Georgia Apple Festival

We hope you truly embrace, bake, and enjoy these timeless apple recipes in celebration of the 46th Georgia Apple Festival.

In the wake of Tropical Storm Irma- Lions Club members persevered through power outages to bake these wonderful desserts. Can you imagine baking by oil lamp light and pulling these beauties out of the oven? Our mountain culture is strong and these Lions Club women prove that their heart is truly in the work of supporting local, national and international charities– not only for the Apple Festival– but by donating their time and effort year-round. Oh Ladies,You Have My Heart!
