Great, Tessa! We alternate our Sunday breakfasts between the Dutch Baby (and we alternate using blueberries and apples), and Pumpkin or Sweet Potato Pancakes (recipe was posted in the Pumpkin/Squash recipe area). Yum!

Default Tree Fruit - Apples, Stone Fruits

Cranberry Apple Crisp

I left the fibrous, vitamin-rich apple peels on and replaced most of the butter with canola oil. I’m so pleased with the results. Carolyn DiPasquale - Middletown, RI

8 Servings
Prep: 15 min.
Bake: 40 min.

Ingredients
5 medium tart apples, sliced
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 can (14 ounces) whole-berry cranberry sauce
TOPPING:
3/4 cup quick-cooking oats
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons wheat bran
2 tablespoons canola oil
2 tablespoons butter, melted
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Fat-free vanilla frozen yogurt, optional
Directions
• In a large bowl, combine apples and flour; toss to coat.
• Stir in cranberry sauce.
• Transfer to a 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray.
• In a small bowl, combine topping ingredients; sprinkle over apple mixture. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until topping is golden brown and fruit is tender.
• Serve with frozen yogurt if desired.

Yield: 8 servings.

Notes from original poster:
Oh my gosh! Here is another great dessert for the fall season! The cranberries and apples make such a wonderful combination! It is best served warm, so put it in the oven to cook as you are about to sit down to dinner!
Enjoy!

Apple Dumplings

In Pennsylvania Dutch country, Apple Dumplings are served warm, in a bowl of milk. My first choice of apples for apple dumplings is Stayman Winesap. They hold their shape well and have just the right combination of tartness and sweetness. Since Winesap apples are available for only a short time and even then they're hard to find, I also use Golden Delicious, Jonathan or Granny Smith apples instead.

Ingredients
pie dough - About the same amount as you would use for 2 - 9" pie shells
6 large apples
1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed.
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 T. flour
1 slightly beaten egg white

Preparation -
• Prepare the pie crust and refrigerate for about one hour before rolling. Meanwhile, peel and core the apples.
• Mix the brown sugar, cinnamon, & flour together and set aside.
• Divide the dough in half.
• Roll each half to about 1/8" thick.
• Cut each piece of rolled out dough into 3 pieces.
• Place 1 apple in the center of each piece.
• Fill the empty core space with the brown sugar, cinnamon and flour mixture.
• Bring up edges of the dough and overlap at the top to completely cover the apple.
• Press the edges together to seal.
• Cut a slit through the layers of dough at the top of the apple top to allow steam to eacape while baking.
• Arrange the apple dumplings in a shallow baking dish.
• Brush the tops with 1 slightly beaten egg white and sprinkle with sugar, if desired.
• Bake in a preheated oven at 400º for 20 minutes.
• Lower heat to 350º and bake for an additional 15 to 20 minutes or until the crust is a light golden brown color.

Shrimp On The Barbie

12 Giant Prawns, shelled and heads and tails intact
1/4 cup Butter
1 cup Orange juice (freshly, squeezed)
2 tablespoons Sherry
1 teaspoon Orange Zest (grated)
2 each Green onions, tops and white
1 teaspoon Ginger root, (freshly grated)

• Soak a dozen long wooden skewers in water for 30 minutes.
• Then push skewers through prawns, lengthwise, from head to tail with only 1 to a skewer.
• Combine all ingredients in saucepan and cook over medium to low heat, stirring, until butter is completely melted.
• Dip skewered prawns in the orange sauce and position on oiled grill rack about 4 inches above the coals.
• Baste liberally with sauce and grill for 2 minutes.
• Turn the prawn over and baste again, cooking for another 2 minutes.
• Smaller prawn will be done at this point, but continue basting and turning larger prawn until they are pink and cooked through.
• Remove from heat immediately when done, as they will get tough if overcooked.
• Use any remaining sauce for a dip for the prawns.

Avocado and Sun-Dried Tomato Spring Rolls

1 quart oil for frying
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/3 cup shredded cabbage
1/4 cup shredded carrots
1/4 cup shredded cucumber
2 tablespoons diced onion
1/4 cup diced green onion
2 tablespoons finely chopped shiitake mushrooms
1/3 cup sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
2 ounces boneless chicken breast halves, cooked and diced
1 ounce cooked crabmeat, diced
1 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder
1 avocado - peeled, pitted and diced
1 teaspoon lemon juice
8 spring roll wrappers

Heat 1 quart oil in a wok over medium high heat.
Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in cabbage, carrots, cucumber, onion, green onion, shiitake mushrooms, sun-dried tomatoes, salt and pepper. Slowly cook and stir until all vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes.
Stir chicken, crabmeat and Chinese five-spice powder into the cabbage mixture. Sprinkle avocado with lemon juice, then stir it into the mixture. Remove from heat.
Place approximately 1 teaspoon of the cabbage and chicken mixture in the center of spring roll wrappers. Fold wrappers, and seal the edges with moistened fingers.
Carefully lower spring rolls into the heated quart of oil. Deep fry approximately 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Cut in half to serve.

Zana's Note:

I've done this using rice wrappers for a gluten free version. It also ends up being lighter in fat, since you don't have to fry it.
