It's fall. The mornings are chilly, the leaves are changing color, and our apples are ripe. We have three apple trees, two granny smith and one fuji (I think). Three trees means a LOT of apples. Obviously we'll eat some of them fresh, and we'll make some apple desserts (pies, crisp, tarts) but this year I wanted to try some new things. I went looking for some non-dessert apple recipes and here are the ones I definitely want to make.

This apple, pecan, and blue cheese salad by The Pioneer Woman. I eat a salad most days for lunch, so I'm always looking for ways to change it up.
These apple and cheddar scones by Smitten Kitchen. I think these would be excellent with a good broccoli cheddar soup.
How about some apple muffins by The Girl Who Ate Everything? Alright, this one leans a little more to the dessert-y side of things, but I've never made apple muffins and these sound delicious.
It might take a little convincing to get my family to try this recipe for shredded brussels sprouts and apples by 101 Cookbooks, but I think it needs to happen.
And I'm pretty much drooling on my keyboard over this recipe for crispy turnovers with apple, bacon, and caramelized onion by The Kitchn. Puff pastry! With apples! And bacon! And optional gouda! I definitely want them with gouda.
Do you have a favorite apple recipe I should try?
