(2017) Apple Compote

Another recipe from seriouseats.com. You don’t have to cook the apples in apple cider, but it definitely bumps up the flavor of these apples. Use water if you prefer, or if you just don’t have apple cider available.

(2017) Dutch Apple Pie Cookies

Normally, I’m not a fan of purchased pie crust, and you certainly can make your own. As a matter of fact, this would be a good place for a gluten-free press-in-place crust. (I find gluten-free crusts just don’t roll out well for me.) And if you want the cookie to be gluten-free, of course substitute a gluten-free flour in the streusel.

These make the most adorable little individual apple pies – the recipe’s from lovelylittlekitchen.com.

(2017) Apple Shrub

Are you a fan of shrubs? We are crazy about them at my house. This apple shrub recipes came from allrecipes.com. A friend on Orcas Island where they have more fruit trees per household than any other place I’ve been swears by this recipe to help use up the bounty from her backyard apple tree. Extra delicious with local ginger, of course.

(2017) Gluten-Free Apple Cupcakes

From a new site I’ve discovered, thealmondeater.com. We don’t particularly eat gluten-free at our house, we’re pretty omnivorous, but I am now keeping almond flour on hand to try out recipes like these. One nice thing about this recipe is – no mixer required.
