October is finally here and for us that means only one thing: it’s apple season! Nothing goes better with cold weather than a rich, sweet apple dish to sink your teeth into. And while there’s nothing more American than apple pie, this year we thought we’d try something a little different, so check out our top non-apple pie fall treats:
This scrumptious-looking dish takes only an hour to make and is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser. Equally perfect with a morning cup of coffee or after a tasty homemade meal, you’re sure to fall in love with this easy dessert. See the recipe here.
These chips are a great healthy alternative to traditional corn chips and make a perfect snack for kids or pair well with dips at dinner parties. The best part about this recipe is that unlike similar recipes, there’s no dehydrator required, you can just use a regular oven. See the recipe here.
I love anything that can be made in a slow cooker and this delicious condiment is no exception. It couldn’t be easier to make, simply toss in all the ingredients and let the machine do the work. This spiced, decadent butter is great on biscuits, toast, oatmeal, or anything you’d put butter on, with an autumn twist that will leave you craving more. See the recipe here.
You’ve heard of the bloomin’ onion, now try the bloomin’ apple. A beautiful, intriguing take on the traditional baked apple. A decadent dessert that can be topped many ways to your liking. See the recipe here.
A delicious concoction using wine, brandy, spices, and of course, fresh apples. This flexible treat can be made with either red or white wine and is easy enough to prepare. A great holiday cocktail for friends and family. See the recipe here.
I know I said no apple pies, but these aren’t your grandma’s apple pie! These goodies more closely resemble turnovers and are just the right size to keep you wanting one more. Overall this delicious fry pie only takes 50 minutes to make and serves six, so don’t keep ’em to yourself! See the recipe here.
This awesome apple creation actually contains a whole apple inside that delicious looking crust and is drizzled with sweet caramel sauce. It’s basically a caramel apple and an apple pie rolled into one amazing dish that’s way easier to make than a normal pie. Since each “bomb” is its own serving you can adjust the recipe to make as many or as few as you’d like. See the recipe here.
We’ve covered sweet, but savory dishes are where apples show off their subtle flavors. Apples and sausage are a classic pairing for a reason: they go great together. And since there’s only one pan used, it’s great for weeknight dinners. See the recipe here.

Is it Halloween yet? These gothic treats are the perfect way to spice up your haunted house. They’re a great take on a traditional dessert that kids and grownups are bound to love. See the recipe here.
10. Salted Caramel Apple Bread Pudding
“Salted Caramel Apple” is a phrase I could hear over and over without getting sick of it… add that to bread pudding and you have a seriously dangerous combination. This gooey, traditional treat is dense, rich, and satisfying, so save room! See the Recipe Here.
