Fall Faves: 10 Recipes to Make Before Christmas

FALL! It’s officially here, in all it’s rainy, cooler, my-birthday-in-sight glory.

There are so many recipes on this bloggity blog that I love SO MUCH, and sometimes I hate that they get a little lost in the archives and the attention all goes to the latest recipe.  I want to share some of my absolute favourites for fall to save you time searching, the ones I’ve already made this season and the ones on my list to make over the next couple of weeks. Let’s see what we have here…

Pumpkin Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting. Until I added all that frosting, this was actually a rather healthy snacking cake.

Pumpkin Almond Granola. A fall twist on one of my breakfast/lunch/evening snack staples.

Apple Pie Muffins. My mom’s most-requested muffin recipe, these never disappoint.

Pumpkin Spice Breakfast Cakes. I wish I owned a Bed & Breakfast – when I do, these will be heavily featured.

PumpkinCCMuffinsBaked Pumpkin Oatmeal. A warm, easy, filling breakfast that will make your insides feel cozy.

Pumpkin Toffee Cheesecake. This has become a go-to Thanksgiving-or-any-fall-occasion dessert, and every time I’m amazed at it.

Homemade Applesauce. The easiest applesauce ever, made in minutes on the stove and perfect for last-minute small batches.

Which one will you make first?  Do you head for the pumpkin or the apple first for fall baking? Personally I’m head-over-heels for the apples, but pumpkin makes an enthusiastic appearance in my kitchen each year too.

With all these tried-and-true regulars, I do have a fancy new fall cookie recipe to share soon, because what would fall be without at least one new pumpkin recipe to try?  And we haven’t even started talking soups! I wish soups looked prettier in pictures. We’ll talk about them soon anyway, ok?  ‘Til then, friends :)

    Spring has sprung here in Australia & I’m so grateful for the sunshine & lure of outside sitting & dining but OMG, you’ve almost made me wistful about the yummy baked things that the cooler months bring with these.
