Apple desserts make my heart sing and in fact, apple pie couldn’t be more American right?? However, apples when applied to almost any baked treat taste fantastic and make some of the best desserts on the planet. During the upcoming holiday season, apple desserts are surely going to be part of my dessert regime to serve at home with my family, so I thought why not compile a list of some of my favorites, so you can bake something scrumptious to enjoy with yours.
There are hundreds of apple varieties and depending upon what you’re aiming for as far as texture and sweetness are concerned, choose an apple that is right for your recipe. For instance, Granny Smith, Honey Crisp, Gala and Fiji make good choices for baking here in Southern California because they are sweet, yet slightly sour, and can hold up in the oven. But, depending upon where you live, there are so many more options out there for baking apples, so ask your farmer at your local farmer’s market, and get some solid advice. These apple desserts will definitely brighten any occasion, so go ahead and get baking, and enjoy your holiday season.
