30 Apple Cider Recipes for Fall

30 Apple Cider Recipes for FallApple cider desserts are one of my favorite fall things to make. I am fortunate enough to have an apple orchard less than two miles from my home. There you can watch them process the apples into cider right in their cider barn. This year, however, they ran out of apple cider early due to the weather this season. So this year I’ll have to settle for grocery store cider instead of the fresh cider I usually buy from the orchard.

I’ve made several apple cider recipes myself (mine are scattered in with the others below), but there are tons more out there to enjoy! So if you’re looking for some delicious apple cider recipe ideas, here are 30 for you to peruse, pin, and bookmark. Enjoy!

Apple Cider Breakfast Recipes

The doughnuts below are amazing. The orchard I spoke of above sells warm cinnamon sugar covered doughnuts that are to die for. These were as close as I could get! There are several breakfast options here.
