How about some applesauce?

I like "fried" apples, just peel, remove core, slice or cube, sautee in some butter with brown sugar and cinnamon until crisp-tender. I LOVE this with a good ol' porkchop!

Apple-Fennel-Walnut Salad - cubed apples, cubed fresh fennel, toasted walnuts. Dressing consists of olive oil, walnut oil if available, spring onion, fresh fennel leaves minced, s & p - serve with some grilled chicken, or add some blue cheese to it and use it for a salad topper. This is excellent served with some grilled salmon.

Have you ever dried apple rings in the oven? Or is that how you would even do it?

I made, one time (I didn't write down the recipe) a soup with sausage (kielbasa or andouille) and apples. It was chicken broth based and I think had onion, celery, carrots..............darn, I wish I would have written it down 'cause it was good. But you get the idea.

You can also make a casserole with alternating slices of sweet potato and apple and use a sauce of - I found the recipe - here it is:

3 medium sweet potatoes
2 medium to large apples
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 cup margarine or butter
1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)
-Preheat oven to 350.
-Lightly spray casserole dish with non-stick spray.
-Peel and slice sweet potatoes into 1/4 inch slices.
-Peel, core and slice apples.
-Mix together sugar and spices in a small bowl.
-Place a layer of sweet potatoes in the bottom of the casserole dish, using 1/2 of the potatoes
-Place a layer of apples on top of potatoes, using half of the apples.
-Sprinkle with pecans (if using).
-Cover with 1/2 of the sugar mixture.
-Dot with butter or margarine.
-Repeat layers.
-Bake, covered for 1 hour.

The "fried" apples posted above can be a "stuffing" for some crescent rolls. Stuff and bake. You can also make a ring out of the crescent rolls with the wide part to the center, place stuffing all around and wrap pointed ends into center.

Definately try an apple and fresh cranberry pie with crumb topping, we love it and cranberries should be in season soon. I'll dig up the recipe if you want it.

Oh yes Amber - there's a recipe I made once - kind of an apple brown betty I guess, with raw oatmeal in it. I think the oatmeal was in the crumb topping.

Allen’s Fantastic Apple Crisp
Makes: one 9 x 13” pan

I like to use a mix of Granny Smith and Macintosh apples for this one. It provides a balance between taste and texture. If you can find some really good-sized apples, you may want to go down to 7 apples. Also, if the juice or cider is really sweet, you may want to reduce the sugar down to ½ c. Ice cream would go great with this dessert.

1 c all-purpose flour
¼ t baking powder
¼ t baking soda
1 c packed brown sugar
1 c quick-cooking oats
½ c butter, softened
9 apples, peeled, cored, and cut into wedges
¾ c white sugar
1 T all-purpose flour
1 t ground cinnamon
½ c apple cider
-or- apple juice

Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Sift together 1 c of the flour, baking powder, baking soda, oats, and brown sugar. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender or your hands. It should have a mealy texture, similar to coarse sand. Set aside. Mix the white sugar, 1 T flour, and ground cinnamon together, and toss with the apples. Place the sliced apples in a 9 x 13” pan. Pour the juice or cider evenly over all. Crumble the streusel topping evenly over the apple mixture. Bake at 350°F (175°C) for about 45 minutes.

A few quick ideas, before I run.

If you're not sick of apple pie yet, Paula does a quick apple fried pies, like an apple pocket. You could bake them as well - fold the dough over chopped apples, raisins and walnuts sprinkled with cinnamin and some other goodies.

Chicken waldorf salad - chicken, mayo (curry powder if you like), apples, raisins, walnuts, celery, lettuce, cherry tomatoes.

Apple pancakes, topped w vanilla ice cream and caramel syrup.

Apple stuffing - apples walnuts, onions, raisins, celery. Cut a pocket in chicken breasts, fill w stuffing, douse in apple juice & bake.

Apple rings - saute in butter w cinnamon - top w ice cream & whipped cream.

Apple, gouda (cheddar or swiss) quesadillas - add nuts if you like. Or, an apple quesadilla pizza.

Trying to recall a recipe - apples in their jackets? The apples were wrapped in dough, pinched at the top (like a little package), brushed w melted butter? and baked. Will see if I can find it.

Apple slaw.

Cinnamin, riasin, apple bread pudding.

I remember we had a discussion/recipes awhile ago for crockpot baked apples.

Those are just a few quickie ideas. If an apple idea catches your eye, let me know & I'll pm them to you. Would be very lengthy to post each here and I know you want to use 'em up. :-)

This particular recipe does not have oatmeal in the topping, but it's still very good.

Alix, my recipe is lengthy. I'll post it tomorrow, I've made a note to myself. You'll love it. People at work have asked for it too because they have been apple picking. We planned on apple picking today but it was a wash out, it rained all day. Hope next weekend is sunny!
