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 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 with the tart Granny Smith for well-founded flavor!
Without further ado, here is the recipe roundup! I usually break my roundup recipes out by type (cookies, pies, etc.), but there are so many different kinds of baked goods here that it didn’t make sense to put them into categories! 😉

Caramel Apple Shortcake
This Caramel Apple Shortcake is cornmeal buttermilk biscuits with caramel baked apples, cinnamon-cardamom whipped cream, and homemade salted caramel sauce!
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!
