Beyond Apple Pie

You’re sitting on a half bushel of hand-picked Cortlands. The smell is intoxicating. It makes you want to pull out the butter, flour and sugar and whip up an apple pie. You resist, maybe because you don’t have time to peel all those apples and slice them to slivered perfection, maybe because you don’t want to indulge in dessert this week. The temptation to give in to your baking urge is almost destined to lure you in when you have a few free minutes, but before you pull out your knife and rolling pin, take a look at these Guiding Stars apple desserts. We love them, and when you see how much nutritious goodness can be poured into something mouth-watering enough to be called dessert, we think you’ll love them too.
