Apples. So Good for You. So Great in Desserts.

We don’t need to trot out the old saying about “an apple a day” to convince you that Newton’s favorite fruit could help spare you from soaring healthcare costs. (Although this article spells it out very nicely and quite specifically.)

You know apples are nutritious. You’ve known it since you were a kid. So isn’t it kind of ironic that apples lend such wonderful flavor to so many amazing (and, at times, decadent) desserts?

There are so many different varieties of apples. Hundreds, in fact. Red Delicious, Golden Delicious, Granny Smith, McIntosh, Fuji, Gala, Jonathan are some of the most popular. Some are sweet, some are tart, some are better for baking, and most are wonderful raw, right off the tree.

But with autumn’s nip in the air bringing many of us back into a baking mood, we thought this would be a good time to focus on some wonderful desserts that help underscore the apple’s role as the favorite flavor of fall.

Try these recipes and see if they don’t help you to savor the season.
