When it comes to fall recipes, some people are pumpkin spice people. Lattes, cookies, pies, whatever – everything pumpkin spice, all the time. Then there are the apple people.
I am an apple person.
I like pumpkin spice in the fall, but if I had to choose, I’d pick apples every time. Or salted caramel; I like that too.
But apples are so versatile and delicious and you’ll be seeing A LOT of apple recipes coming up soon, because it’s like that.
I was at Target recently (Oh, Target, how I love thee) and I spotted all the delicious new fall Archer Farms treats and I got a deliciously autumnal idea. What could go better with cinnamon sugar sweet potato chips than a homemade apple-pie dip? Because, chips and dip. Amirite?
Pretty much one of my favorite things to do in the fall is drive up to Julian, California, this tiny little country community about an hour from my house, and go apple picking. I pick a bushel or two and then I have a heyday in the kitchen making pies, dips, cakes and treats.
Basic? Maybe. Awesome? Totally!
I just love this dip, because it’s so easy to make and tastes just like apple pie! You can top vanilla ice cream with it or even use it to make tiny apple-pie bites, but I think I’m going to just dig in with those awesome Archer Farms cinnamon sugar sweet potato chips I grabbed.
- 4 honey crisp apples, peeled, cored and diced
- Juice from ½ a lemon
- ¼ cup Brown Sugar
- Pinch of salt
- 1 tsp corn starch, slurried with water
- Place apples, lemon juice, brown sugar and salt into a heavy saucepan on medium heat.
- Bring to a boil and let the apples release their natural juices. Stir frequently.
- When the apples are softened, add corn starch slurry and mix well.
- Sauce will thicken as it cools.
- Serve with chips.
Then I can wash it down with a homemade iced caramel macchiato, which is so easy to do, let me tell you.
Fill a large tumbler with ice and pour in some cold milk. Add a splash of vanilla flavoring and then use your Keurig to top it with a fresh Archer Farms caramel macchiato coffee pod!
Drizzle with caramel syrup and indulge in fall. How easy is that?
