Bobbing for apples is one way to get a taste of their crunchy goodness this October, but we think they taste better served up in a delicious dessert. This month Renaissance Place Apartments Blog is bringing members of our community here in Williamsville, NY apple- and pumpkin-based recipes to try out. Invite folks over for dinner and feature one of these desserts.

Apple-Based Dessert Recipes

Apple Cider Cream Pie from Food & Wine

A creamy and luscious pie infused with apple cider! For the crust: flour, cornstarch, sugar, salt, unsalted butter, cold milk, and apple cider vinegar. For the filling and topping: apple cider, sugar, sour cream, salt, eggs, heavy cream, and cinnamon. Apples never tasted so good!

Apple Tart with Almond Cream

“The thin, crisp pastry shell is filled with a layer of almond cream made from both finely ground and coarsely chopped nuts that give the tart layers of texture. The thinly sliced apples on top caramelize as the tart bakes.”

Pumpkin-Based Dessert Recipes

Pumpkin-Gingersnap Tiramisu

This seasonal take on a traditional Italian dessert will blow your mind. This frozen treat is creamy and flavorful with all the spices of ginger snap cookies and pumpkin pie.

Pumpkin Breakfast Cookies from Leelalicious

Much like a granola bar, these healthy pumpkin cookies are perfect for breakfast or an easy on-the-go snack. Not only are they made with whole grain, they are also gluten-free. You will need coconut oil, honey, old-fashioned oats, dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds, ground flaxseed, pumpkin pie spice, sea salt, and pumpkin puree.
