Apples reign supreme this time of year, and for good reason! They're so versatile and, at peak flavor, who can resist? In the spirit of all things apple, I've pulled together all The Best Apple Desserts from Live to Sweet in one place for you!
I have a thing for apples, especially in the Fall, so there are quite a few apple recipes on my blog. When I realized how many, I thought that a quick roundup of The Best Apple Desserts was called for!
The Best Apples for Baking
With so many varieties of apple at the store (and the orchard!), which ones are best for baking? First of all, make sure the apples you're choosing are ripe and firm, with no bruising or damage from pests. The best ones will smell lovely, too!
My personal favorite apple varieties for baking are Cortland, Fuji, Gala, Granny Smith, Honeycrisp, and Jonathan. These varieties will hold up well for all your Fall bakes! Keep in mind that some varieties are sweeter than others, so have a taste before baking! My go-to apple combination for pies is the sweet Gala paired with the tart Granny Smith for well-founded flavor!
Without further ado, here is the recipe roundup!
Apple Pie & Tart Recipes
What is Fall without apple pie?? I'm a fan of the classic as much as the next person, but you'll find that each of these recipes has a little twist on the classic apple pie!
Apple Cake & Cupcake Recipes
Apples and apple cider are such a fantastic addition to cakes and cupcakes! That warm, cozy flavor is just what you need in the Fall months!

Last, but definitely not least! These recipes don't fit into a category, but they're not to be missed! The Caramel Apple Shortcake is definitely one of my faves!
So there you have it! I can't wait to add more apple recipes to this list! In the meantime, if you've made one of these recipes, I'd love to hear about it! A quick rating/comment on the recipe itself or a tag on Instagram means the world to me! Happy baking!
