4. Sweet Corn Spoonbread
Serve this sweet corn spoonbread at your next Thanksgiving meal and you’re sure to become the host of the year.

If you’re looking for a mouthful of fall flavor, this apple pie salsa and cinnamon sugar chips recipe is guaranteed to satisfy your cravings. The recipe takes a creative spin on the popular Thanksgiving dessert apple pie, making it more fun to eat than ever before.

Then, create your cinnamon sugar chips by spreading an easy-to-make cinnamon sugar and melted butter mixture onto a few flour tortillas and baking for 15 minutes. You will have created a gooey apple pie salsa in no time and introduce your guests to a fun dessert, while still giving them the traditional taste of warm apple pie.  

For a special touch, add a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of your favorite vanilla ice cream to create the ultimate fall dessert.
