Apple-Pecan Bourbon-Caramel Pie

Apple pie and pecan pie: two world-famous classics. But let's be honest, one's a little wholesome and the other's a little too sweet. You know which is which. But what if we combine them into a single pie with an apple filling and pecan bourbon-caramel top "crust"? And what if we told you it's easier to make and assemble than either of the originals? This may be the greatest pie mashup ever. More

Domino's CinnaStix Apple Crisp

The combination of apples and cinnamon is a classic with good reason. It has a comforting warmth from autumnal spices and the hearty, tart apples. To fast foodify the dish, we turned to Domino's' CinnaStix: a bready, pizza dough byproduct topped with cinnamon and sugar and accompanied by a small well of sticky-sweet icing for optimal dunkage. Here, we balance the sweetness of our CinnaStix topping with a tart, boozy apple base. More

Apple Strudel

This classic Austrian dessert of tender apples and raisins stuffed inside a flaky dough is simpler to make than meets the eye. All it takes is a paper thin unleavened dough and a clean cloth to roll it with. This step-by-step recipe shows you how it's done. More

The Best Squash Lasagna

Roasted squash and sage are classic fall and winter flavors. I wanted to find the best way to incorporate them into a rich, creamy lasagna. The result—after a bit of tweaking and testing, of course—was a squash lasagna with intense, rich, sweet squash flavor balanced with chunks of sage-scented browned squash and apple, all layered with a creamy Gruyère white sauce and layers of tender pasta.

Baked Apples With Oat Crumble From 'Huckleberry'

The combination of baked fruit, vanilla, and brown sugar found in this recipe from Huckleberry is absolutely intoxicating. And it's truly simple to put together—chances are, the ingredients are already in your pantry. An oat and wheat flour crumble is cut with a generous amount of butter and brown sugar, and sprinkled over cored, halved apples of your choosing. They end up soft and fragrant, with plenty of crumb to cover. More

Cider-Braised Country-Style Pork Ribs With Creamy Mashed Potatoes

Containing a mix of light and dark meat, country-style pork ribs braise well, yielding tender meat that both flavors and absorbs the liquid they cook in. With that in mind, I built mine from rustically cut nubs of carrot, celery, onion and garlic, plus burnished tomato paste -- prepped in the same Dutch oven that's used to brown the pork. Then, the pan is deglazed with white wine, cider vinegar, chicken stock and apple cider and spiked with Dijon mustard and aromatics. After a time spent in a low oven, the whole shebang is served atop creamy mashed potatoes. More

Gluten-Free Apple Fritters

Apple fritters should not be jelly doughnuts in which the jam is merely replaced with an apple filling. No, an apple fritter is a nubby affair with crisp bits of chopped apples scattered throughout and just the slightest hint of confectioner's glaze. Gluten-free fritters can be tough to make, but as it turns out, size matters. Our small fritters come out with the ideal ratio of crisp fried exterior to apple-packed crumb. More
