Apple Orchard Fun!

One of the best things about Autumn in Minnesota is picking apples! At quite a few area apple orchards you can enjoy picking apples, hayrides, corn mazes, petting animals and spending time outside in this perfect fall weather. These are some great regional orchards that you are sure to enjoy. For additional information about hours, directions, and weekend events please check their websites or call ahead. Have fun!

Wondering what to do with all of those apples? Here’s a delicious idea!

Snicker caramel apple pie

· 1 pie crust
· 3 green apples diced
· 1/4 cup caramel ice cream topping
· 15-20 mini snickers chopped
· 2 1/2 cup COOL WHIP whipped topping softened
· 1/3 cup can sweetened condensed milk
· 2 ounces cream cheese (softened)

1. Spread snickers on bottom of pie crust. Next layer the apples next. Then drizzle caramel on top.
2. Combine cool whip, cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk together in a small bowl and spread on top. (Side Note: I made this again and mixed the COOL WHIP, condensed milk and cream cheese in a bowl and then added the apples and snickers into that. Then I put it all in the pie crust. I think that way turned out great! )
3. Drizzle with caramel and a few snickers. Place in refrigerator for at least 4 hours. Take out about 5 minutes before serving and top with fresh apple slices. Enjoy!
4. **notes: this pie is best on the first day! If you want to keep the apples from browning, you can put a little lemon juice on them.
