There’s something about fall weather that makes you want to whip up all the things in your kitchen – especially sweets and baked goods. Fall flavors are some of the best to play around. Apples, pumpkin, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg all add to the cozyness, making for a wonderful sweet treat. Get your home smelling like all things autumn with these four scary good desserts to whip up this month.

Apple Crumble

It is a sin to let fall pass you by without consuming large amounts of apple crumble. Grab some apples at your nearest farmers market for this one – a mix of sweet and tart works best. It’s a no-fuss favorite loved by all, perfect with a dollop of ice cream after your main course, or perhaps paired with yogurt for an early morning treat. The melt-in-your-mouth texture and sweetness is the icing on the cake.

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

These cookies are so pillowy-soft you won’t know what hit you when you take that first bite. These Pumpkin Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting feature an easy-to-whip-up batter that has lots of pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice in it. The cream cheese frosting completes this decadent fall treat. 

Fudgy Sweet Potato Brownies

These nutrient-rich brownies are made up of just 10 ingredients and offer a healthier alternative to your typical brownie. These super fudgy, naturally sweetened whole-grain treats are made with pureed sweet potato, cocoa powder, pecans, and chocolate chips to take it to the next level. If you’re a gluten-free chef, this is your recipe this fall.

Mini Pumpkin Pies

There might not be anything cuter this fall than these Mini Pumpkin Pies, and they’re much easier to make than the classic, full-size version. If you’re not into making the pie dough yourself, simply buy it at the store and get to baking right away.

These desserts are too good to pass up this October. Make your belly happy and fill your home with all the fall scents with these four delicious desserts. For more fall inspiration, check out the Sonoma Palms blog.
