Apple lovers get ready: Our favorite fall fruit is now coming into season sooner than expected. From the apple-growing regions of New York, Michigan, and Washington, we can expect to get a jump-start on everything apple, from pick-your-own apple orchards to frosty mugs of apple cider. Though a simple caramel-dipped apple is our favorite, there are plenty of delicious ways to take advantage of autumn’s early bounty.

Here’s a roundup of some of the most tempting apple desserts out there — some of yours, some of ours — that are sure to escort you into the colder months, and will make you forget about your flip flips for another year.
