Fall's apple abundance is a great blessing to the cook. If you think apples are only meant for galettes and pies, let us introduce you to the idea of savory apple dishes. They're naturally sweet, but when braised or sautéed with brown butter, their flavor grows rich and robust. In these dishes, we match varieties to recipes that highlight their unique character.
Amaretto Apple Streusel Cupcakes
Top tender apple cupcakes with a sweet and crunchy topping of brown sugar and almonds, then drizzle with a powdered sugar glaze. The amaretto adds an even more distinct almond flavor to the cupcakes, but if you don't have it, you can use almond extract instead.
