The Best Easy Apple Dessert Recipes

Fall is here and it’s time to get cozy with some delicious apple dessert recipes. Here are my top picks for yummy desserts with fresh apples! Whether you are in the mood for something decadent or light and fruity, there is something here for everyone!

Here are my top picks for yummy desserts with apples! The best part about these recipes is that you can make them yourself! All you need are apples, your imagination, and a few simple ingredients from the nearest grocery store.

We go apple picking at our local apple orchard every Fall, so we always have lots of apples to use to make our favorite apple desserts.

There are so many delicious ways to enjoy apple recipes. Try a family favorite like a fruity apple crisp recipe with cinnamon sugar and nutmeg, or go for the decadent route and make that classic fall dessert, an apple pie topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream! 

For an easy apple dessert, try grilling them with a light coating of maple syrup and cinnamon. Alternatively, you can also fry it up in butter for an incredibly satisfying treat to end your day off right!

What is your favorite apple dessert? Maybe it’s an apple cobbler, apple-spice cupcakes, caramel apple poke cake or just simple cinnamon apples. Either way, this time of year, apples make the best fall dessert.

Whatever your favorite recipe is using fall flavors that are warm and comforting with just enough spice to get excited about pumpkin season – we’ve got all of the fixings!

What are the best Apple Varieties to Use in Desserts? 

What are the best apples for cooking? This is a tough question because there’s not one apple that will work perfectly in all desserts. There are, however, certain types of apples that have qualities which make them more suited to some dessert recipes than others:

If you’re looking for sweet apples that will taste delicious in your dessert recipes, look no further than the Honeycrisp Apples. These apples are incredibly juicy and have delicious flavors with a honey-sweet flavor profile with hints of cinnamon spice. The crunch is perfect without being too firm or hard to bite into which makes them great for classic desserts such as pies, an easy apple crisp or or an easy apple strudel!

Pink Lady Apples are great for baking because they have a nice sweet flavor, yet still manage to keep the tartness that typically accompanies apple flavor.

Rome apples are sweet and juicy, which make them a good option for baking. The thick skin is less susceptible to apple juice leakage in ovens than other varieties of apples because it doesn’t turn mushy when baked. I use them often in an easy dessert like apple peanut butter cookies, apple fritters and apple bread.

Granny Smith Apples are the perfect baking apple because they have a nice tartness that balances out with sweetness and creates an extra fruity flavor. It also helps if you’re looking for something more tangy than sweet-tasting.

Granny can provide some sour balance against other sweeter ingredients like honey and brown sugar so your dish will never taste bland! I love using these tender apples to make recipes like Caramel Apples, Apple Fries and Apple Cider Cupcakes.

Gala Apples are excellent baking apples because they have the best texture: sweet, juicy flavor and a firm flesh. Gala Apples make an ideal choice for an apple cake recipe, making pies or apple crumble with their sweetness balanced by the tartness of other fruits like Granny Smiths or McIntosh apples.

My personal favorite is to use a combination of apple slices.

We hope these recipes will inspire new ideas the next time you are looking for the perfect fall dessert for special occasions, your next dinner party or family gathering at home. You can’t go wrong with these delicious and simple recipes!
