Fall dessert recipes to try

The leaves are changing, the air is getting cooler, and I’m ready to bake. A lot of people think they have to wait until Thanksgiving to start making fall desserts, but I say that’s nonsense. The cool weather makes me want pumpkin pie, apple crisp and caramel apple mug cake all year long. If you’re like me and can’t resist the temptation of fresh apples, pumpkins or pecans just because it’s not October yet—never mind! Here are five easy-to-make dishes from around the web that will get you in the mood for fall no matter what time of year it is. Here’s Fall dessert recipes to try.

Apple Pie

The apple pie recipe is simple, and can be made with store-bought crust or fresh apples. It’s also a great way to use frozen apple slices if you’re feeling lazy, or even dried ones if you’re really pressed for time and energy. This recipe is a good one for beginners because it requires few ingredients and tools, but will still impress anyone who gets their hands on it!

Apple Crisp

Apple Crisp

This recipe is a classic, but it’s still worth making in the fall because apples are so delicious. The crisp topping is a mix of oats, brown sugar and butter that gets baked until golden brown. If you want to change it up a bit (or if you’re just not feeling like peeling all those apples), try using store-bought pie crust instead!

To make this dessert:

  • Peel and core 6 small baking apples (about 2 pounds). Cut into ½-inch pieces; set aside. In large bowl combine 1 cup quick oats; 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar; 3 tablespoons melted butter; 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon; pinch salt if desired.* Pour mixture into 8x8x2-inch glass baking dish sprayed with nonstick spray coating on bottom only.* Top evenly with apple mixture then sprinkle with additional cinnamon if desired.* Bake at 350°F for 20 minutes or until golden brown on top and bubbling around edges.* Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream

Pumpkin Cake

This dessert is perfect for parties and potlucks because it can be made in a 9×13 pan. You can use canned pumpkin or fresh pumpkin, but if you’re using the latter, make sure to cook it first! The cake mix can be any flavor you like–it doesn’t have to be yellow cake; chocolate would also work well here.

Pumpkin Cake:

1 box yellow (or chocolate) cake mix

1 cup vegetable oil/melted butter/coconut oil

4 eggs

Pecan Pie

Pecans are the best choice for this recipe. If you’re wondering why, it’s because they have a higher fat content than walnuts and therefore a more buttery taste. They also have a slightly sweeter flavor that pairs well with the pumpkin pie filling.

Pecans are also great for this particular dessert because they can be used whole or chopped into pieces–either way works! The only thing to keep in mind is that when using whole pecans in pies (or other baked goods), be sure that they’re fully cooked before serving them hot out of the oven so as not to burn yourself while eating them or risk having someone else get burned by accidentally eating one whole piece at once without realizing it was still hot enough from baking/cooking time that there was still some residual heat left over inside those nuts’ shells

even though most people wouldn’t think twice about eating something like an apple where it might still be warm after being cut open but would definitely notice if something else were too warm due its nature as being very different from what most people would expect when thinking about food items such as apples being cold rather than hot like cookies which tend not only look similar physically speaking but also taste similar too

Caramel Apple Mug Cake

  • In a large mug, combine the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Whisk until well combined.
  • Add the egg, vegetable oil, milk and vanilla extract to the dry ingredients and mix until smooth (you may need to use a fork for this step).
  • Microwave for 1 1/2 minutes on high power or until top is golden brown in color (I microwaved mine for 2 minutes because I like my cake extra moist).

Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Glaze Recipe

Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Glaze Recipe


  • 1/2 cup sugar (you can also use brown sugar, if you prefer)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 packages yeast (about 4 1/4 teaspoons)
  • 1 1/4 cups warm water (105 to 115 degrees F) *If you don’t have a thermometer, just pour some of the water into your hand and hold it there for about 10 seconds; if it feels very warm but not hot enough to burn your skin or make it tingle, then it’s good to go!*
