A kitchen in the fall conjures up memories of apples and warm spices, pumpkin and squashes. Many folks make their own apple butter at home, but there are actually great store-bought varieties available in most supermarkets around the country.

So we thought instead of focusing on how to make apple butter today, we’d think about ways to use it in the kitchen. Sure, there’s nothing better than slathering a dollop of apple butter onto warm toast or biscuits in the morning, but it can actually be an integral ingredient in fall cooking and baking. Here are a few recipes we’re excited to try:

Apple Butter Pumpkin Pie – Food Network
Apple Butter Spice Cake – Eating Well
Apple Butter Ice Cream with Ginger Chocolate Ganache – Food and Wine
Apple Butter Bars – Sidehill Farms
Apple-Butter-Filled Gingerbread Cookies – Los Angeles Times
