5 Creative Ways to Use Apples

5 Creative Ways to Use Apples

Are you ready for the holidays? I love holiday shopping and holiday baking. Apples are pretty much a fall baking essential and can even be used for decorating or whipping up delicious snacks! Here are some of my favorite apple-inspired ideas, treats and projects for fall.

Bake Mini Apple Pies

Apple pie is delicious especially in adorable mini form! These personal apple pies are just as easy to make as a standard pie — just more bite-sized and perfect for holiday dinner guests! Simply whip up a batch of pie crust dough, mix together apple pie filling and make your mini apple pies in a muffin tin.

Decorate with Apple Candles

Apple candles are a fun way to personalize your buffet table and add some simple fall decorations around your home. Cut a circle in the top of the apple, scoop out a round section of the apple and insert a tea light. Simple and gorgeous!

Make Homemade Apple Cider

Making homemade pressed apple cider is a fun family activity for a fall afternoon. If you have apple trees in your yard, apple cider is an easy way to fully enjoy your whole harvest of apples. We found an old cider press secondhand. Kids will enjoy making homemade apple cider with mom and dad’s help.
