With the mid-day temperatures reaching into the 90s, its hard to think all things Fall right now. In a few weeks we will all be hanging our Fall wreathes on the door. Recently Ive been noticing really pretty apples in the grocery stores. I love apple season, really fresh apples are hard to beat this time of year. I checked with the good folks at Merciers Orchard in Blue Ridge, Georgia and they are picking Honey Crisp, Golden Supreme, September Wonder, and Gala currently. So with fresh apples in mind I tested the following apple dip recipe for you Its hard to miss when a recipe calls for homemade caramel sauce and cream cheese. This recipe caught my eye because the dip is divided into six 4-ounce Ball jars for serving. Caramel Cream Cheese Apple Dip Cream Cheese Layer (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup caramel sauce 1 tablespoon brown sugar 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon Caramel Sauce 4 tablespoons butter 1 cup brown sugar, packed 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream Pinch of salt 1 teaspoon vanilla Topping 6 tablespoons chopped pecans To make caramel sauce combine butter, brown sugar, salt and cream in a heavy bottom sauce pan. Bring to a boil and cook for 5-7 minutes or until slightly thickened. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Set aside to cool slightly, about 5 minutes. Make the cream cheese mixture by combining all ingredients in a mixing bowl and beat until smooth. To assemble divide the cream cheese mixture between the six jars sauce. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of chopped nuts over the caramel sauce. Seal each jar with lid and serve with a bowl of fresh apple slices.
