As temperatures cool down, it’s about time to turn it on and get back in the kitchen! Even as we mourn the end of grilling, swimming, and long nights this summer, fall can bring just as much excitement with the leaves changing, spices, and super seasonal produce. We’ve got a few dessert ideas that will be the perfect bookend to an evening that starts with our apps!
- Maple Brown Sugar Pecan Cookies
Maple will make the whole house smell like a lovely maple tree forest, bake a platter of these and watch these disappear as an afterschool snack or post dinner delight.
2. Pumpkin Coffee Cake
Yum! Add this to your brunch display next weekend and enjoy the leftovers all week long for a mid day pick me up! The more cinnamon the better!
3. Apple Hand Pies
You already know we love savory pies but these are cutest we could find of the sweet variety! Every guest will get the best piece of the pie with this simple apple dessert, take a shortcut and use store bought pie crust to get this on the table in no time.
4. Pumpkin Cheesecake Balls
What a brilliant little bite! A chic, flavor packed take on a truffle that can be made ahead of time for a small sweet at the end of a lovely fall meal.
5. Apple Cider Cupcakes
Get ready to flex your frosting skills! Use the jug of apple cider you picked up at the apple orchard the weekend before to create moist, spiced cupcakes and top it off with a tangy cream cheese frosting. Cupcakes are always a good call for a crowd!
