While I'm sad to see summer go, I welcome fall with open arms because it means I can make these three recipes whenever I want and not be judged for it. What would make fall even better is if winter didn't come right after it, but hey let's not think about that right now.
These are some of my absolute favorite things to make this time of year and they're incredibly easy, too.
1. APPLE PIE APPLES
(because hello...apple.pie.apples. Enough said)
What You Need:
-2 apples (or 1 per person; we used Honeycrisp but you can use your favorite type)
-1 Can Apple Pie Filling
-1 Pie Crust
-Vanilla Ice Cream (optional)
1. Cut the tops off your apples and scoop out the insides with a knife or spoon.
2. In a small bowl, mix 1 teaspoon (or more-whatever suits your tastes!) cinnamon in with the can of apple pie filling, then fill the mixture in the apples.
3. Unroll 1 pie crust, cut into fourths, then cut into small strips. Lay 3 strips horizontally on top of the apple, then weave 3 vertical strips in and out to go on top. Cut the edges off around the apple.
4. Bake in a baking dish filled with 1/2 cup water in the bottom at 375-400 degrees for 25-30 minutes!
2. APPLE CHIPS
3. PUMPKIN PIE YOGURT DOTS
(a recipe for your little ones!)
What You Need:
+Vanilla Greek Yogurt (one of the single containers)
+Pumpkin Pie Spice, optional
+Pour an individual cup of greek yogurt into a bowl. Use the same cup to measure 1/2 full of pumpkin puree. Add 1/8 tsp of pumpkin pie spice and your desired amount of sweetener and mix all of it together with a spoon. Transfer mixture into a large zip lock bag (cut one of the bottom corners off so that you can easily make "drops") and drop small amounts onto a sheet of parchment paper. Freeze for 20 minutes. Use a resealable container for leftovers!
