Country Lore: Autumn Recipes

Enjoy the wonderful aromas of autumn by making these recipes at the beginning of fall.

| October/November 2005

Ahhh, autumn! The crunch of crisp leaves underfoot; a sip of spiced cider; the heady aroma of fall leaves burning, pumpkin pies baking, cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg. 

Here are a couple of recipes to bring the scent of autumn into your home: 

Baked Apple Cuplets

¼ cup sugar
½ teaspoon cinnamon
6 apples
2/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup flour
¼ teaspoon baking powder
Pinch of salt
1 egg
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla 

Combine the one-quarter cup sugar with the one-half teaspoon cinnamon. Peel and core the apples, and then roll in the mixture. Place in custard cups coated with nonstick spray. Fill the apple cavities with any remaining sugar/cinnamon mixture and set aside.

To make the batter, stir together the sugar, flour, baking powder and salt. Lightly beat the egg, mix with the melted butter and vanilla, and then add to the dry ingredients. Stir well. The batter will be thick. Put 2 tablespoons of the batter over each apple. Set the custard cups in a baking dish and bake in a 375-degree oven for 40 to 45 minutes, until the apples are tender. Serves 6. 

Cider Mulls

You can use these cider mulls for a festive and aromatic drink. When packaged in a pretty bag, they make a delightful gift.
