falling in love with these apple recipes

Autumn has arrived! There’s so much to love about Autumn. Something I wouldn’t have said like ten years ago, but as of now, I really enjoy this season, as much as I love my birthday season; Summer. From Fall recipes, the change of the weather, cozy clothes (like sweaters), leaves changing to gorgeous colours before the fall from the trees, Thanksgiving (here in Canada it’s in October) and Halloween. I’m not a especially into Halloween. My sister, brother and I have said that we grew up in a haunted house, so I’m good, thanks. Lol. Anyway, one of the most popular ingredients that screams Autumn, are apples! Aside from the very popular Apple Pie, and I mean, who doesn’t love a good Apple Pie? There are so many delicious apple recipes. I hope you all like what’s on this list. Should you try any, please let me know how it went and/or if you like them in the comments!

Caramel Apple Cookies by Jaclyn – Cooking Classy
A soft, deliciously spiced cookie that tastes just like a caramel apple? Yes please! If you like caramel apples then you will love these cookies! They are loaded with Granny Smith apples (the traditional apple of choice for the real deal) and I also tossed those apples with lemon to enhance the slight tartness (so it doesn’t just fade away entirely once baked into the cookies). They have the perfect amount of cinnamon and nutmeg, just enough to highlight the cookie without overpowering and they are laced with the delicious flavor of brown sugar (both in the frosting and the cookie) to mimic the rich, toffee-like flavor of caramel. And these are finished with pecans both to add a contrasting light crunch and because they are such a great topping choice on a real caramel apple. – Jaclyn, Cooking Classy.

Quinoa, Roasted Eggplant, and Apple Salad with Cumin Vinegarette (Vegetarian, Vegan) by Giada De Laurentiis – Giadzy
Quinoa is my go-to grain these days because it is so satisfying and has a great texture. I love it in salads, especially this vegetarian/vegan one, which features Moroccan flavors. The eggplant adds body, the apple crunch and freshness, and the cumin warmth. This salad will keep for several days. – Giada De Laurentiis, Giadzy

Ham, Gruyere, and Apple Panini by Giada De Laurentiis, Giadzy
Ham and cheese never looked so good! This ham, gruyère, and apple panini is a step up from your typical sandwich, but it couldn’t be easier. Sautéeing the Granny Smith apples with thyme gives them a delicious savory-sweet flavor, and softens them just enough so they still keep some of their bite. The creamy, nutty flavor of the gruyère pairs perfectly with the smokey ham, and the apples add an unexpected tartness. – Giada De Laurentiis, Giadzy

Apple Cider Shandy by Giada De Laurentiis, Giadzy
I love to riff off of the traditional Shandy cocktail, which is typically beer mixed with lemonade. This one feels perfect for fall – a light lager beer like Heineken mixed with sparkling apple cider makes for a super refreshing, effervescent light drink that still feels appropriate for the season. – Giada De Laurentiis, Giadzy
