Every year we take the kids to go apple picking. There’s just something about apples picked from a local apple orchard that makes things taste so much better than what you can get at the local grocery store.

We make memories, the kids have a blast and we’re left with a bountiful harvest ready for all the best apples recipes. Some of my favorite dessert recipes are made with apples, so I’ve rounded them all up in one place to share with you.

A delicious dessert is what I usually make with the spoils of our picking, my personal favorite being a good apple crisp recipe or apple crumble. These apple dessert recipes are the perfect way to celebrate the fall season!

​Common Apple Dessert Recipes Ingredients

While all recipes will be different, these are some ingredients that will be helpful to have on hand when making apple recipes:

  • Apples – Some of the most popular apple varieties to use in the best apple desserts are granny smith apples, honeycrisp apples and red delicious apples. But really you can use many different kinds of apples.
  • Spices – Most favorite apple desserts include spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, apple pie spice, and ginger.
  • Pastry – A lot of easy apple desserts have some sort of crust or pastry. A buttery shortbread crust, pie dough, a crumble topping, or even crescent roll dough are all very popular.  

So whether you’re looking for an easy apple crisp, an easy apple cake or even simple baked apples, these best fall desserts are the perfect combination of apples and spice! Let us know in the comments which ones are your favorites!
