Fall is right around the corner and for many of us that comes with visits to local apple orchards. Of course the apples are delicious to eat on their own but there also many different types of apple dessert recipes to tempt us. Here are some differences among some of the various apple desserts:
Apple Brown Betty: baked apples with spiced bread crumbs layered between the fruit
Apple Buckle: moist cake topped with apples and a streusel topping
Apple Cobbler: less fussy than pie; pie dough, biscuit dough, or cookie dough is spooned/dolloped on the top rather than being chilled and rolled out
Apple Crumble: baked chopped apples with a crisp streusel topping that does not contain oats
Apple Crisp: apple mixture with a topping that includes oats and brown sugar
Apple Pandowdy: this apple dessert is “dowdied” up when dough is cut or broken into pieces and pressed into the bubbling juices
I love Summer but am looking forward to Fall and visiting some local apple orchards. Whether I eat the apples as a snack or incorporate them into a dessert I know they will be delicious.
