    Here are some that we like:

    My Mom's Apple Crisp

    4 cups apples -- sliced
    1 tsp cinnamon
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/4 cup water
    3/4 cup flour -- sifted
    1 cup sugar
    1/3 cup butter -- softened

    1 Place apples in buttered 10x6 baking dish. Sprinkle with cinnamon, salt and water. Rub together flour, sugar and butter. Drop mixture over apples. Bake at 350º for 40 minutes. Serve

    Apple Bread

    1 (3 lb) bag small apples (12 to 14 apples)
    2 cups sugar
    1 cup vegetable oil
    3 large eggs, lightly beaten
    2 tsp vanilla extract
    3 cups all-purpose flour
    2 tsp ground cinnamon
    1 tsp baking soda
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 cup chopped pecans, toasted

    1 Peel and finely chop enough apples to equal 3 cups. Set aside.

    2 Stir together sugar and next 3 ingredients in a large bowl.

    3 Stir together flour and next 3 ingredients; add to sugar mixture, stirring just until blended. Batter will be stiff. Fold in finely chopped apples and 1 cup pecans.

    4 Divide batter evenly between 2 greased and floured 9- x 5-inch loaf pans. Bake at 350° for 1 hour or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from pans, and cool on wire racks.


    Apple Dumplings (I have not idea why these are called dumplings ~ they are really like cinnamon rolls)

    2 cups sugar
    2 cups water
    1/4 cup butter
    1/4 tsp cinnamon
    1/4 tsp nutmeg
    2 cups flour
    2 tsp baking powder
    1/2 tsp salt
    3/4 cup shortening
    2/3 cup milk
    1/4 cup sugar
    1/2 tsp cinnamon
    3 cups cooking apples -- shredded and peeled

    1 For sauce~~~~In a large saucepan, combine 2 cups sugar, the water, butter, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, and nutmeg. Bring to boiling and boil for 5 minutes; set aside (should have about 2 cups sauce).

    2 For dough~~~~In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in shortening until pea size. Make well in center. Add milk all at once. Stir just until moistened. Knead dough on a lightly floured surface 10 to 12 strokes or until nearly smooth. Roll out to 12x10 inch rectangle.

    3 For filling~~~~Combine 1/4 cup sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon; set aside. Sprinkle apples evenly over dough. Sprinkle with sugar mixture. Roll dough into spiral, starting from a long side. Pinch seam to seal. Cut into twelve 1 inch thick pieces. Place in 13x9 baking pan. Pour sauce over dumplings. Bake in a 350º oven about 50 minutes or until golden.

    You could easily double the apples if you don't have any pears:

    Fruit & Granola Breakfast Bake:
    3 medium apples, peeled and cut into bite-sized pieces
    3 medium pears, peeled & cut into bite-sized pieces
    1/3 c dried tart cherries (I've always used dried cranberries)
    1/3 c apple butter
    1/4 c apple juice
    1/2 tsp cinnamon
    1 c low fat granola (I use extra!)

    In an ungreased 2-quart rectangular casserole combine apples, pears, & cherries. In a small bowl whisk together apple butter, apple juice and cinnamon. Pour mixture over fruit in dish and toss to combine.

    Bake, uncovered, in a 350* oven for 30 minutes. Uncover; stir fruit mixture. Sprinkle with granola and bake, uncovered for 10-15 minutes more or until top is golden and fruit is tender. Serve warm.

    This freezes nicely, too.

    Here is a great recipe for apple pie bars. They are so yummy. They are almost like a cereal bar.

    2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 cup butter, chilled
    1 egg yolk
    2/3 cup milk

    1 cup crushed cornflakes cereal
    8 cups thinly sliced apples
    1 cup white sugar
    1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    1 egg white
    2 tablespoons white sugar
    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

    1 cup confectioners' sugar
    1 1/2 teaspoons milk
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


    DIRECTIONS

    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
    2. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour and salt. Cut in the 1 cup butter until mixture is mealy. With a fork, stir in the 2/3 cup milk and egg yolk. Divide dough into 2 equal parts. On a lightly floured surface, roll out 1 piece of dough into a large rectangle. Place on the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking pan.
    3. Sprinkle cereal over the crust, then layer the apples over the cereal. Stir together the 1 cup of white sugar, and the 1and 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon and nutmeg; sprinkle over the apple layer. Roll out the other half of the dough and cover everything in the pan. Brush top crust with the reserved egg white and sprinkle with a mixture of 2 tablespoons sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon.
    4. Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour in the preheated oven. Top crust should be lightly browned. Mix together the 1 cup of confectioners' sugar, 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of milk, and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla until smooth; drizzle over bars while they are still warm.

    My mom used to make this when we were kids. I still make it today. It's soooo easy but tastes soooo good.

    APPLE JACK

    Peel, core and slice apples and place in 9x13 cake pan (fill pan about 1/2 to 3/4 full. Sprinkle with sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg (opt.) to taste, depending on sweetness/tartness of apples. Stir to coat apples with sugar/cinnamon.
    Now mix up your favorite yellow cake mix according to package directions. Pour batter over apples. Bake according to cake mix package directions. Good served warm or cold with or without ice cream or whipped topping. No frosting or icing needed. It's more like a cobbler type dessert.

    It's also good served in the morning with some milk poured over (you can nuke it for about 30-45 sec. before pouring milk over it.) Yumm-O!!

    You could dry some. One of my guys love dried apples.

    And, you could smash up some of the dried apples and put them in muffins.

    I've got a bunch of apples too so yesterday I peeled, cored and chopped about a dozen and threw them in the crock pot with about 1/2 cup of water, some cinnamon and brown sugar and left it took cook for a couple of hours. Voila! Applesauce! I also made

    Tarte aux Pommes

    1 frozen pie crust, defrosted (or you can make your own pastry, which I did)
    2 or 3 apples
    applesauce
    cinnamon
    honey

    Roll out the pastry and place in a pie or flan dish.
    Spoon some applesauce into the pie shell and spread it around to make a base about 1/4 inch thick.
    Peel, slice and core the apples. Place them in the pastry in a circle, working from the outside in (like this).
    Sprinkle with a bit of cinnamon and drizzle with some honey.
    Bake at 400 for about 30 minutes. Yummy!
