My 15 yr old grandson lives on Granny Smiths. I think they're too tart to eat out of hand. I make awesome apple sauce with 2 Royal Gala, 3 Granny Smith and 2 Golden Delicious apples, among other ingredients. The GS keeps the applesauce from being too sweet. A little shot of brandy in the sauce helps too.

Corazon's French Apple Cake and Verablue's Apple Cake with Caramel Sauce are both great. I have made the following recipe for dessert and everyone loves it:

Caramel Apple Dumplings

1-1/2 cup water
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 TBS butter
1 tsp. vanilla extract
t salt

1-1/4 cup all-purpose flour
cup sugar
1-1/2 tsp. Baking powder
cup milk
2 TBS butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup diced apples

Combine all sauce ingredients in pan. Bring to boil, stirring constantly.
Start dumplings-combine flour, sugar, baking powder together.
Add milk, butter and vanilla, stir just until moist, add apples.
Drop into the boiling sauce the size of large teaspoons.
Lower heat to low, cover and cook until knife inserted comes out clean-about 8-10 min.
Serve over vanilla ice cream.

I love just eating the apple alone another good one is sliced and dipped in vanilla honey yogurt.

here's a link to one of my favourite things to make with granny smiths.

Pork Tenderloin with Roasted Apples and Onions Recipe at Epicurious.com

for tweaks: i use more fennel seeds and mustard than the recipe calls for, to give the top of the tenderloin a good coat, and i add a hunk of butter to finish the sauce.

reading back, i agree with uncle bob, again (man, this guy knows how to eat!). my wife makes a killer apple pie using a combo of apples, about half of which are granny smiths.
The next time someone asks what you did this past weekend, squint really hard and say, "Why, what did you hear?"

Granny Smith is my second choice (Pippins are so hard to find any more) for all my cooking and baking needs, from pies to my extremely popular Sweet Potato and Apple Bake side dish for Lechon (roasted pork with liver pt gravy).

Cut them in half, take out the core and fill the empty spot with peanut butter. (Presuming you aren't allergic) Excellent snack that will give you energy fast and it will stick with you for a bit too.

Slice and top with a good sharp cheddar cheese.

At Cracker Barrell they have cooked apples in a sauce that is yummy. Anyone have a way to make this - I have lots of apples just starting to rippen on trees. Is this something that I could can?
