Here are a few recipes to get you started:

Apple Dumplings (serves 8)

•  1 teaspoon ground cinnamon  

•  1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg 

•  2 refrigerated pie crusts 

•  4 apples, peeled, cored and halved 

•  8 teaspoons butter, divided

•  1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar  

•  1 cup water  

•  2 tablespoons butter  

•  1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 

Preheat oven to 500°F. 

Mix cinnamon and nutmeg in small bowl. Sprinkle spice mixture evenly on surface of each pie crust and cut each crust into 4 equal pieces. Place 1 apple half in center of each piece of crust and fill center of each apple half with 1 teaspoon of the butter. Carefully fold crust up over apple half, pinching seams together to seal. Place dumplings, seam-side down, in greased 13x9-inch baking dish. 

Bring sugar, water and 2 tablespoons butter to boil in small saucepan. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla; set aside. 

Bake dumplings about 10 minutes or until crust begins to brown. Reduce temperature to 350°F. Pour sauce over dumplings. Bake 40 to 45 minutes longer or until apples are tender and pastry is golden brown. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream, if desired. 

Brown Butter Apple Crisp (serves 8) 


•  1/4 cup brown sugar  

•  1/4 teaspoon salt 

•  1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 

•  1 tablespoon corn starch 

•  8 apples, cored and sliced 


•  1 cup all-purpose flour 

•  1 cup rolled oats 

•  3/4 cup brown sugar 

•  1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 

•  1/2 teaspoon salt 

•  1 stick unsalted butter 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. 

In a medium bowl, whisk together the brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, and corn starch. Add the sliced apples and mix until fully coated. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt. 

Place a 10-inch cast iron skillet or another deep, oven safe skillet over medium-high heat. Add the butter and swirl around the pan until it starts to turn golden brown, being careful not to let the butter burn. Remove it from the heat and immediately pour the browned butter into the flour mixture, being sure to scrape in all of the browned bits from the bottom of the pan.  Mix together until the butter is fully incorporated and starts to form clumps. Sprinkle over the apples and spread it out until evenly coated. 

Bake for 30 minutes, or until the top has nicely browned and the filling is bubbling. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream, if desired.  

Chocolatey Peanut Butter Dip 

•  1/4 cup creamy peanut butter

•  1 cup frozen fat free whipped topping  

•  1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder 

•  Apple slices, pretzels, etc. (for dipping)

In medium bowl, combine peanut butter, whipped cream, and cocoa powder. Mix well and serve.
