When Fall begins everyone seems to be pumpkin crazy, but not me. While I do like pumpkin, I like apples even more! A few of my favorite apple dishes are Cinnamon Applesauce, Apple Butter Cookies, and Apple Breakfast Cake. If you’re not familiar with using apples for cooking or baking then you might not know that there are certain kinds of apples to use for different recipes – not all apples taste the same!
