14 Best Apple Recipes (Beyond Pie)

We’ve rounded up our best apple recipes that aren’t just pie. Of course we included a pie, but here’s a favorite collection of recipes that champion the use of apples in both sweet and savory dishes. Enjoy these all season long.

1. Cinnamon Apple Baked Donuts

These yummy morsels are bite-sized and baked, not fried. They’re somewhat akin to a mini muffin without a center. Thus, a big plate of these counts as a very worthy breakfast.

These crispy, creamy, apple-y bites are deliciously savory. Perfect for party appetizers throughout the entire fall season (and beyond.)
