10 Dessert Recipes You’ll Fall in Love With
If you thought the name of this dish was a mouthful, you haven’t seen anything yet. We’re starting this list off with a bang.
All of the sweet and caramel goodness of a traditional apple crisp, stuffed and baked inside fresh apples with a crumble topping to die for. Top it off with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce for an incredible fall treat everyone will go crazy for!
“This is what Fall is all about. This is caramel and apples and sugary crumble topping and the smell of wonderful baked goodness all wrapped into the prettiest red and gold package.” Enough said.
Pumpkin, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. What more could you ask for? Beautifully orange in color to complement all of your pumpkin decor. Complete with a gooey, creamy glaze, and the best part? It’s insanely easy to make!
So, muffins aren’t “technically” dessert. They’re really the dessert of breakfast. But these are just the ultimate balance of sweet-and-spicy, and perfect if you’re not fond of all-things pumpkin this season.
“The muffins rely on brown sugar and the natural sweetness of the carrot to bring a warmth to the flavor. Chopped almonds, mixed into the batter and sprinkled over the top, provide a hearty texture. Layered with butter or chocolate hazelnut spread, these muffins can improve any morning, no matter how early or late your morning begins.” Well said.
Described as “pillowy clouds of fried goodness” by the creator, this is the perfect way to indulge this season. If you’re a fan of caramel apples, you’re sure to “fall” in love with these treats – especially the ooey-gooey salted caramel sauce! *mouth-watering*
Imagine waking up on a crisp, fall morning, coffee in hand, and sinking your teeth into this warm, fluffy handful of goodness. Yet another perfect way to start your day with buttery, sweet toffee in every crumbly bite.
“There’s just something so comforting about a beautiful wedge of sweet scone paired with my favorite creamy coffee that makes life worth living, people.” This baker gets it.
No need to stop by the pumpkin farm or bakery this season – now you can make these beauties at home! Irresistible pumpkin mini muffins smothered in cinnamon sugar goodness! Baked, moist, fluffy, and just the right balance of spice and sweetness and not too overpowering on the pumpkin flavor. Just right.
Maple, nutmeg, coffee, oh my. If there were ever a dish that could wrap up all of your favorite fall flavors in one beautiful package, this is it. Apple, pecans, sour cream for moistness, and maple icing…your search is over. This dish takes the cake (no pun intended).
This dish was made to be dunked! Complete with walnuts, chocolate chips, and decadent chai flavor, this crunchy Italian treat is perfect for the mornings or a cozy, chilly night in with a mug of coffee or cocoa.
Scoop up your favorite latte and throw on an infinity scarf, these “little bites of fall” are sure to give you your pumpkin spice fix. Think bite-sized pumpkin pie: filled with pumpkin, graham cracker, and cream cheese. Dip in white, milk, or dark chocolate and be sure to chill. And they’re even better the day after!
This oatmeal raisin cookie recipe was created by the famous Sadelle’s bakery in New York City. Arguably the best oatmeal raisin cookie, the abundance of plump raisins, warm flavor from the cinnamon and super chewy texture puts this new recipe on top! There’s no better time for this classic cookie!
