These Caramel Iced Apple Cinnamon Rolls are a recipe cheat and lip smacking delicious. My grandson said these were the best cinnamon rolls he ever ate. 

Our Apple Stuffed Pork Loin is also paired with cabbage for a delicious Fall meal we all love. It’s hearty and stick-to-the-ribs delicious.

These Apple Pork Chops are prepared in the Crockpot and glazed with maple syrup. This recipe is only three ingredients for an easy Fall recipe using fresh apples.

I very much enjoy cooking with Crescent rolls especially to create a Fall dessert. I call this recipe Crescent Apple Cinnamon Rolls and there is caramel drizzle involved. The apples are fresh so trust me, it’s crazy good.

You can make a yummy Fall dessert using canned biscuits and fresh apples too. See how I made this one called Upside Down Skillet Caramelized Apple Pecan Biscuits. These are gone in one sitting with a few folks to share them with.  

These Homemade Crescent Apple Turnovers are a family favorite. I think my hubby looks forward to these during apple season more than anything else. 

Another good recipe cheat for an apple dessert using fresh apples is this Apple Cinnamon Roll Coffee Cake. Invite someone over to enjoy this one with you.

Ingredients for making a Baked Apple Crisp dessert

Ingredients for the Baked Apple Crisp Filling

6 large apples, cored, peeled, and sliced
1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1/3 Cup real maple syrup
2 Tbsp. 100% apple juice (sugar free)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp ground allspice
1½ tsp fresh thyme leaves
¼ tsp salt

Baking Apple Suggestions

Not every apple is created equal when it comes to baking. You want an apple that holds up well without becoming mushy. It also needs to maintain is delectable apple flavor. We recommend using; Granny Smith, Pink Lady or Honey Crisp apples.

My personal favorite is Honey Crisp. We can always find really large one’s at The Fresh Market.

Ingredients for Baked Apple Crisp Topping

For the Gluten free version of our Baked Apple Crisp recipe, we are using almond flour and even adding in some almonds to the oat topping.

Making The Oat Topping

Combine all of the topping ingredients into a separate bowl and stir until oats are thoroughly coated and all ingredients are well combined. Set aside for later.

Baking the Apple Crisp

Grease a square baking dish. You can line your pan with baking parchment paper if desired. I love using parchment paper because of the easy clean up. An 8 x 8 pan is perfect. Preheat the oven to 350°.

Now pour your apple crisp mixture into the prepared baking pan and spread evenly across the pan.

Time to add the topping. Spread the oat topping evenly across the apple mixture.

Place into pre-heated oven and bake for about 30 minutes.

If the top layer is nicely browned, cover dish loosely with aluminum foil to prevent over-browning. Continue baking for another 15-20 minutes or until you see the apple crisp is bubbling.

Remove from oven. Cool completely. I like to set the pan on a cooling rack which allows air to circulate underneath so it cools quicker. Don’t you want a little taste while it is still warm! I can’t resist.
