You are going to love these apple recipes! When fall rolls around it's time for apple picking.
When we lived in Maryland, we went apple picking almost every year. It's such a fun family activity! Once you have all those apples, you have to get creative. These apple recipes will give you a lot of ideas!

Have you ever had an apple pie baking cookoff? We hosted a cookoff years ago and it was a blast. Invite some friends to meet you at an orchard for apple picking followed by a pie baking contest.
I loved doing this because it got me in the mode of decorating for fall, which my kids loved. Just adding a pretty fall wreath to my front door got us all in the mood to celebrate a new season!
Each family brings an appetizer or two and their drink of choice. It's such an easy party and perfect for the autumn weather. If you don't live near an orchard, buy a few bags of apples!
Everyone can bring their premade (or bought) pie crust to make it easy. If you don't have a pie crust shield for the edges of your pie, you should definitely pick one up. No more burnt crust!
Once the pies are done, have a blind taste test. Only the hosts will know who made each pie. Have small prizes or a certificate for the winners!
Please let me know if you decide to do this! I want photos!
