The chillier weather always has us eager to bake and spend extra time in the kitchen whipping up some tasty fall treats with the kids. These yummy recipes feature our favorite flavors of the season: from freshly picked apples to pumpkin to cinnamon, these recipes are sure to put you in the fall mood.
Caramel Apple Rolls
Head to your local orchard and pick some apples to celebrate the loveliest season of all – and then bake these tasty caramel apple rolls! This recipe features a sweet brioche dough topped with shreded apples, caramel, and pecans.
Apple Pear Pie Bars
Regular old apple pies are great, but if you especially love pie crust, this is the pie for you! Baking pies in a rectangle shape and cutting them into small squares creates the perfect fruit to crust ratio.
Pumpkin Bread with Cream Cheese Frosting
Pumpkin bread is a classic recipe for the autumn months. The smell of pumpkin, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg filling the air can’t be beat. And while pumpkin bread is good, pumpkin bread with cream cheese frosting is downright delicious.
Simply Scrumptious Cinnamon Swirl Muffins
These delicious muffins are swirled with cinnamon and brown sugar with a hint of tang. It is made with yogurt and butter so the dough will be a bit sticky – work fast as you carefully spoon in the layers and have clean spoons on hand in case the ones you’re using get a bit sticky!
Brownies with Pumpkin Frosting
If like us, you love the pairing of chocolate and pumpkin together, you’ll fall head over heels for these brownies covered in pumpkin frosting. They are decadent, rich, and the absolute perfect way to celebrate fall.
Tiny Cinnamon Rolls
Have you ever seen anything cuter? These tiny cinnamon rolls are delicious and the perfect bite-sized treat for any occasion/
Ginger snaps are one of our all-time favorite cookies! They are so tasty dipped in a glass of milk or into a mug of hot tea on a chilly day.
Spiced Butternut Squash Bundt Cake
This butternut bundt cake is generously spiced with the flavors of the fall season. For the best flavor, skip the can and make your own butternut squash puree instead. And best of all, it comes together simply and just needs a dusting of powdered sugar to be centerpiece-ready!
Baked Pumpkin Donuts
Baked donuts are way easier to make than regular ones! This recipe is technically for donut-tasting muffins, but they taste so much better when baked in a donut pan – incredibly moist and delicious!
Pumpkin Swirl Buns
These swirl buns make the perfect breakfast, brunch, dessert, or snack for anytime of day. The pumpkin filling is sweet and full of holiday spice, then buns are tender and topped with tangy icing – a perfect bite.
