"Wonderful," "heavenly," and "great twist on the cinnamon roll," were all phrases our editors used to describe these sweet treats loaded with great apple flavor.

Caramel-Pecan Pumpkin Cheesecake Bites
Our Test Kitchen staff says these pecan pastries are "like mini pumpkin pies topped with a caramel-pecan topping." They work well as appetizers at a party or as an after-dinner treat.
Maple flavoring takes a simple cheesecake from ho hum to oh, yum! Our Test Kitchen staff recommends bringing all the ingredients to room temperature before preparing to ensure they incorporate properly.
Curried Squash Muffins
We just couldn't keep these spiced muffins to ourselves! An irresistible mixture of cinnamon and curry mingles with sweet, tender squash for a taste that's everything we love about fall.
What flavor says fall more than fresh apples? We can't get enough of the seasonal fruit, especially when added to rich, creamy potato gratin along with savory bacon and Gruyere cheese.
Dulce de Leche-Hazelnut-Pumpkin Pie
Take it from a taster: "Oh my gosh! Lovely, interesting, yummy, delicious -- this pie has great flavor and pretty garnishes -- a home run!" says one of our editors. We love the way it combines traditional pumpkin pie with the rich flavors of hazelnut and dulce de leche.

Bright lemon and dill combine to make the zesty gremolata that tops our favorite creamy fall soup. As one tester says, "It's the best roasted mushroom soup I've ever had!"
Make-It-Mine Streusel Pie
You'll love how easy and versatile this delicious dessert is -- we certainly do! Our Test Kitchen staff describes it as "a great streusel-topped fruit pie that you can mix and match to your desired tastes." Different flavor options include blueberry, rhubarb, apple, and cherry.
Orange-Hazelnut French Silk Pie
Our panel loves the way zesty orange perfectly complements rich hazelnut and chocolate in this French silk pie. For wow factor, we recommend topping with piped whipped cream and candied orange peel.

Toffee-Pear Sticky Pudding
We're head over heels for this sweet-and-sticky pudding. A fresh date and pear reduction fills the dessert; rich toffee and pear make up the indulgent sauce that's drizzled on top.
Quince Skillet Tart with Savory Prosciutto Pastry
The secret to this savory brunch tart? According to our Test Kitchen staff, it's quince, which tastes like a cross between an apple and a pear, and should be peeled and cooked for optimum flavor. We're also obsessed with the finely chopped prosciutto found in the flaky crust of this delicious tart.
Pumpkin Latte Coffee Cake
Make the perfect fall coffee cake with just one simple addition -- pumpkin! Our Test Kitchen staff suggests making it in advance: Simply prepare and cool the cake as directed, but omit the coffee drizzle until serving.
