Especially when you think about all the wonderful pumpkin and apple cakes and pies and cookies. Ohh! The possibilities are endless. Whipping up a batch of any of these goodies fills your home with warmth and comfort.
When Musselman’s contacted me and asked me to put a twist on a classic recipe using apple butter, I jumped at the chance. My apple butter baked brie bites are one of my most popular recipes! I know any recipe with apple butter is a sure fire favorite. One of my favorite fall recipes is Jewish Apple Cake. The perfect pairing for Jewish Apple Cake? Apple Butter and Pumpkin! The perfect twist to this comforting fall classic.
And when your apple store looks like this….you’ll want to make this everyday.
