Kid-Friendly Apple Recipes

0

You did the orchard trip, ate the donuts, took the obligatory pictures, and hauled the apples home. Now what? I always end up with leftover apples and try to think of ways to enjoy them before they go bad. Here are 3 recipe ideas to try this Fall. Your littles should even be able to join in on the fun!

3 Minute Apple Pie

This recipe is quick, easy but tastes like dessert. An older child could easily help with some of these steps.

What you need:

2 apples

½ cup cream cheese

½ tsp cinnamon

½ tsp brown sugar

½ tsp white sugar

12 graham crackers

Directions:

  1. Chop up the apples into small pieces and place in a bowl.
  2. Sprinkle cinnamon and both sugars over apples.
  3. Microwave apples for 1 minute. Stir and microwave for 1 more minute.
  4. Spread cream cheese onto the graham cracker and add a scoop of apples.
  5. Enjoy!

Apple Dippers

This is a fun twist on an old classic. Apples were made to be dipped, but add in a stick and an extra topping or 2 and you have something special on your hands.

What you need:

1 apple (sliced)

8 skewers

1 cup vanilla yogurt

1 tbsp honey

½ tsp cinnamon

Directions:

  1. Add apple slices to skewers. Be careful with sharp points.
  2. Drizzle honey and sprinkle cinnamon over yogurt.
  3. Enjoy!

I went a healthier route and chose to make a simple yogurt dip, but check out this adorable “DIY Apple Dipper Bar for some more decadent ideas. I think this would be such a fun play date/party activity! http://www.laurenslatest.com/apple-dippers-bar/

Hot Cider Spice Pouch

There’s something that feels grown up about assembling your very own spice blend to add to your mug of hot cider. This would be fun on a cooler Fall day.

What you need:

apple cider

coffee filters

cinnamon sticks

cloves

ginger

orange rind

Directions:

  1. In a coffee filter, add the spices of your choice.
  2. Tie with string and steep in a hot cup of cider.

Fall is such a nostalgic time for me. I love our annual trips to pick apples, choose pumpkins to decorate, I love the whole thing! Let’s hear it, what’s your family’s favorite way to enjoy apples?
