We love these adorable Apple Hand Pies, so much so that it inspired a round up of our favorite apple-centric dessert recipes.

Need a coffee break from all the caroling, cooking, and gift exchanging? This Whole-Grain Apple Cake with Yogurt Cream is the kind of substantial, buttery-crisp treat that’s worth halting your busy holiday schedule for. It’s delicious warm or at room temperature, a perfect on-the-go snack for traveling relatives.

Is it possible for an apple recipe to go viral? These Hasselback Apples may not have broken the Internet, but they remain a hands-down favorite for the ultimate fall/winter dessert. Partially sliced apple halves, painted with cinnamon-brown sugar butter, baked until tender and are topped off with a crispy oat streusel and (what else?) a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

These little Spiced Apple Two-Bite Tarts might almost fall into the category of too cute too eat. Finely chopped toasted pecans make the dough a sturdy base for the apple filling, which cooks separately on the stove while the tart shells bake. A little dollop of tangy crème fraiche crowns each bite.

This fancypants seeming French Apple Tart couldn’t be easier. It’s the ingredients—fresh vanilla bean, nutmeg, an apple jelly glaze for extra gloss—that makes it look and feel so special. And fanning out those thin apple slices is so much fun.

Who says candied apples are just for Halloween? Pistachio-Orange Caramel Apples give this treat an adult spin. Mix up the toppings for a festive look, such as green pistachios with red dried cranberries, white chocolate with flaked sweetened coconut “snow,” or dark chocolate and crushed peppermint candy.
