One of our favorite parts about the cool chill of autumn is heating up the oven and getting our bake on! The falling temperature is a perfect excuse to bake some warm spice cakes and cookies, or just to whip up your favorite comfort foods. We’ve comprised a list of our favorite, simple fall desserts that you can make on the go. Dig in!
Pumpkin Cheesecake Dip
Fall without pumpkin isn’t really fall in our eyes, which is why we’ve included this tasty pumpkin cheesecake dip recipe from Oh Sweet Basil. This finger licking dip is way easier than making a cheesecake from scratch, and will still satisfy your pumpkin cravings. Recipe here.
Have a little extra time on your hands? Spice cakes are a delicious way of combining all of your favorite fall spices into one tasty treat. Add cream cheese frosting and autumn themed sprinkles, and you’ve got a dessert that is perfect to come home to after a chilly fall walk. Recipe here.
Apple Pie Bites
One of our favorites parts of fall is going to orchards to pick apples. Though we love biting into a fresh, crisp apple, we’re also fond of chopping them up to throw in the oven! This apple pie bite recipe, from Budget Savvy Diva, is perfect for when you’re craving the taste of apples, but with some added sweetness. Recipe here.
Note: We recommend slicing the apples a little thinner to made sure they are baked all the way through.
For the kids:
We know kids love to help out in the kitchen (especially with the eating) so we’ve included a couple of fall recipes perfect for the little ones.
Pumpkin Chocolate Covered Pretzels
These precious little pumpkins are super easy to make, and way too cute to pass up! If you’re a chocolate covered pretzel fan, this recipe is a must. All you need are pretzels, green M&M’s, and orange melting chocolate to create a pretty (and edible) pumpkin patch. Recipe here.
Pilgrim Hat Cookies
Last but not least, we whipped up a batch of pilgrim hats! These little cookies are perfect for Thanksgiving, and super simple to make. We hope you’re hungry! Recipe here.
