We take the kids apple picking every year, and they always love grabbing their buckets, picking apples, and learning all about different apple varieties. These 6 kid-friendly dessert recipes are great both for using those apples and for ringing in the fall. From healthier baked apples to mini pies and handheld pop tarts, there’s a yummy apple treat here for everyone.
Apple Pop Tarts (via Raspberri Cupcakes) These handheld pies are shaped like classic Pop Tarts with a cinnamon glaze on top. If you want a simpler version, I’ve used pre-rolled refrigerated pie crust before as a substitute.
Apple Harvest Squares (via A Family Feast) A buttery crust topped with apples, coconut, and walnuts.
Salted Caramel Mini Bundt Cakes (via Hungry Couple) These moist little cakes are drizzled with caramel sauce, but I bet would taste just as good without – especially if you want to serve something less sweet to your kids.
Mini Dutch Apple Pies (via Some The Wiser) These tiny apple treats are the perfect mini muffin size for a special function or party for kids.
Baked Maple Pecan Apples (via Simple Bites) This is a great way to get kids involved in making their own apple dessert – they can easily fill apples with dried fruit, nuts, and a couple other ingredients.
Apple Oatmeal Cookies (via Tikkido) A breakfast-inspired cookie made with cinnamon, oats, and dried apples.
