Autumn Means Baking With Apples
Autumn means apples piling up from my Auntie Cosettes tree in her backyard. This year I decided to put some of those apples to good use. It's one of the true pleasures of the season, biting into a fresh apple (from the garden to the kitchen) before it's had a chance to dehydrate or grow mealy. (Remember, it's not just our stomach, but our mouth too that we need to satisfy. sometimes compulsive eating is more a nervous urge simply to ingest and to chew than actual hunger.) And apples are easy on the calorie count.
What follows are three of my favorite Autumn recipes featuring apples.
