Ron Ben-Israel's Baked Apples

"When I was young I didn't like raw apples, so I made baked apples: I removed the core and filled the gap with nuts and raisins, drizzled it with honey, sprinkled on some cinnamon and baked it in a pan filled with 1/2 inch of water at 350 degrees F for 30 to 40 minutes."

Alex Guarnaschelli's Apple Cider

"My daughter loves warm apple cider with cubed apples and cinnamon in it."

Ree Drummond's Apple Grilled Cheese

"My favorite apple snack as a kid was applesauce because I was a big Brady Bunch fan and loved the way Peter Brady said 'appleshaush.' Now I like adding apple slices to a grilled cheese sandwich for a tiny bit of crunch and sweetness."

Geoffrey Zakarian's Apple Yogurt

"My kids love all the different apples at the farmers' market. One of our favorite recipes: Peel and quarter 4 Gala and 4 Golden Delicious apples, simmer in a covered pot with 2 tablespoons agave syrup and 1/2 cup water until soft, about 20 minutes, then puree. They love to mix it into their yogurt."

Melissa d'Arabian's Apple With Speculoos

"When I was growing up, I had a skating accident that knocked out my front tooth, so I could only eat apples cut up. These days I still cut them into wedges and I dip them in Biscoff Spread (speculoos, or Belgian cookie spread) — because it's the new Nutella, just like Nutella was the new peanut butter!"
