33 Delicious Fall Apple Recipes
An apple a day keeps the doctor away, they say. That’s because apples are a nutrition powerhouse, complete with fiber and immune-boosting vitamin C. Better yet, apples are perfect baked into yummy pies and cobblers or simmered into luscious soups and chutneys. For your health and your taste buds, these award-winning apple recipes, such as Mom’s Apple Squares and Deep-Dish Apple Pie, are must-tries!

Dozens of sweet and savory ways to enjoy apples.
Apple recipes are a favorite fall fruit, whether you enjoy them in apple pie, apple crisp, applesauce or pork recipes that incorporate apples. No matter whether you like your apples sweet and fruity or tart and biting, you can feel good about eating these healthy apple recipes. Apples are a good source of soluble fiber, potassium and folate. So go ahead and enjoy them in good health.

Deep-Dish Apple Pie
With all that delicious fruit an apple pie should be healthy, but the truth is a slice can have as much as 750 calories and 30 grams of fat. For the most part, the culprit is the crust. We use whole-wheat pastry flour to add fiber and lower the saturated fat by replacing some of the butter with canola oil. The brown sugar-sweetened filling in this pie is made with two kinds of apples for the perfect balance. A slice has half the calories of a typical version and only 10 grams of fat—sweet!….

Spiced Chicken Breasts with Apple-Jalapeno Chutney
A bit of jalapeno jelly adds a touch of heat and color to the sweet-and-sour apple chutney. It makes the perfect accompaniment to this and other spicy chicken and pork dishes, particularly those cooked over the grill…..

Kitchen Hint of the Day!

Spray a small amount of vegetable oil on your knife before cutting a pie with a cream filling. This will stop the filling from sticking to your knife.

Kitchen Hint of the Day!

It’s always disappointing when you slice into your carefully prepared pie only to find that the bottom is soggy. If you have a problem with fruit juices soaking the bottom of your pie crust, brush the bottom crust with egg white before adding the filling. This will seal the crust and solve the problem. If your fruit filling is simply too wet, thicken it up. The best thickener is 3 – 4 tablespoons of minute tapioca. Just mix it with the sugar before adding to the fruit. Other solutions for soggy pie bottoms include prebaking the pie crust, partially cooking the filling, or brushing the crust with jelly before you fill it. When using a cream filling in a pie, sprinkle the crust with granulated sugar before adding the filling to keep the crust flaky.

Hint #1 Never stretch pie dough when you are placing it in the pan. Stretched dough usually shrinks from the side.


Hint #2 Pies with graham cracker crusts can be difficult to remove from the pan. However, if you dip the bottom of the pan in warm water for 10 seconds, the pie will come right out without any damage.

Even if your pie’s filling is near perfect, you won’t win any accolades for your creation unless its crust is up to par. Here are a few tips

Apple pie crust

Apple pie crust

for making perfectly flaky pie crusts.



* Be sure the liquid used in your pie crust dough is ice cold. In fact, anything hot going into a pie crust will affect it.



* Add a teaspoon of vinegar to the water for an even flakier crust, or substitute sour cream or whipping cream for the entirety of the water.



* Low gluten flour such as pastry flour is your best bet. Cake flour is too soft and won’t give the crust the body it needs, and bread flour has too high a gluten content and would make a tough crust. As a substitute for pastry flour, combine two parts all-purpose flour and one part cake flour or instant flour.



*Replace the shortening or butter with lard. Lard has larger fat crystals and three times the polyunsaturates as butter, making the crust flakier.

Do you want your pies to glisten like those in the bakery? It’s easy with this trick: Just beat an egg white and brush it over the crust before baking. This works especially well for a pie that has a top crust, like apple pie.
