Serve warm, covered with some of the baking glaze and real whipped cream.
*** 1/2 c of raisins can be added to the sugar and spice mixture. ***
Tip: McIntosh or Granny Smith apples are great for this.

Yields: 6 servings

Candied Apples

2 cups sugar
5 apple
2 cups hot water

Heat water and sugar to boiling. Flavor as desired. Pare and quarter each apple. Cut each quarter in thirds. Cook apples, a few pieces at a time, until clear and transparent. Drain. Place on waxed paper. Let dry 24 hours. Roll in granulated sugar.

Yields: 12 servings

Caramel Apples

8 cups sugar
3 cups white corn syrup
1 quart light cream
2 tablespoons salt
1 sweetened condensed milk
100 apple
1 peanuts -- Crushed

Mix sugar, syrup, cream and salt; cook till 240-degrees. Slowly add milk; cook again to 240-degrees. Dip apples into caramel mixture; set in cupcake liners with crushed peanuts in bottom.

Yields: 100 apples

Colonial Apple Crisp

6 apple -- sliced
1 cup flour -- sifted
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg -- unbeaten
1/3 cup butter -- melted
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Place sliced apples in a greased 6x10 inch pan. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and egg and sprinkle this mixture over apples. Then pour overall the melted butter. Finally sprinkle 1/2 cup (or less.) sugar and 1/2 t. cinnamon over all. Bake 30-40 minutes at 350 degrees. Serve warm with cream, milk or ice cream. This is equally good made with fresh peaches instead of apples.

Valerie's Note: I used an 8x8 inch pan. I sprinkled about 1/3 of a cup of sugar overall, rather than 1/2. Ron liked all the sugar, but I think even as little as 1/4 would still be good. I also sprinkled some Apple Pie Spice on it with the cinnamon. This would be best served with good vanilla ice cream, or by itself.

Yields: 8 servings

Granny Smith Apple Pie

2 1/3 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
14 1/2 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons flour
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon lemon zest
2 1/2 pounds apple -- pref. Granny Smith
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon half and half
3/4 cup heavy cream -- well chilled
1 tablespoon honey
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg

In a bowl, stir together flour and salt. Add shortening and blend until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add 4-6 Tbsp ice water or enough to form into soft but not sticky dough, tossing the mixture with a fork. Form dough into a ball, flatten it slightly, dust with flour and chill it, wrapped in wax paper, for 1 hour.
Divide dough into 2 pieces, one slightly larger than the other. Chill the larger piece, wrapped in wax paper. Roll out the other, 1/8-inch thick on a floured surface, and fit it to a 9-inch pie plate, and trim the edge leaving a 1/2-inch overhang. Chill the pie shell while making the filling.
In a large bowl, stir together 14 Tbsp sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, salt, and zest. Peel, quarter, and core the apples; slice thinly, crosswise, and add them to the sugar mixture, tossing to coat well. Mound the apple mixture in the pie shell, sprinkle with lemon juice and dot with butter.
Roll out the larger piece of dough to a 13 or 14-inch round on a floured surface and drape it over the filling. Trim top crust, leaving a 1-inch overhang. Fold overhang under bottom crust, pressing the edge to seal it. Crimp the edge decoratively with a fork. Make slits in the top crust to form steam vents. Brush with hand and sprinkle with the remaining sugar.
Bake pie in lower third of a preheated 425f oven for 15 minutes, reduce heat to 375f and bake for 40-45 minutes more, or until filling is bubbling and crust is golden. Transfer pie to a rack to cool.
In a chilled bowl, beat cream with the honey, cinnamon, and nutmeg until it holds soft peaks. Transfer to a serving dish.
Serve the pie warm or at room temperature with the Honey Spice Whipped Cream.

Yields: 8 servings

Homemade Applesauce

10 cups coarsely chopped red cooking apple (about
3 pounds)
1 cup apple cider
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar

Combine all ingredients in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 1 hour or until apples are tender, stirring occasionally.

Serving Size: 1/2 cup

Slow-Cooked Apple Butter

12 cups chopped, unpeeled apples
3/4 cup apple cider
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

Combine apples and cider in slow cooker. Cover and cook on low 8 hours or until apples are soft.

Purée in food sieve or food mill. Return mixture to pot; add sugar and spices. Cover and cook on low 1 to 2 hours longer. For a thicker apple butter, uncover, and cook on high until desired consistency, stirring occasionally.

Store in refrigerator or pour hot apple butter into hot canning jars, leaving 1/4 inch headspace. Adjust caps for canning. Process in boiling water bath 10 minutes.

Here are a few recipes I pull out every autumn when my trees start ripening:

Caramel Apple Pudding Cake

1 pkg. Yellow cake mix
1 tsp. Apple pie spice
1/3 cup skim milk
1 medium apple, peeled & coarsely chopped
¾ cup firmly packed brown sugar
1½ cups warm water

Mix together cake mix, apple pie spice and milk. Stir in apple pieces. Spread in 9” square pan (greased)

In a small bowl, combine brown sugar & hot water. Pour evenly over cake batter.

Bake at 350º 30 minutes.

Applesauce Bars

1 Cup brown sugar
2 cups flour
½ cup oatmeal
2 cups applesauce
1 tsp. Baking soda

Combine sugar, flour oatmeal, butter & soda. Reserve 1 cup. Line 9x13 pan with the rest, patting it down. Spread applesauce over crust, and top with reserved crumbs Bake 350º 40 minutes.
**This is also good using applebutter in place of applesauce

Apple Pie Filling (freezer)

18 cups sliced & peeled baking apples
3 Tablespoons lemon juice
4½ cups white sugar
1 cup cornstarch
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
10 cups water

Toss apples with lemon juice. Set aside. In a very large pot, combine sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg and water. Bring to a boil, and boil 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add apples and return to boil. Then reduce heat and simmer until apples are tender (about 10 minutes). Allow to cool.

Ladle into pint freezer containers (leaving some headroom). Seal & freeze. Use thawed filling as you would canned.

Makes about 10 pints (if I remember correctly)

Ugly Dumplings

2 pkgs. Refrigerator biscuits
2 or 3 chopped apples
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 Teaspoon cinnamon

Combine apples, sugar & cinnamon. Squash individual biscuits into flat circles. Fill each dough circle with about 1 - 2 teaspoons of filling. Fold over and seal edges well. Place biscuits on greased baking sheet. Bake according to temperature and time given on biscuit package.

**My kids used to love having these when they got home from school. Sometimes I’d get creative and drizzle frosting over them.

;-) ;-) I'm ALWAYS looking for new apple recipes ;-) ;-)

Apple Pie Jam

This recipe comes compliments of member Lindalou-

Linda Lou's Apple Pie Jam
4 cups tart apples, peeled and finely chopped
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
4 cups sugar
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 box powdered pectin
1/2 teaspoon butter

Add water to chopped apples to measure 4 cups. Place apples and water into large, heavy saucepan. Stir in lemon juice, cinnamon and allspice.

Measure sugars. Stir pectin into fruit. Add butter. Bring mixture to full rolling boil on high heat, stirring constantly. Quickly stir in both sugars. Return to full rolling boil and boil exactly 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim off any foam with metal spoon.

Ladle quickly into hot, clean jars, leaving 1/4" headspace. Wipe jar rims and threads. Cover with two-piece lids. Screw bands on finger tight. Process in boiling water bath for 10 minutes.

I get alot of questions about the apples/ water. Measure your chopped apples in a 4 cup measuring cup, leave them in the cup and fill with water till you see the water level at the 4 cup mark.
Someone tried using 4 cups apples and 4 cups water. OH, talk about syrup !!!
