Granny SmithFujiHoneycrisp, Jonagold, GalaGolden Delicious—there are so many varieties of apples we can’t wait to get our hands on this fall. Part of the magic of apple season is getting to pick your own at the orchard, bringing home basketfuls of fresh, crisp fruit. But even if picking apples isn’t your thing, they’re still everywhere you turn. It’s easy to take home enough apples to cook with all season long in a single trip. That’s why we’ve compiled 30 of our best apple recipes for you to cook this fall. From a non-traditional cumin-and-jaggery-glazed apple pie, to cinnamon maple breakfast polenta with sautéed apples, to cider-braised chicken thighs, we’ve got every sweet and savory category covered. All you have to do is go out and get the apples. We’ve got the rest. – Morgan Goldberg

Apple-Plum Tarts with Rye-Cornmeal Crust

1. Apple-Plum Tarts with Rye-Cornmeal Crust

Start your month of apples with these beautiful, rustic tarts from author Susan Spungen. They have a tender tasty crust made with rye flour and cornmeal. They’re extremely easy on the cook because they can be made ahead at any stage: The dough can be refrigerated for up to 3 days and the unbaked tarts can be assembled and refrigerated overnight. You can even freeze them after you bake them and just reheat before serving.

Apple Ginger Crostata

2. Apple-Ginger Crostata

Food & Wine’s Justin Chapple makes an apple crostata quick and easy by using a sheet of store-bought puff pastry as the base. To give the apples a little boost of flavor, he tosses them with lemon juice and fresh ginger and then brushes the finished tart with apricot preserves.

Braised Chicken with Apples and Calvados

3. Braised Chicken with Apples and Calvados

Chef Matthew Accarrino uses apples, apple cider and the apple brandy Calvados to add layers of flavor to his braised chicken. If that wasn’t enough apple for you, he uses two Granny Smith apples, too. We love this fall chicken dish that’s perfect for an easy weeknight dinner.

Brussels Sprout Slaw with Ginger Gold Apple

4. Brussels Sprout Slaw with Ginger Gold Apple

At Graft Wine + Cider Bar in the Finger Lakes, chef Christina McKeough uses local apples in everything from salads to pie to the tangy mostarda slathered on her smoked-Gouda grilled cheese sandwiches. She loves to use a tart-sweet Ginger Gold in this Brussels sprout slaw for its crisp texture. We love it, too.

Bacon, Fennel and Apple Chutney

5. Bacon, Fennel and Apple Chutney

Chutney is a favorite condiment for everything from cheese to roasts. This sweet-and-smoky versionis made with bacon, fennel and apples and is perfect on top of crackers as a starter, spread on a grilled cheddar sandwich for an upgraded grilled cheese or served with tender roasted pork for a main.

Cumin-and-Jaggery-Glazed Apple Pie

6. Cumin-and-Jaggery-Glazed Apple Pie

Of course, we’re going to hit you with an apple pie recipe, but not the classic one you might think. Cookbook author and chef Asha Gomez’s striking apple pie gets a glossy finish from melted jaggery, a deep amber sugar, and piquant cumin seeds. Save any extra glaze for a last-minute drizzle before serving.

Hot Dogs with Cheddar and Sautéed Apples

7. Hot Dogs with Cheddar and Sautéed Apples

If you like hot dogs (and of course you like hot dogs) then you will love this recipe. If you’ve never tried the combination of cinnamon-y sautéed apples with slices of sharp cheddar cheese, it’s a must this fall.

Apple Caramel Sundaes

8. Apple-Caramel Sundaes

For an easy dessert, Food & Wine’s Justin Chapple takes apples, chops them up and mixes them into a buttery brown sugar caramel that’s perfect for an autumnal ice cream sundae.

Farro with Vinegar-Glazed Sweet Potato and Apples

9. Farro with Vinegar-Glazed Sweet Potato and Apples

This easy weeknight dinner dish practically screams fall. Roasting sweet potatos and apples with a little sherry vinegar and tossing them with farro, dried cherries and roasted cashews makes for a hearty cool-weather dish that you’ll want to keep making all season long

Beet-and-Apple Salad

10. Beet-and-Apple Salad

For the salad at his restaurant, George Mendes uses fresh horseradish and Gegenbauer cider vinegar, a rare Austrian import. But this home version calls for jarred horseradish and supermarket apple-cider vinegar. It makes for a bright, refreshing salad with an extra punch.

Candied Lady Apples

11. Candied Lady Apples

Candied apples make us nostalgic for our childhood, but they were usually so basic back then. We are here to give them an upgrade. Justin Chapple uses tart pomegranate juice to add a pretty rose color and additional flavor to his Candied Lady Apples.

Tuna-and-Apple Crostini

12. Tuna-and-Apple Crostini

This sophisticated take on an open-face tuna sandwich includes sliced tart green apple and a little parsley. It’s light and tasty, plus it’s super easy to make, which makes it the perfect quick appetizer for fall entertaining. We recommend you and your guests try it with a sparkling rosé.

Anise Pork with Figs and Apples

13. Anise Pork with Figs and Apples

The sweet licorice flavor of aniseed or fennel seeds adds depth this pork dish. For the sauce, look for dried figs that are soft and moist. If they seem dry, soften them in hot water before cutting.

Babette Friedman's Apple Cake

14. Babette Friedman’s Apple Cake

Le Coucou chef Daniel Rose stirs apples into the batter of this pound cake–like dessert and then tops it with more of the Calvados-spiked fruit. We think we could eat this cake pretty much each and every day of the fall and be extremely happy. We think you would be too.

Saffron Butter-Basted Poussins with Apples (Joojeh ba Sib)

15. Saffron Butter-Basted Poussins with Apples

Poussins, the tender, juicy little chickens, are ideal for special occasions because you can serve each guest a whole bird. And roasting them with shallots and apples creates an easy and delicious built-in side dish. Try making these for your next dinner party. We guarantee they will be a hit.
