In a basket are 5 apples, there are also 5 children (of course, not in the basket) Each child wants one apple but the mother wants there to be an apple remaining in the basket.
How can each child have an apple but also have one remaining in the basket?

(This is quite easy so....)

This is another apple one.
There is a pear orchard with one apple tree inside. One day a strong wind blows through the orchard, knocking all the fruits off the trees which holds them. Yet the apples are not found on the tree or in the orchard, so where have these apples gone???

A search for "apples" reveals the first riddle is part of the site:

The second riddle also is, but a pear tree is used:
