An easy way to get your apple a day, these 10 takes are perfect for celebrating the return of fall flavors - both savory and sweet.

Apple Cake

"This is a wonderfully easy and tasty dessert. I especially like the fact that it isn't overly sweet. I'd planned on serving it with whipped cream, but we didn't get that far!"

-Diana #2

Butternut Apple Casserole

"A nice fall side dish that goes well with pork or turkey. For a variation, substitute pears for the apples."

Apple Mulligatawny

A nice blend of sweet and savory, this curry-based soup proves that apples aren't just for dessert.

Awesome Apple Crisp

Every baker needs a classic apple crisp recipe. Don't forget the scoop of vanilla ice cream for the perfect finishing touch.

Pretty in Pink Applesauce

"The delicious, clear apple taste is accented with a little nutmeg, a nip of lemon and a bit of cranberry juice. Use the apple peelings to make the applesauce thick (and remember to dig them out before serving)."


Crunchy Chicken Apple Salad Sandwich

These sandwiches are perfect for a light lunch but still pack a lot of flavor. Use tart apples like Granny Smith and mix in nuts for a little something extra.

Spicy Apple Pancake/Fritters

You'll never make pancakes out of a box again. Get creative with your toppings -- peanut butter, honey or classic maple syrup all go well with the spiced apple base.
