So what makes these Fuji apple recipes different from other recipes that use apples?
First of all, Fuji apples have a high sugar content. That, of course, makes them very sweet.
For that reason, they’re a fantastic option to use in desserts and sweet breakfast dishes.
They also have a gorgeous red color. That makes them a good option if you’re making something where presentation is a factor. Plus, they’re really juicy.
Finally, their texture is fantastic, and they have crisp skins. They hold up well in heat and throughout the cooking process.
They won’t get as soft and mushy as lots of other apples.
Now, check out these 17 Fuji apple recipes and see which ones you like best.
1. Apple Crisp
Apple crisp is a cinnamon-spiced fall favorite. It tastes and smells amazing and is as comforting as it is delicious. The contrast in textures is also outstanding.
The center of the crisp is warm and gooey. The top, though, is crispy and crunchy. Together, they make the perfect pair.
Best of all, you can whip it up in a single pan. That saves you a lot of time on dishes later. (And who doesn’t want to save time on dishes?!)
2. Apple Pie
This pie’s flaky, buttery crust is why it’s one of my favorite apple pie recipes. The filling of tender, sweetly tart apples and warm spices isn’t bad, either.
This apple pie is as indulgent and as American as it gets. Top it with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream, and you’re all set.
It’s the perfect dessert option, especially for the summer holidays.
3. Air Fryer Apple Chips
These three-ingredient apple chips are sweet, crunchy, and only take 20 minutes to whip up.
You’ll make them with apples, salt, cinnamon, and your air fryer.
Luckily, the process couldn’t be more straightforward. Plus, at less than 100 calories for two servings, these are the ideal snack.
You can “indulge” without having to feel any guilt whatsoever.
4. Apple Pie Taquitos
These taquitos give you the same phenomenal apple pie taste. However, they come in an exciting, unusual package.
The cinnamon- and sugar-wrapped taquitos look lovely. They’re also “something different.” But they still give you that heartwarming apple pie vibe.
Also, they smell so good, they’ll make your mouth water.
5. Microwave Baked Apples
Picture this: It’s a fall evening, just before dark.
You’re lounging around in your pajama bottoms and an oversized sweatshirt. It’s cool outside, but warm and cozy in the house.
Your candle is burning, and you’re curled up on the couch with a good book. Then, you get a craving for something sweet.
Microwave-baked apples are a delicious treat that take only 3 minutes to prepare.
They’re sized for a single person and the perfect choice for this scenario.
They’re juicy, sweetly tart, and full of buttery cinnamon goodness. Enjoy!
6. Cracker Barrel Fried Apples
Of course, if you have a bit more time and want to make a larger batch, you can. Use this copycat Cracker Barrel recipe instead.
These apples are the juiciest, tenderest apples you can make.
The recipe calls for Golden Delicious, but Fuji apples taste just as good. They’re sweeter and retain a firmer texture.
7. Fuji Apple Salad
Let’s change gears for a second and look at something a bit more savory.
This Panera-inspired salad starts with a crisp green salad mix and grilled chicken. Then, you’ll add apples, veggies, gorgonzola, and more.
It’s a perfectly balanced sweet and savory salad option. It makes a nice, quick lunch and is surprisingly filling without being weighty.
(You can always adjust the veggies and dressing if you want.)
8. Fuji Apple Chicken Salad
Here’s the same yummy salad with some slight tweaks to the recipe. If you prefer your salads zestier and savorier, use the recipe above.
If you want a more robust sweet flavor, use this one instead. Both are delicious and nutritious. Each one just caters to a slightly different taste profile.
9. Baked Apple Slices (No Added Sugar)
I know I’ve already had a few buttery, cinnamon apple recipes on this list. But can you really ever have too many?
After all, baked apples are one of those foods that can transport you back to your childhood.
These are baked and contain no added sugar. All in all, they’re a relatively healthy snack.
And of course, they’re delicious and take just 30 minutes to make. That makes them even better.
10. Apple Fritters
Choosing between donuts and apple pie is practically impossible. So don’t even try.
Just make apple fritters instead. You’ll get the best of both worlds with them.
Like donuts, they’re crunchy and covered in glaze. However, they have a delightful apple pie flavor that’ll have you ready for fall.
Serve them for dessert or as a decadent breakfast treat. Either way, they taste phenomenal with coffee.
11. Instant Pot Applesauce
Store-bought applesauce is good, but it has nothing on Instant Pot applesauce. You’ll make it with three different types of apples.
That allows you to balance the sweet and tart flavors just right. Then, you’ll add the spices (cinnamon, cardamom, and vanilla extract).
The whole process takes less than 30 minutes, and the applesauce turns out great. It has a fantastic taste and an even better texture.
12. Korean Potato Salad (Gamja Salad)
Korean potato salad is bright and zesty. It has plenty of crunch from the apples, cucumbers, and carrots. Additionally, it’s hearty and refreshing.
It’s such a fresh, scrumptious side dish. If you want something a bit different with your barbecue this summer, give this recipe a try.
13. Jewish Apple Cake
This apple-infused cake features a dense, moist crumb and a spectacularly sweet taste. The cake itself is light and somewhat citrus-flavored.
It’s almost like a pound cake, only much moister. There’s also a bit of crispiness around the edges, making it even tastier.
14. Apple Cobbler
Apple cobbler is the ultimate comfort food. It features a buttery, biscuit-like top and saucy, cinnamon-coated apples underneath.
It’s a standard fall treat, but apples are a year-round commodity in the stores. That means you don’t have to wait until fall to whip this up.
Make it whenever you like!
Top it with whipped cream or homemade ice cream for extra sweetness.
15. Slow Cooker Apple Butter
If you’ve never tried the sheer buttery ecstasy that is apple butter, you’re missing out. This stuff might take 11 hours to cook, but it’s worth every hour.
Spread it on a warm biscuit, muffin, or piece of toast. The result is pure heavenly bliss. It’s a simple, five-ingredient recipe.
However, there’s nothing simple about the flavor. It’s so rich, complex, and overwhelmingly delectable.
16. Apple Cranberry Sauce
Try this thick, tart, and tangy sauce once, and you’ll never want regular cranberry sauce again.
You won’t believe how much better it tastes with apples in the mix.
The apples lighten and sweeten the overall flavor. However, you won’t lose the traditional cranberry sauce kick.
It’s unbelievably vibrant, both in color and flavor. You’ll be super mad at yourself for not discovering it sooner.
17. Apple Cinnamon Bacon Bites
I’ve said this before, but it’s still true today, so I’ll repeat it. Everything tastes better with bacon! And that’s a fact.
It’s even true when the “everything” is a sweetly spiced cinnamon apple bite.
You’re taking the robust flavors of cinnamon and apples and adding salty, juicy bacon.
My mouth is watering just thinking about these bite-sized morsels.
These make a wonderful appetizer. Just be sure you make plenty because they go fast.
Once someone tries the first one, the rest will just fly off the table.
