Fall Apple Recipes
If you saw our #NUBucketList last week, you know that this week is the perfect transition from apple picking to cooking with apples. Whether you have your own apartment or are still in an on-campus dorm, we’ve got you covered on the easiest and yummiest apple recipes.
Microwave Apple Crisp
A true fall classic, microwave apple crisp is a warm, gooey apple dessert dish that goes great with vanilla ice-cream. Best part is, it only takes 15 minutes to prepare and is ready in 3 minutes! Here is our favorite recipe from Betty Crocker.
- 4 medium tart cooking apples, peeled, sliced (4 cups)
- ⅔ cup packed brown sugar
- ⅔ cup quick-cooking or old-fashioned oats
- ½ cup Original Bisquick™ mix
- 3 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
- ¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ¾ teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1 In ungreased 2-quart microwavable casserole or 8-inch square microwavable dish, arrange apple slices. In small bowl, stir remaining ingredients until crumbly. Sprinkle over apples.
- 2 Microwave uncovered on High 7 to 10 minutes, rotating dish 1/2 turn after 5 minutes, until apples are tender. Serve warm.
Apple Overnight Oats
This recipe is perfect to make the night before a busy day of classes. Just mix the ingredients the night before and take it in a tupperware wherever you go. Add a little variety with other fruits and toppings of your choice! This Quaker recipe is a great starting point for overnight oats.
- 1/2 Cup(s) Quaker® Oats
- 1/2 Cup(s) Low-fat milk
- 1/4 Cup(s) low-fat yogurt
- 1/2 Cup(s) Apple, chopped
- 1/8 Teaspoon(s) Cinnamon
- 1 Teaspoon(s) Honey
- 1 Teaspoon(s) Chia seeds
Add Quaker® Oats to your container of choice and pour in milk and low-fat yogurt. Add in a layer of chopped apples, and top off with cinnamon, drizzle of honey, and chia seeds. Place in fridge and enjoy in the morning.
Traditional Apple Pie
Of course, we didn’t forget the OG apple pie that’s essential for any fall holiday. The ingredients and baking utensils required are more than the previous two dishes, but the end result will make the hard work worth it. This dish from AllRecipes is one that will rival your grandma’s apple pies.
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 8 Granny Smith apples – peeled, cored and sliced
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Melt the butter in a saucepan. Stir in flour to form a paste. Add water, white sugar and brown sugar, and bring to a boil. Reduce temperature and let simmer.
- Place the bottom crust in your pan. Fill with apples, mounded slightly. Cover with a lattice work crust. Gently pour the sugar and butter liquid over the crust. Pour slowly so that it does not run off.
- Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Continue baking for 35 to 45 minutes, until apples are soft.
