I associate two words with apple desserts—warm and cozy. Apples announce the change of season, fall foliage, and a reason to visit an orchard. After an active summer, it’s time to slow down and enjoy a slower pace.
The first couple of weeks in November may appear calm. With Halloween just behind us, we are heading toward the starting line of the holiday madness. Never mind Thanksgiving, I’ve already seen Christmas decor in store windows. The retailers are quick to remind you to get a head start—even if you haven’t yet put away your summer clothes.
