These fall desserts are the autumn baking recipes—tarts and crumbles and cakes, oh my!—that we boast about the most.
Our definition of what the perfect apple crumble recipe ought to be—sweet, spicy, crunchy, tender, and lovely as can be.
Maple Walnut Squares
"Intensely maple-y.” "Amazing.“ “Much easier than making pie.” “A recipe I'll make again and again.” That’s what folks are saying about these spectacularly sweet and gooey maple walnut bars.
Rosemary Apple Hand Tarts
Individual apple pies that are subtly flavored, simple to toss together, and even a little sophisticated. Even better, you don't have to share yours. Not with anyone.
Frosted Apple Cake
A lightly spiced cake with chunks of tender apple that's smothered in what folks are calling the perfect cream cheese frosting. Sigh.
Root Beer Cake
This fetching cake contains sugar and spice and everything nice, yes, but it also has its share of sass. As in, sassafras.
Pear Parcels with Star Anise
Infused with spice, suffused with booze, and wrapped oh so neatly, this last course makes quite the lovely gift for guests to unwrap.
If you took a look at this stunning tart and thought, “I can’t possibly do that!” think again. We suspect you can.
Pear Almond Tart
French. Foolproof. Froufrou. Fuss-free. Fenomenal. (Work with us.) Rarely does elegance come together with such ease (and alliteration) as this tart recipe.
Maple Parsnip Cake
Though not quite as sweet as everyone’s beloved carrot cake, this unpretentious parsnip version never fails to wow.
Pear Tart With Blue Cheese and Honey
This lovely melding of cheese course and last course becomes even lovelier with a generous pour of port.
