Apple Desserts

Favorites of the fall.

Apple pie stands on top, of course. But don't overlook other outstanding desserts: try apple dumplings, crisps, and strudel.

Apple Pie

Whether double-crusted or streusel-topped, deep dish or custard-style, apple pie is America's dessert.

Apple Dumplings and Turnovers

Apple dumplings are whole apples, peeled and cored, stuffed with a sweet mix of spices, raisins and nuts, folded into pastry, and baked until the apples are soft and the pastry is golden.

Apple Crisps, Crumbles, Cobblers, and Brown Betties

Homier than pies, crisps and crumbles are easy to make, perfect when you're in a hurry. The crunchy topping is simply a mixture of oats, flour, butter, and sugar.

Serve these warm, comforting desserts with vanilla ice cream. To dress up your crisps, assemble them in individual ramekins or custard cups instead of in one big pan.

Apple Strudel and Other Pastries

This classic Austrian dessert consists of spiced apples and nuts rolled into a log of crisp, fine pastry.

Cakes and Cookies

And when you're done with the pies and pastries, there are still cakes and cookies to consider!

I receive a number of recipe site emails but this site has quickly become my favourite. I can always find something exciting and wonderful to make. My husband and I love to try new foods, especially authentic ethnic fare. I cannot believe how many great cooks are out there. Thanks to the folks at this site and the dedicated cooks that post their recipes. You always make my day.

I came across Allrecipes last week, and I fell in love. I have been searching for a site like this for years. So many wonderful home cooked recipes. My favorite. Thank you everyone for sharing. I am looking forward to expanding my joy of cooking. These past few years I have been in a rut cooking the same meals over and over. Now I can cook them, with different versions, (shared by the members here,) as well as new recipes. Again, thank you everyone.

I use this site almost every day. I love the recipes and especially love to read the reviews prior to making the recipe. thanks so much for a great resource! A CDN fan!

I was giving this site by my son. The love of cooking has been handed down for generation by my Italian side of my family. It's a passion and this site is full of great recipes and comments. I use it every day. Trish
Feb. 14, 2010 5:07 pm
I love this site! I have found the most amazing recipes and find it easier to get to my laptop and search for a recipe rather than dig through all my recipe books. It is good to see the comments and the stars assigned, so I know what is REALLY good!
Mar. 20, 2010 12:32 pm
I own over 150 cookbooks, but I still go to this wonderful site to hunt for a recipe. Never have failed me yet to have the perfect one for me.
Mar. 22, 2010 12:28 pm
I love this site, a friend of mine from work informed me of this site and I am always looking for something new everyday, it's my homepage actually...thank you for this wonderful free site and to all the wonderful cooks out there sharing their recipes with us all....

I have looked for this Bananas Foster recipe for years. I helped make it at a old friends house and it was so quick and easy & wonderful. This is the same way she showed me but I never got it just right after that one time. Now I can WOW people like she did me. Thanks

Great site. Thanks for sharing all these recipes. Always looking forward to view new tips, ideas etc on cooking, baking etc. Comes in handy for a busy person like me who enjoys cooking.
Sep. 13, 2010 11:26 am
This by far the best site there is. I have used it now for five years. It has any recipe you could ask for and new ones also and it is so great to get users comments on how they have changed or added to the recipes.

i love apple desserts
Sep. 29, 2010 8:55 pm
Since I am a foodie, this the best recipe food site out there. I read it everyday. I am just now getting back into recipe cooking after a hot summer working in my yard.
Sep. 29, 2010 11:12 pm
I just love this site. The recipes are easy and taste delicious. Thanks for making it available.
Sep. 30, 2010 6:49 am
I have used this site sooo many times, it is my go-to for everything. Especially important for me is that I can make my own seasonings, etc. I really try to get away from food additives. I have about 10 binders of your recipes (favorites) and still buy a magazine here and there, the pictures are so enticing. Thanks for the good work from Canada.
Oct. 1, 2010 6:23 am
This is the best website ever! I have used so many of the recipes and they've all become favorites that I've made over and over. Reading through the comments, I feel like I'm sitting around at a party talking recipes! Too fun!
Oct. 3, 2010 6:41 am

I have never found a site to ever compare with this one. All of the recipes that I have tried which have been many, have turned out delicious. I love to cook so I get the most satisfaction and results from these recipes.
Oct. 9, 2010 1:05 pm
What is the recipe for the desert shown on top of your emailing from 9/29/2010? appears to be a tart or open faced apple pie; picture is there, but I cannot find a recipe.
Oct. 12, 2010 11:52 pm
Mick...the recipe is called Simple Baked Apples. The recipe is just below the picture.
Oct. 13, 2010 11:03 am
This is the greatest site for recipes. Look forward to each day's new recipes. Thanks a million
Oct. 13, 2010 11:06 am
Like every one else I love this site. I have saved many recipes in my box and go to it frequently and it never fails me. I always find what I want. Keep up the good work.

I think this site is very good, better than very good in fact. I have tried a number of recipes, deserts and main course, all have turned out great. The comments have helped me a nuber of times and have also helped me tweak these recipes to make them somewhat my own. I have even taught my college aged daughter to turn here for recipes she can cook in her dorm room.
Jan. 31, 2011 12:49 pm
My son and I always check this site if we wanted to cook something with stuff we have on hand. Almost always we like what we find. My favorite site for recipes.
Feb. 25, 2011 10:46 am
I Love this site. used it many times.
Sep. 23, 2011 11:20 am
I just love this site. I'm so glad I came across it. The recipes are wonderful and so are the tips and comments. I even got my daughter to start cooking (she hates to cook) because of your site. She loves it. Keep up the good work.

This is a wonderful site with so many wonderful recipes. The first one I tried were the ooey gooey cinnamon buns which were a HUGE success with my family. My nephews especially love it when I visit and make them. I'll be trying many other of the recipes I've discovered. Thank you all!

I ate apple strudel for the first time many years ago in Hungary, I loved it and since then I've been trying to make it my self using different recipes, but never came close to it. I remembered that there was something between the layers of the fyllo that looked like breadcrumps. Very good idea and now I am going to follow your tips for making strudel, hoping that it will be close to that Hungarian one. Thank you for all your wonderful recipes and tips!
Oct. 5, 2011 5:51 am
I make something for my boyfriend every week. When he asks where I think up all the different desserts I make, I just say "They just come to me!" ...Well, the e-mails come to me.
Oct. 6, 2011 3:12 pm
this is my great site , it give u the small details that we need in cooking thanks
Oct. 8, 2011 8:21 pm
I have only just discovered this site about a week ago and already I have made 5 diferent recipes. I never really like to cook, found it boring. Now I am really enjoying it! Thank you everyone, I love it!!!!
Dec. 31, 2011 10:40 pm
I grew up in Michigan, the best pie apples (and for apple dumplings) are SPY apples, but you can't get them in AZ. So, this year, I emailed my order to an Eastern orchard. What a difference, what a pleasure. If you can get them, Spies are definitely the best baking apples.
Feb. 6, 2012 3:50 pm
I have tried alot of these recipes since I found this site.The cornbread I have never had before with a beef soup was out of this world. The roast pork makes me want to make it again soon and the apple recipes I can't get enough of. I love apples and cinnamon no matter how its cooked. The recipes are so easy and you can make almost anything without alot of costly ingredients.
Sep. 27, 2012 3:35 pm
I LOVE THIS SITE. I subscribe to 4 food magazines and collect Taste of Home Cookbooks and have done this for 12 years. So, I have a lot of places to look for something different to try. I always end up coming back here.......

This site is without a doubt the greatest for recipes.
Apr. 5, 2014 10:54 pm
wow this is an amazing site and now thatI am getting an IPad I will be able to cook lots of new recipes while watching the videos so no mistakes thanks for a great site
Apr. 5, 2014 10:57 pm
