    What is your favorite recipe using apples?

    Apples are a traditional food for Rosh Hashanah, and I need some new ideas for the holiday.

    I have 4 favourite "apple" recipes but I do not know if they are suitable for your celebration. One is apple tart, ie pastry, with apples cooked inside it, the 2nd is Eve's pudding, which is stewed apples covered by a sponge and baked, the third is Apple Charlotte, which is stewed apples layered with breadcrumbs and baked and the fourth one is apple crumble, which is stewed apples covered by the dry pastry ingredients (before adding water) and again, baked in the oven.
    If you like the idea of any of these, let me know and I'll get a recipe.

      Oh, an apple tart is a nice idea. And Eve's pudding sounds appropriate thematically! Thank you for the suggestions.

      I think the apple crumble is what I was thinking of when I said coffee cake.  I have to ask my mother.  What ever it is, it's good stuff.  smile

    Apples are big in Croatia too - it's one of the country's few export goods.  The recipe that comes to mind is my Pasrate - Fritule which are apple fritter balls made with cream of wheat and fruity batter.  This includes plenty of grated apples, raisins and walnuts (optional) -but  lemon and orange rind, rum and vanilla are highly recommended. 

    If you want the recipe, it's listed as one of my Hubs.  Happy Rosh Hashanah, by the way!  It's a holiday food for us as well traditionally served on Christmas Eve - or anytime.

      Well, that sounds delicious, Euro. I think I'll check out your Hub. And thank you for the good wishes, too!

      You inspired me to make some, so I did... they usually disappear in 24 hours or less, which I take as a compliment.

    My two all time favorite recipes using apples are my mothers apple coffee cake and her apple pie.

      Hi, I'm just curious why one of my comments was removed?  All I told the lady below was that I think apple crumble might be what I was thinking of instead of apple coffee cake??  How was that bad?

      Faith, I have no idea what happened. Your previous comment got sent to me for moderation, and it just took me a while to figure out how to accept it.

      Weird lol.  My hubpages account acted strange as soon as I posted it.  Must have been a technical issue.  smile

    This may be a new idea for you. It's an apple salad, can be a desert. Very delicious. In a bowl, combine chopped apples, chopped celery, walnuts, and small marshmallows in whipped cream. Make your own whipped cream using heavy cream. I prefer to use the green apples, granny smith because of their tart flavor, leave the peeling on for added flavor and color. Keep refrigerated until ready to use.

      Oh, I bet my children would love that. Whipped cream and marshmallows are two of their favorite ingredients.

      Yes, this is a favorite at my gatherings..these are.ingredients usually not used together.  Children will love this and can help make it too. Please see my hub with this recipe.

    Living in the south, we love our fried apple pies. I make them at home with canned biscuits and apple pie filling. Yum!

      You know, I didn't even know it was possible to make those at home! Of course, I've never had a real one, just the Hostess fruit pies.

      I would love try this, do you have the recipe?

    I love to slice apples and eat them with cheese. But that's not a recipe. So I'd have to say apple pie is my favorite recipe to use them. If I'm in too much of a hurry to make a pie, I make an apple crisp with slices apples and a topping of oats, flour, sugar, butter and spices. It's even more delicious served with cinnamon ice cream or real whipped cream. Yum!

      Mmmmm, apple crumble with cinnamon ice cream sounds like a fantastic combination. Unfortunately, I've never seen cinnamon ice cream! Where do you get it?

      I think Haagen Dazs used to make it, but I make it at home using a recipe for vanilla ice cream. I just add a teaspoon of Saigin cinnamon. I have an ice cream maker. :   )

      Look on the internet, Bunny.  I had cinnamon ice cream (maybe it's a novelty flavor) and it was really good.  Bet it's not too hard either.

    Great time of year to be thinking of apples.  The arrival of beautiful fall fruit makes me think applesauce.  Check out my recipe at http://theliz.hubpages.com/hub/Simple-H … Applesauce
    Let me know when you try it!

    My favorite is "Cut Fresh Apples." You just get a knife and cut an apple into wedges.  If you cut your finger and it bleeds all over the apples, it's an excellent source of protein.

    I have many and one is Apple and Spinach Salad with Thyme-Dijon Vinaigrette. And when fresh cherries are in you can add them to the salad. Also I like Apple Mango and Radish Salad with sour cream, horseradish and fresh dill dressing.
