One of my favorite aspects of the Fall season is the abundance of apples. I've mentioned before on this blog, that anything with apples and walnuts will comprise the dessert of my choice. You see now why the apple season has it's appeal for me.

Apples...burgundy, red, yellow and the green of the Granny Smith represent Autumn and the fun of creating many different recipes.

Here is a delicious one that I am sure you will enjoy. I add chopped walnuts on top of it all before baking. It is so good served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. I would have baked it to photograph it, but I only do that on special occasions when I know I can share it with others. It just does not work for my husband and I to sit and devour the entire pan:) If you stop over...I will make it and we can share.

I simply had to share this picture that I found in a past issue of "Southern Lady" magazine. It is okay to dream...right?

Another quick and good tasting recipe for apples is the "apple dipper" recipe;
Blend equal parts of peanut butter and caramel sundae topping. Dip apple wedges in the mixture. Then sprinkle with chopped peanuts.

I find life presents me many opportunities to "go out on a limb". What about you?
Wishing you moments to enjoy the fruits of this beautiful season.

~thanks to my uncle for the first two apple pictures and to our friend Rick for capturing the squirrel picture on the top right of the blog.

Love your header!
In Houston, our Whole Foods market had 30 or 40 variety of apples for sale. I wished I had enough friend that I could invite each person to bring two types of apples each and we could have an apple sampling party.

I think we would all wind up with Gala still as our first choice though...

Your blog is so cute all dressed up for fall! Thanks for stopping by to see me and for your kind words. We are going up apple picking in two weeks with Mason and his mom and dad. Then I will have to try your yummy recipe and I too like to make things like that when we can share.

Have a wonderful first day of fall!

I also love apples Judy! Every year when my children were at home we'd drive upstate to an apple tree farm and pick a bushel or two. That meant many apples pies and jars of apple butter were made in the following weeks.
