While we love summer, we must admit we’re glad fall is here. There’s something about the season that just speaks to us (maybe it’s all of the delicious root vegetables). In honor of fall’s arrival, we’re sharing a delicious recipe, prepared by the culinary team at Plated.
British culinary master Michel Roux Jr.'s warm and delicious baked apples are perfect for a Christmas-dessert. Serve hot, with chilled crème fraîche or muscavado sugar ice cream.

These Cinnamon Baked Apples are almost too healthy to be true. With no added sugar, the natural sugars of the apples are brought to life in the baking process. These are a great, stress-free treat to bake with your significant other.This recipe is provided by Alexandra Miller, RDN, LDN, Corporate Dietitian at Medifast, Inc.
If this pie sounds like a cross between baked apples and apple dumplings, well, it is. It's baked with a top pastry only, which molds itself around the apples so handsomely that I don't even bother to invert the pie, lest the pastry vanish beneath the apples. I use Golden Delicious apples here because they hold their shape well. They’re halved, cored, and placed in the pan in a pool of melted butter, brown sugar, and raspberry preserves. A raisin-brown sugar-walnut mixture is spooned into the hollowed cores, à la baked apples, then the pastry is draped over the top, and the pie is baked. Since this bakes up in individual mounds, you don't slice it like a regular pie. Rather, you scoop out the mounds — which look like halved apple dumplings — and serve them with the pan juices. Excellent alone, but even better with chilled Vanilla Custard Sauce.
This incredible recipe combines two of fall's best ingredients: apples and pumpkin seeds. Serve it either as an appetizer or a side dish, perhaps with some juicy pan-roasted pork chops.

Baked apples are usually stuffed with nuts and sticky-sweet brown sugar or maple syrup. But apples are also delicious with pork, so we’ve gone savory here and stuffed them with toasted walnuts, grilled cipollini onions, sweet sausage, and sage. On the grill, the apples pick up a hint of smoke, which enhances the taste of the sausage. There’s a bit of chopping and mixing, so bring a cutting board to the grill for this one.

It's the official start of fall, and all of our favorite fall traditions, like apple-picking. And there's no better way to kick off fall than with a hot toddy using fall's best apples. Marshall Altier, the bartender behind JBird, whipped up a fall-ready recipe using a bold spirit, Denizen Rum, and bitters using upstate New York apples.
