Mull Over These 8 Perfect Fall Desserts
By Cooking Panda
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.
Sept. 30 is National Hot Mulled Cider Day, and we feel it is important to celebrate! There’s just something so warming yet underrated about hot mulled cider, and you should absolutely check out what mulling spices have to offer.
This is a particularly great excuse to gorge on dessert when you’re feeling under the weather or fighting off a pesky fall cold, since the ginger, honey and vitamin C will sort you right out in no time.
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.
If you love apple pie but want to spice up your tried-and-true recipe, give this super flavorful alternative, complete with lemon zest and a few spices that do wonders to the apple filling without totally overpowering it.
Have some cherries leftover from summer? Sweet dessert wine with fresh or frozen cherries create a complementary sweet, tangy and complex sauce that is just divine when served atop a bed of ricotta cheese.
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.
Chewy cookie bars get a spiced twist with cinnamon, ginger, molasses and cloves. Delicious!
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.
