It’s September and here in Washington the apples are in season. That means there are plenty to be had for all your favorite recipes. I love to wash, peel, slice and core them, then toss them in a bath of citric acid and water to keep them from turning brown and freeze them to use later.

Here are 12 great apple dessert recipes I found while blog hopping to help you use up the fall apple harvest. Do yourself a favor and purchase and apple peeler/slicer/corer. They’re worth every penny. Read the reviews and pick the best one you can afford. Mine is all metal which means if it’s not put away clean and dry it can rust, but it’ll last my lifetime. I’m not sure the plastic models can say the same. Kids LOVE to help with turning the crank.
