The fragrance of cinnamon and apples throughout the house on a chilly fall day, the tantalizing goodness of Grandma’s apple cookies, a 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’.
