Apple Hand Pies are a darling version of mini apple pies. Fork-tender local apples share the spotlight with cinnamon for this favorite fall recipe. The apples in these photos came from The Folk Collaborative, an apple orchard, bakery and apothecary outside of McCaysville, Georgia.

Prosciutto, an Italian word for "ham", marries beautifully with fresh Anjou pear, Gorgonzola cheese and peppery arugula. Top with balsamic glaze for rich flavor that comes together quickly.

Maple Old Fashioned on table

The classic Old Fashioned bourbon cocktail gets an autumn-inspired upgrade with maple syrup and fresh squeezed orange juice. Sweet but not overpowering, the Maple Old Fashioned is our newest fall favorite.

This Southern Succotash Stew brings all the flavors of a traditional summertime succotash. Smoked sausage, corn and lima beans are the stars of this stew that we like to think of as a great big bowl of comfort.

This Sweet Potato Breakfast Hash with Sausage and Eggs calls for coconut oil, which adds a rich and totally cravable contrast to the spicy breakfast sausage and differentiates this recipe. It’s a subtle, not overpowering, coconut flavor – but noticeable enough to take this hash to the next level.
