1 Fuji apple peeled and sliced
4-5 tablespoons Sesame Tahini

Dip an apple slice into the room-temperature tahini and enjoy. This is a twist on Dr. Oz's recipe - apple dipped in almond butter. I like both.


1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Stir together the cream cheese, brown sugar, and vanilla extract until the sugar has dissolved, and the mixture is smooth. Dip apple slices, strawberries, or your fruit of choice.


1-2 cans pie filling
1 box yellow cake mix
1 c. chopped nuts
2 sticks melted butter or margarine

Layer as listed above. Bake at 375 degrees for 45-60 minutes. Cook until golden brown.

APPLE LOAF - 6 Servings

2 cups biscuit mix
3/4 c. sugar
1 egg
3 tbsp. vegetable oil
3/4 c. milk
1 c. finely chopped pared apples

Combine biscuit mix and sugar. In a large bowl, combine egg, oil, and milk. Stir in biscuit and sugar mixture. Beat 30-45 seconds. Fold in apples. Turn onto greased 9x5x3 inch pan. Bake in preheated hot 400 degree oven for 35-40 minutes or until done. Serve warm.


1/2 cup chopped almonds
1 cup unsweetened Applesauce
3/4 cup Small-Curd Cottage Cheese
1 tablespoon grated orange peel
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
2 tablespoons sugar

In a 6- to 8-inch frying pan, stir almonds over medium-high heat until golden, about 4 minutes. Pour from pan. In a food processor or blender, whirl applesauce, cottage cheese, orange peel, cinnamon, and nutmeg until smooth; scrape container sides often. Stir in almonds and sugar to taste. Cover and chill at least 2 hours or up to 3 days.

3. Place the saucepan over moderate heat for 5 to 10 minutes, or until the cider is very hot but not boiling.

Easy-to-make caramel apples have many variations: Roll them in chopped nuts, sprinkles, or Oreo crumbles for an extra-special treat.

8 firm red apples
8 chopsticks
1 1/2 Tbsp. vegan margarine
1 1/2 cups light brown sugar
1/4 cup corn syrup
4 Tbsp. water
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract

* Thoroughly wash and dry the apples to remove the wax. (If wax is on the apple, the coating will not stick.) Remove each stem and replace with a chopstick.

* Grease a cookie sheet.

* Melt the margarine in a saucepan. Add the brown sugar, corn syrup, and water. Stir until smooth. Gently bring to a boil and cook for 10 to 15 minutes, or until a little of the caramel forms a firm ball when dropped into a bowl of ice water. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla.

* Swirl the apples in the caramel syrup until coated. Place on the cookie sheet and refrigerate for at least 1 to 2 hours.

Makes 8 servings

For nutty caramel apples, let the caramel harden a bit, then roll the apple in chopped nuts. Sprinkles and crumbled Oreos can also be used.

For "tuxedo" caramel apples, let the caramel harden, then dip the apples into melted dark chocolate, leaving a little caramel showing at the top. Let the chocolate harden a bit. Pour melted vegan white chocolate chips into a sandwich bag. Cut a corner off the bag and squeeze white chocolate swirls onto the apples. Let dry.
