I’m keeping it simple with a round-up today. The recipe I was originally testing for today was a total bust and therefore a total bummer, because I loved the idea of it! I’ll probably get back to it eventually (hello, pumpkin butter, I want to use you in everything), but in the meantime, let’s talk about 10 awesome ways to use your favorite fall preserves:
Apple butter bars with walnut oat crumble via Mind Over Batter. The walnut and oat crumble takes these bars to a whole other level.
Apple butter BBQ potato salad via Chocolate Moosey. We still get the occasional warm days that call for a cookout at this time of year. This bacon, corn and scallion-packed potato salad sounds like a good side for those fall grilling sessions!
Apple butter snickerdoodles via Crazy for Crust. Pump up the cinnamon flavor in snickerdoodles with a hefty dose of apple butter!
Apple spice granola. Granola infused with all the flavors of fall…what’s not to love?
Chicken apple butter flatbread. Use apple butter in place of pizza sauce for a fall-inspired flatbread.
Fruit butter waffles. Tender and slightly sweet, thanks to the fruit butter in the batter (I like to use apple butter, but peach butter is good too!). Make a batch of these and freeze them for quick weekday breakfasts.
Pear ginger crisp. Super simple and ready to go in just about a half hour. I’m obsessed with this dessert lately!
Pumpkin butter bars via Baked Bree. Who doesn’t enjoy a good pumpkin bar? Nobody, that’s who.
Pumpkin butter thumbprint cookies via The Kitchen Prep. You can’t go wrong with a good thumbprint cookie!
Sweet and spicy chicken thighs via A Southern Fairy Tale. Chipotle peppers bring the spicy, while apple butter brings the sweet.
