I think they are good for making baked apples with cinnamon, brown sugar, butter and currants.

Chop them and saute with butter, cinnamon, nutmeg and brown sugar. Makes a great topping for waffles.

Yum. I have one every morning with my breakfast. I just wash it and...eat it. Some of the ones I've had recently have been so juicy that they've dripped off my chin. Love Granny Smith apples.

AMEN SISTAH!!!!

If you get a small wheel or wedge of brie, top it with brown sugar and chopped walnuts; either bake in oven or nuke, no matter, once warmed and runny scoop it up on top of a wedge of granny smith apple or a baguette. Triple cream/creme brie would be the best but it's not mandatory.

They also make one heck of an apple crisp. Thanks to Alix I can bake!

This obviously is for more than 3 apples but you can alter to fit any amount.

Pile apples high in 9 x 9 pan because they will “bake down”.

Peel, core and dice some apples. Do about 2 medium sized apples per person you want to serve. Toss about 1 cup of the dry ingredients in with the diced apples. I like to do granny smiths.

1 cup brown sugar
1 cup quick oats
2/3 cup flour

Mix these together. Toss some of it with the apples (add cinnamon here), then add 1/2 cup or more of butter to the sugar/oats/flour and blend till mixed well. Use hands or pastry blender for best effect.

Then to the rest of the dry stuff add 1/2 to 2/3 cup butter and work it with your hands till it’s crumbly. Dump it on top of the apples and toss it in the oven to bake for about an hour at 350.

Oh, crap, Vicky. Now I have to go back (30 miles one way) to buy some brie. I always have brown sugar and walnuts. And, poo, Buck and I ate the last of our homemade baguette last night. You are evil.

I love using Granny Smiths in salads (mini-salads paired with a protein) and in relishes. They pair well with pork, scallops, salmon, crab, duck, foie gras, and venison. There's some others but I had a lot of wine at dinner so that's all that I can think of for now.
