Photography: Taste Testing from the Apple Tree

It is such a joy to our family, especially our children, that we have an Apple Tree on our property.  This tree is at the back of our property, it’s a dwarf tree, but produces more than enough apples to make a few delicious recipes.  For the past week our kids have wanted to go out and taste test to see if the apples are ready.  Today my son decided they need a few more days to grow a bit bigger.  We are looking for an awesome recipe, any suggestions?  Please comment below of an idea or with a recipe would be even better. Enjoy these few pictures from our taste test.
