57 Fall Dessert Recipes to Make This Autumn
Not to be a total bummer, but I’m always a little sad when autumn comes around. Don’t get me wrong, there are TONS of things I love about the season, but I always catch myself longing for those warm, sunny days of Summer to come back.
But, with Fall being officially here, it's time to embrace all that it has to offer. The main one for me being desserts.
Not only is there pumpkin everywhere (which automatically makes life ten times better #sorrynotsorry), but it's also the best time to bake with the air turning cool and crisp.
Baking when it’s 90 degrees outside? No thanks. But using an oven in the fall? No problem!
To keep myself focusing on all of the positive and delicious things Fall has to offer, I’ve come up with this amazing list of 57 Fall Desserts.
And, yes, I intend to make them all.
57 Fall Desserts
1. Pumpkin Roll

They're a classic for a reason! These cupcakes are soft and moist and spiced with plenty of pumpkins spice. Top with a creamy sweet cream cheese frosting to complete the classic combo!

Sweet potato cupcakes speckled with crunchy pecans and topped with a swirl of gooey caramel frosting encompasses all of the flavors of Fall in one bite!
The absolute best way to use up leftover cranberry sauce. The combination of creamy rich white chocolate cheesecake and tangy cranberry sauce is heavenly. Top with sugared cranberries for a gorgeous finish.
Sweet potato pie is a Southern staple. This one is topped with a brown sugar crumble topping, kind of like the one on a sweet potato casserole.
A dessert that looks elegant but is super easy to make. It's a fun pull-apart monkey bread with gooey caramel all over that's pretty enough to serve at a party, and fun enough for kids.
This is just about as healthy as you can get with a dessert! Baked spiced apples topped with a crunchy graham cracker crust. The sweetness comes right from the apples themselves, and they're so good baked with cinnamon.
If you've ever had pecan supreme pie at Baker's Square, this is like that! A layer of caramel-y pecan pie filling on the bottom, creamy cheesecake in the middle, and crunchy candied pecans on top.

These bars have a gooey caramel-like filling sitting on top of the softest butteriest crust. They're even better than a pecan pie!

You know how sweet potato casserole is topped with lots of gooey little marshmallows? Yeah, this is even better than that because it's a pie, and it's topped with BIG marshmallows.
