Apple of My Pie: A Field Guide to the Best Apples for Baking, from Pillsbury

Apples Vs Pie
Apple pie is pretty delicious most of the time, no doubt about it. But in the fall, when apples are in season, it gets heightened to a new level of awesome. But which apples are best suited for baking?

Thankfully, the kind people at Pillsbury, who currently have a "Love the Pie" campaign going on to promote making, eating, and sharing pie recipes (love it!) were kind enough to make a field guide detailing which kind of apples are best suited to baking, snacking, freezing, cooking, and so on. It's a keeper!

You can find more pie ideas (including recipes, contests, and general pie deliciousness) at the Pillsbury Pie page.

Leave it to you to full truly useful information from a promotional thingy. This is why you rock. I made an apple crisp the other day and I'm pretty sure there were better apples to use... now I know!

Wow this is extremely helpful. Excellent post...I usually go Granny Smith with everything and this chart tells me why.

Nice chart! Now I know honeycrisp are good for baking and sauce...I know what to do with the big batch of them sitting on my counter.

Really informative post...always wanted to know too. I use Granny Smith for most baking needs; now I see why!
Have no idea what kind of apples were on my trees whenI lived in Michigan but they sure made good applesauce!
