‘Tis the season of giving, y’all! Giving thanks, giving hugs and gifts, and all the wonderful things that come with the cooler weather and its holidays. So, what better way to ring in fall (and my birthday this weekend) than to share the love a little?

Today I’ve got an incredibly good, fuss-free fall dessert for you that you’re just gonna love. Spiced caramel apples, cloud-like homemade whipped cream, and pillowy soft angel food cake make these jars a mouthwatering sweet for the season. They’re as fun to make as they are to eat, as they are to give as gifts! Triple threat treat, baby.

Topped with a sprinkle of cinnamon and a pinch of silced almonds, these desserts are pretty much heaven in a jar. Like a big scoopful of warm, comforting apple pie! Except, ya know… portioned. So you don’t eat the whole pan.

Guilty.

Thanks to pre-made angel food cakes from Sara Lee Desserts, this is one super easy sweet treat. Just chop up your cake, simmer your apples in cinnamon, sugar and butter until soft, and whip your cream into a frothy-white frenzy! Grab your jars, layer away and garnish for a little extra pizzazz!

To make these pretty, perfectly delicious jars even easier, use canned apple pie filling and store bought whipped cream! I won’t judge.

Just don’t skimp on the angel food. You’ve gotta grab the best, and that means going for Sara Lee! These cakes are fluffy soft perfection in a box. Richly scented with almond and vanilla, each bite melts in your mouth. Irresistible with fruit and whipped cream, I tell ya!

Once they hit store shelves in late fall, grab yourself one and get creative! In the meantime, I’ve got another special treat for you… How about a $50 VISA gift card and some free Sara Lee product coupons?!

Check out the details for entering below… it’s easy!

  187. Oh my gosh! You did a beautiful thing here!

    I recently tried my hand at apple tarts for the first time. I thought I was being clever by cutting up the apples first so they would cook more thoroughly and be mushy and delicious. Yeah, terrible idea when you are trying to stretch a small, thin, piece of dough around sharp corners of a cut up apple, which now takes a lot more space because it’s a mess.

    The flavors, though? Those were perfect!
