recipe

Best served warm, these fragrant, golden morsels are by turns tender, crisp, and fruity. A simpler (no-yeast) alternative to sufganiyot -- the traditional jam-filled Jewish doughnut served during Hanukkah -- the fritters are studded with diced sweet apples and generously dusted with confectioners' sugar. Be forewarned: They can be addictively delicious.

recipe

For a few brief months in fall, apples are suddenly abundant. Each firm, ripe fruit is full of delicious potential -- destined, perhaps, to be used in a dessert recipe, such as this one for rustic individual tarts.

Rome Beauties are bright red and medium-large, with a tender, slightly sweet flesh. They are a good choice for baking because they hold their shape well. Sweet and crisp Galas have a yellow-orange skin with distinctive red striping and are also good cooked.
