Hot Mulled Cider
1/2 gal. Apple Cider
3" cinnamon stick
3-4 whole cloves

Add spices to cider, either loose, in cheese cloth, or in a container for holding spices. Heat until hot but not boiling for about 1 hour. Remove spices and serve.

Baked Apples
In a pan on the stove, heat the following until they have thickened but do not boil:
1 Tbsp. sugar
1 Tbsp. flour
1 cup water
1/4 tsp. cinnamon

Pour over 4-6 whole, cored apples. Bake at 350° for about 45 minutes (time will depend on which variety of apple you use). While baking, occasionally pour sauce over apples again.

Apple & Squash Bake
2 lbs. Butternut Squash
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup melted margarine
2-3 tart baking apples
1 Tbsp. flour
1/2 tsp. mace or cinnamon

Cut and peel both squash and apples in 1/2 slices. Arrange squash in a 9" x 9" ungreased baking dish. Place apple slices over squash slices. Mix remaining ingredients over the top of squash and apples. Cover with foil. Bake at 350° for 50-60 minutes or until it is done. The squash and apples will remain in slices.

Apple Cheesecake
Crust: mix together the following with a pasty blender:
1/2 cup margarine
1/3 cup white sugar
1/4 tsp. vanilla
1 cup flour
Pat crust in the bottom of a 9" pan.

Filling: cream together:
8 oz. softened cream cheese
1/4 cup sugar
Then add:
1 egg
1/2 tsp. vanilla.
Spoon over crust and spread evenly.

Topping: combine:
1/3 cup white sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
4 cups sliced and peeled baking apples
Arrange apple slices in a decorative arrangement, placing them one at a time over the filling. There will be more than one layer.

Bake: 10 minutes at 425°, then reduce to 375° and bake for another 25 minutes. (You may want to place a cookie sheet under the pie since it may run over.) Cool, then refrigerate.

Apple Crisp
4 cups peeled and sliced baking apples
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1/2 cup water
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
3/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/3 cup butter

Place apples in a greased 9" x 9" baking dish. Sprinkle apples with lemon juice and water. In separate bowl, mix brown sugar, flour, oats, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Cut in butter with a pastry blender until it looks crumbly. Spread the mixture over the apples. Bake at 350° for 30-40 minutes or until it’s bubbly and apples are tender.

Apple Cake
With a mixer, combine together the following:
1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
2 eggs
2 cups white sugar
2 tsp. vanilla

In separate bowl, sift together the following:
3 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. baking soda

Then combine this with the first mixture using a mixer. With a wooden spoon add 3 cups peeled and finely chopped apples and 1/2 cup chopped nuts—either walnuts or pecans. This will make a very stiff batter. Place mixture in 9" x 13" pan. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes. Frost with cream cheese or vanilla frosting. (If you prefer, you may make cupcakes instead. The batter will make approximately 30 cupcakes, and it will only need 25 minutes of baking.)
