Apple Bake Contest

Freshly baked warm apple pie.

The fragrance of cinnamon and apples throughout the house on a chilly fall day, the tantalizing goodness of Grandma’s apple cookies, an mid-morning snack of hot tea and nutty apple bread, apple dumplings  with gooey cinnamon syrup and a scoop of ice cream.

Everybody has their favorite memories of their yummy fall favorites, and when the leaves start turning, it’s time to “get makin” and bakin’.

Here is your chance to show off your baking skills, share a favorite recipe (yours or Grandma’s), and see if you have what it takes to become our next Apple Bake Contest champion!
