There are a lot of ways to use apple cider, but let’s start with the classic drink. This apple cider is made in a slow cooker using fresh apples and a variety of other fruits along with mulling spices. It might take some time, but it’s well worth the wait.

Apple cider is delicious on its own, but why not make it a little more fun and add some booze? A Moscow mule is one of our favorite cocktails, but it becomes extra special when it’s made with apple cider, too.

Caramel Apple Cider Cookies
Baking cookies is always a comforting activity, so turn up the oven on a cool fall day and prepare these sugar cookies that are stuffed with a caramel apple-cider filling. These are the type of dessert you’ll want to enjoy fresh out of the oven.

Baked Apple Cider Donuts
For many, apple cider donuts are part of a fall tradition, and these donuts are baked, not fried, making them a healthier option. Spiked with apple cider and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar, these donuts are perfectly fluffy and easy to make.
