Fall means apples! There’s nothing quite like the smell of freshly picked apples, and picking apples yourself is a great way to enjoy the fall. Whether you’re lucky enough to live near a U-Pick apple operation or have to get your apples from the grocery store, this apple pie crepe filling makes a delicious breakfast or dessert option. This easy apple pie filling recipe can also be scaled up to meet all your apple pie filling needs!
When selecting apples for this recipe, don’t be shy about mixing and matching. Use three or four of your favorite crispy varieties to create a complex flavor medley! Avoid naturally soft, mealy apples, though, like red or golden delicious, because they fall apart too easily when cooked. This apple pie filling is delicious as a fruit compote eaten with a fork, but I designed it as a filling for my
easy, foolproof crepe recipe. Edit: Unfortunately, the crepe recipe was lost. Now I’ve learned my lesson and have a backup service! Hopefully I”ll have the chance to recreate it one of these days.
How simple is that? This recipe takes less than 20 minutes from start to finish and is the perfect way to mix up your Sunday breakfast routine or have a not too unhealthy dessert. The hardest part is actually peeling, coring, and cutting the apples. I’m a notoriously horrible peeler (my family has always accused me of creating square potatoes when I peel them!). If you peel/cut like me and enjoy apples, you might want to get an apple peeler. They’re super affordable!
As I’ve already noted above, this makes a great dessert all by itself without crepes! It also goes really well on oatmeal – trust me. 🙂
What’s your favorite way to enjoy apples? Do you have a very favorite fall produce item?
