recipes that you can make with them during this time of year. Please enjoy the roundup that I’ve put together of great apple recipes I have found! Click the photos to visit the sites and view their recipes. These sites have amazing recipes, so I highly suggest staying and browsing their entire recipe section!

Apple Cider Cups

Every year I make up a big batch of apple cider in my crockpot. I usually use apple cider, red hots and cinnamon sticks. These apple cider cups embellished with a cinnamon stick would be the perfect during family game night or when you are huddled around a warm fire. What a fun way to drink apple cider!

Twig Mini Caramel Apples

These are the most perfect, natural looking, mini caramel apples I have seen! What a creative way to display a tasty snack. Mini caramel apples are among one of my favorite snacks this season! Mostly because I never seem to finish an entire huge caramel apple and regular sized ones are more sticky and a challenge to eat. Don’t these just look wonderful?

Mini Caramel Apple Pie

While I’m not a fan of regular apple pie, when mixed with caramel I am in love! These tiny pies would be the perfect portion size for your holiday dinners and much easier than cutting a large pie and trying to fight over who gets the most filling! The lattice work on the top of these makes them look complete. I just love this recipe and cannot wait for an excuse to make it!

Apple Rings

Don’t these apple rings look phenomenal? I love dipping my snacks and this recipe includes a cinnamon based icing to dip them in, or drizzle over the top of them. YUM! I think I’m going to make these the next time we are invited somewhere for a football party.

Autumn Apple Mint Jelly

I have to admit the photo was what drew me to this recipe, but I cannot wait to try it out! The author not only suggests using it on pastries, but also as a glaze on meat. Doesn’t it just sound tasty? I will definitely be making up a batch of this to use this winter!
