Easy & Fun Apple Recipes

Updated: Sep 29, 2021

When autumn is here all my senses scream apples, pumpkins and cinnamon. Since we get apples pretty much all through the year now, it’s time to look at them differently! Here are 4 easy and fun apple recipes that I hope you’ll love and of course try as well. 


Caramel Cream Cheese Spread with Apples 

Who knew apples and cheese were a match made in heaven? This apple recipe is super easy and quick for an autumn date night paired with some wine.

Ingredients  

There really aren’t any measurements to this recipe!

Cream Cheese (I used D’lecta because it’s the closest to Philadelphia cream cheese but cheaper and easily available)

Caramel Sauce (You could use a store-bought version but I used a homemade recipe)

Apples sliced thin

Instructions  

Step 1. On a serving plate of your choice take out the cream cheese from the container, holding its original shape (just for presentation purposes, because we like it pretty)

You could also take out your cream cheese in a cute bowl.

Step 2. Pour over some caramel sauce for that sweet balance to the cream cheese.

Step 3. Spread on some apple slices and sip on some wine! Easy-peasy!


Apple Pie Samosas 

Here is where the Indian girl in me was like “How can I make apple pie desi?” Bam! Apple Pie Samosas. The perfect mix of an American autumn mixed with an Indian one. Turns out I wasn’t the only person who had thought about this recipe, there are so many versions on Pinterest. Here is my version of this apple recipe. Enjoy!

Ingredients (Makes 10 Samosas) 

For the apple pie filling

1 large apple (peeled and cut into tiny cubes)

Juice of half a lime

1 tbs brown sugar

½ tsp cinnamon powder

4 tbs water

For the samosa wrappers

I used store bought

Flour and water paste to stick the edges of the wrappers

Vegetable Oil for frying

Instructions  

Step 1. To make the filling, add the apples to a bowl with the lime juice and mix.

Step 2. In a pan over medium heat, add apples mixed in lime juice, brown sugar, cinnamon powder and water.

Step 3. Bring mixture to a boil.

Step 4. Once the mixture comes to a boil, reduce heat and let it simmer stirring occasionally around 15 minutes or until the mixture has thickened and the water has evaporated slightly. (Mixture shouldn’t be runny) 

Step 5. Let the mixture cool and then add a spoonful at a time to the samosa wrapper. Seal the edges with the flour mixture. (The samosa wrapper packet shows you a super easy way to fold the samosas)

Here is how I did it!

Step 6. Deep fry in vegetable oil until golden brown on each side.

You could serve this with some ice cream or dip them in some caramel sauce. This apple recipe is my favourite one so far!


Apple Grilled Cheese Sandwich  

This apple recipe combination may sound strange but I promise you it’s a whole new level of grilled cheese.

Ingredients  

Bread (any kind you like, I used a loaf that is thicker than sliced bread, our local grocery store sells it) 

Cheese (the good kind, cheddar and gouda go well with apples. If you can’t get the good kind easily, try D’lecta Melto cheese, it’s a local product that makes cheddar cheese as well)

Apples (peeled and sliced thin)

Butter

Instructions  

Step 1. Spread butter on the outside and inside of each slice of bread.

Step 2. Evenly layer the cheese and apples on the bottom half and add the top half to close.

Step 3. Heat a pan over medium heat.

Step 4. Place the sandwiches, one at a time onto the hot pan and cook until the cheese is melted.  

For that extra UMPH add some bacon to your apple grilled cheese!
