You guys know I LOVE me some apple butter. In fact, I have been working with Musselman’s apple butter since 2014 and love all the opportunities to make delicious recipes with their products. Growing up I used to slather apple butter over my toast but nowadays I tend to make delicious sweet and savory dishes with it. Seriously, it adds such a great flavor to dishes and I’m always surprised at the recipes you can throw a little apple butter into.

Luckily for you, I’m not going to just say it’s great for recipes and leave you hanging. NOPE! Below I’m giving you my best 11 apple butter involved recipes. I have everything from ice cream to pizza to burgers to donuts. HECK. YES!
