Fall: The Season Of Apples

I grew up in the upper Midwest where the fall season ushered in cooler temperatures resulting in the canvasing of hills with colorful leaves on trees, and the associated harvest time; a welcome time of year in this the area.

During the Autumn harvest months of September and October, we would visit an apple farm to pick apples and make all sorts of wonderful home-made desserts afterwards. Walking in the orchard with an enormous straw basket, kids in tow, and hunting for the perfect tree blessed with branches over abundant with round, crisp apples was a mecca for our family.

Now living in South Florida, we do not get to experience the beauty of the Fall season changes through leaves, but we do have the enjoyment of apples. If one cannot take advantage of the u-pick farms, the farmer's markets do have a good variety of fresh, farm grown apples to choose from in making a fall dessert recipe.

Recently, my husband, the cook in the family, was watching a Martha Stewart show featuring an apple pizza during the cooking section of the program. He is always looking for new recipes to try and this one caught his fancy. He loves apples and the recipe called for simple ingredients, which he had in the home at the time. He improvised and substituted on the recipe, but the credit for this delicious apple creation goes to John Barrielli, baker and author of "SoNo Baking Company Cookbook". To make a long story short, I was pleasantly surprised with the results and cannot say enough about how scrumptious this is as a dessert.

Granny Smith Apple History and Trivia

Granny Smith apples originated in Australia in 1868. They are named after Maria Ann Smith, who propagated these delicious apples (the cultivar) from a chance seedling. The fruit has a hard, light green, thick skin and a crisp, juicy white flesh.

Today, these apples are grown in Australia, Europe, South America and the United States. They grow best in warmer climates where the sunshine is abundant. Eastwood, New South Wales, a suburb of Sydney, Australia holds an annual Granny Smith Festival in the fall, usually in October, to celebrate the provision of prosperity for the land owners.

They go from being yellow to turning completely green, which is similar to the color of spring grass. They are eaten raw and used in pie and dessert recipes. Eaten raw, with skin, this apple benefits the human body by providing healthy carbohydrates, antioxidants, fiber, protein, minerals and energy. (source: Wikipedia.org)

In general, apples help to lower cholesterol, control weight and regulate blood sugar. They contain much needed vitamins such as A and C, as well as small amounts of iron (held within the skin). Some people like to peel their apple before eating, but eating it with the skin on provides the most nutritional value to the body. As they say, an apple a day keeps the doctor away!

Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cups Whole wheat flour, or all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp Turbinado sugar, or regular sugar
  • 1 tsp Kosher sea salt, or coarse salt
  • 1 cup Cold unsalted butter cut in small pieces
  • 1/4 cup Ice water
  • 1/2 cup Home-made Applesauce, or store bought brand
  • 6 apples ;peel, core, halve and cut into 1/8" slices
  • 5 tbs Unsalted butter, melted
  • 5 tbs Confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 cup Apricot jam
  • 1 scoop whipped cream (optional), or yogurt, cheese slice or ice cream.

Instructions (Source: SoNo Baking Company Cookbook)

  1. Using a food processor bowl (or in a large bowl), combine the flour, sugar, and salt.
  2. Add butter and pulse until mixture resembles coarse crumbs, about ten seconds (can use hand mixer, just takes a little more effort).
  3. With the machine still running, add ice water in a slow, steady stream until dough just comes together. Dough should not be wet or sticky. If dough is too dry and doesn't hold together, add a little more water.
  4. Turn dough out onto a clean work surface and shape into a flattened disk; wrap with plastic wrap. Chill at least 1 hour before using.
  5. On a lightly floured work surface, roll out dough to a 16 X 11 inch rectangle, trim if necessary, and transfer to a large baking sheet. Prick dough all over with a fork. Transfer to refrigerator; chill for 30 minutes.
  6. Preheat oven to 425 degrees with a rack set in the middle.
  7. Pour applesauce onto center of dough; spread evenly over dough with a spatula, leaving a 1/2 inch border all around. Arrange apple slices on top of applesauce in three tight rows down the length of the dough, using two apples per row. Brush with melted butter and brush heavily with confectioners' sugar.
  8. Bake, rotating the baking sheet two-thirds of the way through the baking time, until golden brown, about 50 minutes. Transfer to wire rack.
  9. Meanwhile, heat jam in a small saucepan over low heat until warm, strain through a mesh strainer. Brush jam over warm pizza. Using a pizza wheel, cut into squares and serve. Enjoy!

      Susan, I would not have believed the great taste of this apple in desserts unless I had tasted this recipe. Try it soon!

      Mville, this is a good dessert to start with, but even just eating an apple is a good beginning.

      North Wind, how funny! I hadn't thought of the visual picture this title would give people.

      Hi teaches.

      Thank for the interesting history lesson. I always thought they were planted by Johnnie Appleseed (pretty nieve huh? I don't know which apples he planted but thought all the apple tree's planted in North America came from him.)

      The photo makes my mouth water.

      God bless you.

      Hi teaches,

      What a gorgeous tantalizing recipe with Granny Smiths - my fav apples!!

      I love apple crumble as my favourite apple desert but this is a definite winner to try!! Is confectioners sugar like icing sugar? In the photo it looks the same. I've never made a pizza base but this sounds easy so i'l have to give it a go!! Voted up, all the way and shared this informative scrumptious desert!!

      This apple pizza with a dollop of whipped vanilla marscapone sounds like a great dessert, and I have a few Granny's that are crying to be eaten.

      My favourite apple recipes have to be cakes. A fresh apple cake warm from the oven, perhaps with a small scoop of vanilla bean ice cream or a dollop of thick vanilla cream can't be beaten!

      My mouth is watering.. thank you for sharing this apple desert recipe! Years back, when I was watching what I ate and losing weight, I found that if you sectioned half a large green apple or a whole small one, sprayed with I can't believe it's not butter, put it in the oven for a bit, sprinkled with a bit of cinnamon and sweetener- it came out with the apples soft and sweet, tasting just like apple pie. I hate that I rarely eat apples anymore.. your hub inspires me.. Thank you!

      I too grew up in a northern area where crisp autumn days meant a great harvest of apples - now I'm in one of the hotter states but we can still get those wonderful Granny Smith apples - you have chosen a great way to use them - pizza now brings up more than just visions of tomato sauce and cheese - yours is a great alternative - B.

      Just the picture of the green apples got me excited for this recipe. I've been an apple lover since I was a child. We had a Haralson Apple tree at our home on the lake. I would climb that tree almost everyday, just to get my favorite taste of the tart apple. I have heard of apple pie desserts and how nummy they are. I cannot wait to try this recipe. I live in Minnesota and make a weekly trip to 'Dumas Apple Orchard.' I look forward to fall every year. Voted up and hit many buttons.

      I am in Cleveland, OH smack dab in apple country. Granny Smiths are great for baking because of both flavor and texture. This sounds like a fun recipe to try. :)

      Voted up, useful, awesome, interesting and wishing I could add yummy! New York apples are exported to places like Asia, Central America, the UK, India, Russia and other countries all year, and lucky for us, this is apple picking season in the Hudson Valley. Next apple picking session will includ e Granny Smith's!

      ChitrangadaSharon, I love fresh fruit desserts also. It is so much better for your body but also the flavor is unbeatable!

      Paula, Granny Smiths are perfect for baking as they give a sweet tart taste to dessert. This makes the recipe here so good!

      Mdscoggins, it is time for apple recipes again, isn't it? I am going to try and make this one FRiday for a get together. Cooler weather has its benefits!

      Tillsontitan, you make me want to head north to the Hudson VAlley to pick those sweet apples! Thanks for your visit and comment.
