    Apple Cinnamon Steel- Cut Oats

    Steel-cut oats take a bit longer to cook than rolled oats do, but once you taste this hot breakfast dish you’ll understand why it's worth it. These oats are made all the more tasty with the addition of cinnamon, apples and vanilla and, if you’d like, a touch of maple syrup.

    Creamy scones are always a treat. Sweetened with applesauce and full of diced apples, this recipe is a teatime classic.

    Yes, you can do apples on the barbecue! We marinate apple halves with honey, oil and spices and then grill them until they’re browned and tender. Serve the apples with barbecued pork or as a dessert with a scoop of ice cream.

    Apple Phyllo Pie

    We replaced the regular pie pastry in this recipe so that you could whip up this scrumptious fall classic in half the time using a delicate phyllo crust.

    Baked Apples

    Baked apples are the perfect fall dessert for when you want something warm and apple-y but don’t have the time to bake a pie. Stuffed with walnuts, dried cranberries and brown sugar, these go well with our Caramel Rum Sauce.
