23 Easy Fall Baking Recipes to Make on Chilly Days
Maple-Glazed Baked Apples
Turn your bag of orchard-fresh apples into an easy fall dessert using only five ingredients. Maple syrup, cider, and butter create the bubbly homemade glaze, while cinnamon sticks inserted into the tops give these individual apple desserts a mini pumpkin vibe.
Italian Parmesan Pretzels
Fall baking isn't all about sweets—thanks to frozen bread dough, this elevated game-day snack (perfect for fall tailgating) can be prepped in 15 minutes. Brush the puffy pretzels in butter and a sprinkling of cheesy-garlic seasonings before popping into the oven.
Pumpkin Latte Coffee Cake
Apple Scones with Spiced Maple Butter
Here's a fall baking idea to add to your fall brunch menu. Flaky, tender scones are dotted with sweet-tart apples and infused with warm apple pie spice flavor. Served with homemade spiced maple butter, good luck stopping at just one of these fall treats.
Maple-Nut Pie Bars
Easy Apple-Cranberry Slab Pie
Slab pies are an easy fall dessert for when you've got company but want to avoid dirtying multiple pans to feed everyone a slice. To keep prep time to a minimum, we utilize purchased frozen puff pastry for the ultimate buttery crust. Dried cranberries add a nice zingy taste to the sweet apple filling.
Melt-in-Your Mouth Pumpkin Cookies
Say hello to your new favorite fall cookie recipe. (With nearly 700 ratings to date, you really can't go wrong.) Aside from a can of pumpkin, this fall cookie idea uses only pantry staples and a fresh smear of cinnamon-sprinkled frosting.
Nutty Honey Mini Rolls
Refrigerated crescent dough is the key to keeping the ingredient count low in this easy fall dessert. The mini cinnamon rolls have an irresistible crunchy bite with the addition of chopped toasted almonds in the filling. A drizzle of honey icing makes these the perfect fall treat to go with your morning cup of coffee.
Baklava Monkey Bread
Baklava is a traditional Greek dessert of phyllo dough layered with nuts and coated in a honey syrup. Here we've used those flavors as inspiration for our easy fall baking recipe. Stacks of canned biscuits (another excellent shortcut ingredient) get the baklava treatment with walnuts, pistachios, and that signature sweet syrup.
Chai-Infused Chocolate Pots de Creme
Enjoy warm and comforting chai spices (ginger, cardamom, cinnamon, pepper, and cloves) in this delicious fall dessert recipe. The creamy custard base calls for egg yolks, so it's an easy way to use them if you've recently made a recipe using only egg whites. Since these fall treats are chilled, you can easily make them in advance.
Caramelized Pear Skillet Cake
Caramel-Nut Chocolate Chip Bars
Forget the candy bar and reach for something more indulgent. This rich fall dessert recipe features some of your favorite ingredients, including flaky coconut, honey-roasted peanuts, chunky chocolate chips, and creamy caramel.
Sweet Potato Brownies
Cranberry Chai Cupcakes
Gluten Free Pumpkin-Walnut Streusel Muffins
Peppered Pear Scones with Pear Conserve
Cheddar-Crusted Apple-Pomegranate Galette
Cast-Iron Figgy Brie Rolls
Brie makes a creamy, bubbly filling for these golden honey rolls. Best of all, we've added fig and fresh sage to enhance the flavor of these fall baked goods.
Autumn Pumpkin Bars
A tantalizing trio of savory cheeses (white cheddar, blue, and Parmesan) give these peppery almond-coated fall cookies ultra-creamy tang. Sweeten them with a spoonful of raspberry preserves. It might sound a bit weird, but we promise you'll be reaching for seconds as soon as you give one a try.
Whole-Wheat Spice Bars with Maple-Cream Icing
Take comfort this chilly season with irresistible molasses-maple bars. Give them a little extra flair by spreading on our maple-cream icing, or use stencils to make powdered sugar leaves on the yummy fall dessert.
