National Dessert Day | Cinnamon Dolce Apples – The Foodie Patootie

National Dessert Day | Cinnamon Dolce Apples

You know those times when your recipe just WORKS? When you don’t have to tweak it, or you aren’t looking for ways to improve it? That’s this recipe, courtesy of my husband. He’s taken on a big role in our house when it comes to conceptualizing dishes, making them, sometimes styling the photo. A huge help, he makes my food holiday life a little (a lot) easier. This recipe is one of his creations.

National Dessert Day | Cinnamon Dolce Apples

He used the cinnamon dolce syrup that he created for National Frappe Day, but then cooked green apples in the sauce. We also use these apples for stuffed french toast and other treats. It’s perfect because it’s the time of the year for apples, cinnamon, caramel, all those fall flavors. It’s you’re anything like Mike, you’ll impress your mother-in-law with this dessert too. 😉

Happy National Dessert Day!

  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
