Is there any fruit quite so versatile as the humble apple? Apples don't have the haunting aroma of a fresh peach. They're not as elegant as a bowl of fresh-picked raspberries.

Apple Cheesecake Bars - Crazy for Crust
Apple Cheesecake Bars Recipe ~ Says: The crust on these bars is a combo of Nilla Wafers and Graham Crackers. It gives the bars so much depth! Then it’s topped with an amazing cheesecake mixture (do you use sour cream in your cheesecakes? I almost always do, I think it gives such a creamy, delicious texture!) and apples with cinnamon and sugar. And there’s crumble... the perfect Fall dessert!
Old-Fashioned Apple Cake with Brown Sugar Frosting
This cake is an old, old favorite of ours. It's a cake where the whole is definitely more than the sum of the parts. The moist, semi-chunky cake, spread with the frosting equivalent of brown sugar fudge, is perfect served with a cup of coffee or, better still, a glass of ice-cold milk. Our thanks to the wonderful Bakery Lane Soup Bowl cookbook for the inspiration for this recipe.
