If you’ve got apples on your mind, you have come to the right place. Here is a bushel of our favorite recteq recipes for all the apples you can gather.

Apple Pie

It’s a classic for good reason and there really isn’t anything better than a golden-crusted, hot homemade apple pie.

The smoke, spices, and sweet fruity flavors with a touch of Chef John’s Soul Powder Rub come together for dessert perfection. Your whole backyard will smell like Fall with this fantastic recipe. Don’t forget to pick up some vanilla ice cream to top this masterpiece off.

Apple Betty

Cinnamon, Maple Syrup, and a twist of orange make this Apple Betty recipe a perfect tribute to Autumn! Relying on pre-made granola, cinnamon, and maple syrup, the entire recipe can come together in just a few minutes and is baked directly on the grill in a cast iron skillet. A rustic look and a decadent taste make this fall dessert truly memorable.

Savory Stuffed Cornish Game Hens

Here’s an upscale recipe that will turn out picture-perfect. For Savory Stuffed Cornish Game Hens, you get a simple start with premade stuffing mix, tart Granny Smith apples, and a generous measure of Colden’s Freakin’ Greek Rub.
