The Apple of My Eye

Apple picking is the quintessential autumn activity. Apple orchards and pumpkin patches are the places to be in September and October. This past weekend, I went apple picking at Brooksby Farm with Jack. Of course we got way more apples than we could ever need, just like we did last year, but it gives me an excuse to bake. Last year we did this same thing, and you can read my post about it, here! 

We actually made less than we did last year, but we used the same recipes because we loved how it turned out last year. We still have about 50 apples left, so we may actually bake some more- at least I want to!

This year we made an apple pie and a caramel apple crisp. We used this recipe to make our apple crisp, and we used the filling from it for the pie as well.

Our baking got a little messy, but I promise, it tasted delicious! If you’re looking for more recipes to enjoy this fall, check out my Pinterest page!

  • You look so cute in these photos and that apple crisp! Oh does it look yummy! I got to go apple picking this past weekend too and it was amazing. I don’t know why apple picking is such a great activity but I can really see now why it’s so quintessentially fall. It’s the perfect activity!
    I didn’t even consider baking with all the apples I have but that would have been a great idea! I just gave mine all away to my roommates who thanked me quite a bit (I don’t know if you’ve ever had Honey Crips apples but they’re amazing).

    • Thank you, Maggie! I absolutely love apple picking/other seasonal activities. Yes- Honey Crisp apples are delicious!
      I’m glad you enjoyed this post! 🙂

  • I’m so bummed I didn’t go picking this year! Now you’ve got me craving apple crisp. So darn good!

    • There’s always next year! The apple crisp was definitely a yummy treat! I love the caramel drizzle we put on top, too!
