Sauteed Apples

Get soft, cooked apples by sautéing them in butter with brown sugar and cinnamon until tender and delicious. The syrup from the apples is great on homemade waffles. You may add raisins to the sauce if desired.

Recipe from AllRecipes



  • ¼ cup butter


  • 4 large tart apples - peeled, cored and sliced 1/4 inch thick


  • ½ cup cold water


  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch


  • ½ cup brown sugar


  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon




  1. Melt butter in a large skillet or saucepan over medium heat; add apples and cook, stirring constantly, until almost tender, 6 to 7 minutes.

  2. Mix water and cornstarch together in a small bowl until cornstarch is dissolved; pour over apples. Stir in brown sugar and cinnamon. Bring to a boil for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and serve warm.


Pumpkin Pie Bread

This pumpkin bread is simply seasoned with pumpkin pie spice — really, it needs no other adornment -- and it bakes up very moist. "This quick bread recipe tastes like pumpkin pie," says Tanja Miller. "Tastes best when served the next day."


  • 3 ½ cups all-purpose flour


  • 2 teaspoons baking soda


  • 1 teaspoon baking powder


  • 3 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice


  • 1 teaspoon salt


  • 3 cups white sugar


  • 1 cup vegetable oil


  • 4 eggs


  • 1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree


  • ½ cup water



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease two 9x5 inch loaf pans. Sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and pumpkin pie spice. Set aside.

  2. In a large bowl, beat together sugar, oil, eggs, and pumpkin. Stir in flour mixture alternately with water. Divide batter evenly between the prepared pans.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 60 to 70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. For best flavor, store wrapped in plastic wrap at room temperature for a full day before serving.


If we’re not putting apple butter in our cocktail, are we even October-ing? The answer would!


  • orange wedges for the glass

  • 1/2 cinnamon + 1 tablespoon sugar for the rim

  • 3 tablespoons apple butter

  • 2 ounces bourbon

  • pinch of cinnamon

  • 4 to 6 ounces chilled ginger ale or ginger beer

  • fresh figs for garnish



  • Rim your glass with a wedge of citrus. I like orange but lemon or lime work too! Stir together the cinnamon and sugar on a plate. Dip the rim in the cinnamon sugar.

  • Fill a shaker glass with ice. Add the apple butter, bourbon and a pinch of cinnamon. Shake well for 30 seconds. Pour the mixture into the glass. Fill the glass with ginger ale or ginger beer and serve!
