60 Favorite Fall Dessert Recipes
A roundup of my favorite fall dessert recipes including bars, cakes, cookies, candy, cheesecake, pastries, cupcakes, pie and even ice cream!
Do you mourn Labor Day weekend as the end of summer, or do you get excited at the thought of ushering in the fall season? While fall doesn’t technically begin until September 23rd, I think the majority of us see Labor Day as the unofficial start to the season. And what better way to kick off the start-of-fall-weekend than to share with you my favorite fall desserts!
Fall baking is highlighted by flavors like cinnamon, apples, pumpkin and maple, and you’ll find all of those and more in the roundup below. Get ready for hot chocolate, hay rides, cozy hoodies and lots of baking!

Thank you for the list. I was literally just thinking that I needed to bake your amazing Apple Cinnamon Bread the day this list appeared in my inbox! It really is one of the best recipes ever!
Thanks for these recipes. I love it
I’m definitely bookmarking this. My favorite fall dessert is pumpkin pie. Boring, but delicious! Thanksgiving is hands down my favorite holiday. Bring on fall!
Yum yum yum! Would it be bad if I made a goal to make every single one of these?
I think that’s an awesome goal :)
Are there enough days in Fall for all these great recipes, great job… Trifle will go to a family reunion this month.
Thank you for gathering these wonderful fall recipes into one place. They all look so beautiful. I love the pumpkin oatmeal bars. Last night I was laying in bed thinking about your maple walnut ice cream which I am going to make today. So looking forward to fall.
Thanks for these recipes. Fall baking flavors are my favorites!
No way I could chose a favorite fall dessert but I am going to make your Apple Dumplings for my sister who’s visiting next week!
