Now that fall is in full swing, it’s time to grab a mug full of something warm and spicy, curl up by the fireplace with a nice book and argue to the death about pumpkin spice.

Sound about right? Good. Whether or not you love fall — admit it, you love wearing sweaters and watching the leaves change — then you’ll need to check out some of our favorite desserts featuring all the good stuff that’s in season right now.

3. Mulled Muscadines with Fried Crostini and Creamy Goat Cheese


Try your best to find muscadines (wine grapes) if possible, but if you are unable, this recipe would be pretty nice with red currant or pears too.

4. Maple-Ginger Apple Pie

Upside Down Cheesecake Apple Pie! This really is the most amazing dessert ever! Cheesecake and apples make the most amazing pie filling wrapped in a flaky crust!

Besides the insanely delicious sweet-creamy-tangy-caramel combo, you get to flip this bad boy upside down, which means you don’t have to go through all that cheesecake cooking nonsense and worry about how it’s going to look.

7. Spice Bars

Chewy cookie bars get a spiced twist with cinnamon, ginger, molasses and cloves. Delicious!

8. Pecan Pie Bread Pudding

This is basically pecan pie filling poured over bread and turned into pudding. So not only is it moist, flavorful and delicious, but it’s also waaaay easier than baking an actual pie.
