That first little chill is in the air, which means it’s time to pick apples and make some of my very favorite homemade apple treats. In these recipes, I’ll walk you through delicious homemade apple treats step-by-step, with pictures to help make it as easy as possible. You can get great deals buying apples in bulk this time of year, and it’s always frugal to cook from scratch. Don’t be intimidated–these recipes aren’t too tricky to master, and you’ll be able to stock your freezer with apple treats to last you for months. Just imagine the scent of apple-cinnamony deliciousness filling your kitchen…it smells like fall!
The easiest of the four recipes is the Chocolate Caramel Covered Apples. You can make gourmet apples that would sell any fancy eatery at a fraction of the cost! Slice them up or put them on a stick. Either way, it’s a treat that is always well-received!
Homemade Apple Dumplings look like a lot of work. They’re really not so bad. Made with a few baking staples, this will warm your home up and make the house smell delightful. Served warm with ice cream and caramel sauce and it’s the perfect night!
Grandma’s Apple Strudel is a favorite family recipe. It makes quite a few servings, so it’s perfect for Fall festivities.
I always make extra to freeze for a quick homemade dessert.
The smell of apples simmering in the home for Homemade Applesauce are a welcomed smell in my house. This is better than anything you’ll get out of a jar….AND no preservatives and a lot less sugar! I freeze extra applesauce for the winter months. It’s an easy task to get the whole family in on.
