Calling all apple recipes

We went to an apple picking farm yesterday and it was a ton of fun. We dropped off several apples at my in-laws and are left with no less than 6,287 apples. What do I do with them?

Any favorite apple recipes out there? Much appreciated!


  1. Here is a great one that I have made at Thanksgiving and it makes your house smell INCREDIBLE!!!

    Apple Butter Pumpkin Pie

    Prep Time:8 minInactive Prep Time:--Cook Time:40 min
    6 servings

    1 cup apple butter
    1 cup fresh or canned pumpkin
    1/2 cup packed brown sugar
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
    3 eggs, slightly beaten
    3/4 cup evaporated milk
    1 unbaked 9-inch pie shell
    Sweetened whipped cream, for garnish
    Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

    Combine apple butter, pumpkin, sugar, salt and spices in a bowl. Stir in eggs. Gradually add milk and mix well. Pour into pie shell. Bake for about 40 minutes or until set.

    Cook's Notes:
    -If the crust begins to burn, place tin foil around the crust and lower the temperature of the oven.

    -A tasty topping for this pie is praline pecans.
