Who says you can't eat an apple for breakfast, lunch, and dinner? Biting into one out of hand is easy, yes, but let's shake things up this fall and celebrate apple season by cooking and baking with them instead. From savory salads, soups, and flatbreads to sweet apple pies, turnovers, tarts, and more, apples make a delicious addition to every dish. There are over 750 varieties of apples in the world, and more than 100 types of apples that exist in the United States alone. So when cooking and baking with apples, make sure to choose your varieties carefully: tart Granny Smiths and sweet Cortlands are not always interchangeable.  Here, we have 45 delicious, real simple fall recipes with apples you'll love eating once that chill sets in—and all year long.
