Fall is my most favorite season of the year. I enjoy the colors of the leaves, the cool chill in the air, the fun fall clothing. My most favorite part is the holiday’s and the food. Since today is the first day of Fall, I wanted to celebrate by sharing my must have Fall recipes. When I think of Fall I usually think of apple and pumpkin. Today I am going to share apple recipes that you must try this Fall and tomorrow I’ll be back with pumpkin recipes. There are a couple today they do involve both apple and pumpkin together. Plus, I am sharing a new recipe that I found in the October issue of Wasatch Woman magazine. It’s an apple topping that was included with a recipe for German pancakes. I made my recipe for German pancakes and topped it with the apples. I must admit I don’t think the apples went perfectly on the German pancake. The apple topping it self was great. I just don’t think the German pancake was the best place for it. I do think it would be great on ice cream or on top of pumpkin pancakes, gingerbread pancakes, or Belgian waffles. Give these recipes a try and enjoy the flavors of Fall.
My must have apple recipes for Fall.
Apple German Pancakes – this recipe is definitely the way to go with a recipe involving apples and German pancakes.

Apple Dumplings – who won’t love apples wrapped in crescent dough the drenched in a sugary syrup. Vanilla ice cream is a must to accompany this simple dessert.
5 medium Gala or Braeburn apples, peeled and diced (I like to use Gala)
6 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
In a saute pan, heat butter until melted. Add apples and saute until apples become tender, about 4-5 minutes. Add brown sugar and toss to coat. Sprinkle in desired amount of cinnamon and stir. Cook until sugar dissolves to make a caramel like syrup. Serve over top ice cream, waffles, pancakes, or what ever else you like.
