Kristen Miglore’s Genius Desserts has stirred the  baking spirit within! As I type, I have Geri’s Applesauce-Yogurt Cake, a favorite of my children, baking away, a log of Dorie’s World Peace Cookies chilling in the fridge, and a batch of homemade ricotta draining in a cheesecloth-lined sieve in preparation for, well, toast.

In the meantime, here are nine favorite apple recipes to bake right now. Images link to recipes. Happy baking!
