More About This Recipe

  • I love the warm, comforting smells of apple and cinnamon baking during the fall. Or really anytime, but especially during the fall. There is just something about that cool, crisp air and the friendliness of those smells. They tell me: Sit back, relax. Read a book and snuggle up on the couch. Slow down, there's no need to hurry. When I think of comfort, I think of those smells.

    There are all kinds of great apple recipes to take advantage of during the fall. There's no need to be satisfied with apple pie alone. There are so many delicious apple recipes, you'll never be able to make them all: Apple Crisps and Crumbles, Pies and Tarts, Baked Apples, Caramel Apples, Galettes and Crostatas...and that's just the desserts! Don't forget the savory dishes. I love apples in stuffing for Thanksgiving, paired with pork chops, or even in a salad.

    This Apple Cinnamon Streusel Muffin recipe is perfect for times like these -- comforting and delicious.

    I could go on and on, but I'm getting hungry now! What's your favorite apple recipe?
