Here are some apple recipes fun for the whole family, just in time for first day of fall 2022!

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Fall means apple season is back!

Not only can you enjoy apple picking in areas near Chicago, but nutritionist and celebrity health coach Karina Heinrich shared recipes you can make in the kitchen.

After school apple rings

You'll need three large apples, toppings of your choice, a knife and small bowls.

Core and slice apples the widthwise to make rings.

Add the toppings to small bowls, and let your kids decorate them to their liking

Cinnamon Apple Chips

Bake apple slices topped with a little honey and cinnamon at a very low temperature for a few hours to dehydrate the apples.

Let them cool, and serve to enjoy.

Peanut Butter Apple Sandwiches

Mix peanut butter and ricotta cheese together in a bowl until smooth. Add in vanilla extract, cinnamon and honey. Spread it on whole wheat bread and add thinly-sliced apples for crunch.

Henrich also said you can enjoy all of the fall's harvest by making a roasted pumpkin apple and carrot soup. And of course, enjoy a chilly fall night with spiced apple cranberry cider by combining apple cider, cranberry juice, honey, whole cloves, all spice and fresh cinnamon (sticks broken) in a pot and warming it all up on your stove or crockpot.
