  • what to do with Extra Apples.
    My daughter went on a Field Trip last week and picked Apples. I made two Apple pies and a apple crisp and I still have some left.... so I need some ideas for some recipes with apples... Help

    Applesauce? You can make that and freeze it in small jars to use over time.

    Apples are also great sliced on sandwiches with turkey or ham and good cheese.

    apple streudel, turnovers, apple empandadas??

    How about just baked apples. Core them and stuff the center with brown sugar and raisins. Put a pat of butter on top. Bake at 350° until the apples are tender.

    Why not peel, slice and freeze them for later use?

    from the Weight Watchers site.
    Just use the regular pudding and cool whip if you're not counting calories/fat. It's very good with the reduced sugar/fat though. I only add 1/2 of the cool whip and don't add the peanuts. I did put the pineapple juice over my apples first, and then finished the recipe. The apples never did turn, even after 3 days.

    Caramel Apple Salad

    1 (8 ounce) container fat-free cool whip
    4 large apples
    (8 ounce) can pineapple tidbits
    1 box jello fat free sugar-free instant butterscotch pudding mix
    1/4 cup chopped peanuts (optional)

    Cut up apples into small pieces.
    Add in all other ingredients (pineapple juice included) and mix.
    Chill for 1 hour.

    this is a great recipe. I have used this for a couple of years now.

    Apple Streusel Squares

    Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease 9 X 13 pan

    Streusel Topping

    ¾ c flour
    ¾ c chopped pecans
    1/3 c packed brown sugar
    6 Tbs. butter-softened
    2 tsp vanilla
    ¾ tsp. cinnamon

    Mix all of the topping ingredients together, until well blended, put into the fridge.


    2 c flour
    ¼ c sugar
    ¼ tsp. salt
    ½ c butter-cold

    Mix everything together except butter. Cut the butter into the flour mixture using a pastry blender or 2 knives. Pat dough into the prepared pan. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden.


    2 lbs. apples peeled and diced medium
    ½ c craisins
    1/3 c packed brown sugar
    3 Tbs. butter
    ½ tsp. cinnamon

    Cook all of the filling ingredients in a skillet, stirring occasionally for 15 minutes.

    1 Tbs. cornstarch
    2 Tbs. lemon juice

    Mix the 2 into slurry. Quickly adding it to the apple mixture stirring as you add it. This will thicken almost immediately. Pour the apple mixture over the crust spreading it out to cover the crust. Take the topping out of the fridge and break it into small clumps. Spread the clumps over the apples. Bake for 30 minutes until brown on top. Cool completely before cutting.

    Type Ringmaster into Search. On the fourth page you will find recipes for Apple Wedges and also Sundae's.

    I am going to try this coming weekend at a picnic we are having.

    Sounds great!!!
