Fall dessert recipes are among our favorite elements of the fall season, along with crisp evenings and vibrant foliage. We await autumn morning trips to the farmers’ market and the pounds of pumpkins, fresh pecans, apples, and sweet potatoes we carry home. As the leaves change this fall season, it’s time to cozy up with a soft blanket and enjoy these comforting and popular fall desserts.
Along with seasonal ingredients like spicy cinnamon, rich caramel, and pecans, the fall is one of the best seasons for baking. From gooey morning coffee cakes to holiday-worthy pies, we have pulled together our favorite fall cakes, pies, cookies, puddings, and everything in between to keep your sweet tooth satisfied all season long. Apple Pie, Cinnamon-Apple Cheesecake, Rustic Nut Bars, Pumpkin-Sweet Potato Pie – these popular fall desserts will not disappoint. The autumnal dessert tastes like home.
Classic Apple Pie
A classic apple pie with a delightful double crust will double the fun. The Classic Apple Pie is among the best and a popular autumnal dessert. This pie has a flaky, buttery crust and soft, lightly-spiced apple pie stuffing. Apple pie is a family’s favorite and most wanted holiday pie.
Frosted Pumpkin Cranberry Bars
Along with tangy dried cranberries tucked within and a creamy brownish butter frosting, these slightly spiced pumpkin bars are twice as delightful. Once you taste this dessert, you won’t be able to refrain from returning for more.
This homemade pumpkin pie is very smooth plus velvety with a great mixture of spices. An easy and tasty holiday dessert that will be the start of your Thanksgiving dinner. Can you imagine the holidays without pumpkin cake on your Thanksgiving menu? I think not!
Apple-Cider Doughnut Cake
I’m sure you’ll love this cake if you enjoy the apple-cider donuts often available at farmers’ markets. This Bundt cake is a big, cakey apple-cider doughnut made with olive oil and applesauce, which helps keep it moist and makes it our favorite fall dessert.
Rustic Nut Bars
Cookies are often a favorite snack, and these bars are a perfect treat; you may use any nut products you like. We love the crust found on the base of each bite and the very nutty topping of these chewy, gooey bars. Rustic Nut Bars are a nut lovers’ dream come true. And you can create these this fall.
Pumpkin Torte is a tiered pumpkin cake with whipped cream, caramel, and toffee pieces topping. It is quick and usually turns out so well. The nuts and caramel topping put in the great finishing touch. This incredible treat might substitute all other pumpkin treats in your kitchen!
Air-Fryer Apple Fritters
An air fryer makes these simple apple fritters much healthier than old-fashioned fritters, yet they may still be equally delicious. They’re an easy and quick dessert with a delicious brown butter glaze! You can complete this dessert in under 30 minutes.
Classic Sweet Potato Pie
There’s nothing similar to a freshly baked sweet potato pie to ring in the holiday season. Roasting the sweet potatoes brings a depth of flavor to your Sweet Potato Pie. It is easy and worth the extra step. We love sweet potatoes, which are sweeter than pumpkins. Though the pies are generally done in the same way with eggs, cream/evaporated milk, and pie spices, sweet potato pie is commonly lighter, airier, and sweeter.
Caramel-Pecan Cheesecake Pie
If you love cheesecake and pecan cake, then caramel pecan pie cheesecake pie is the fall dessert for you. Caramel Pecan Pie Cheesecake is the ideal Thanksgiving dessert. All you do is create a typical cheesecake that is topped with nutmeg and cinnamon. Combine them all, bake them, and let them cool. The next thing you do is, top it with pecan halves and cover the whole point with caramel sauce.
Cinnamon Apple Cheesecake
This Cinnamon Apple Cheesecake is one of our favorite creations yet; having a tasty cookie/graham cracker crust, rich and creamy cheesecake base, and apple topping, you can not go wrong. The blend of flavors from the crust to the topping work so well together, and it is such an enjoyable fall dessert or anytime dessert.
