10 Fall Desserts Recipes

These fall desserts are the autumn baking recipes—tarts and crumbles and cakes, oh my!—that we boast about the most.

Apple Crumble

Our definition of what the perfect apple crumble recipe ought to be—sweet, spicy, crunchy, tender, and lovely as can be.
Recipe

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.
Recipe

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.
Recipe

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.
Recipe

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.
Recipe

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.
Recipe

Apple Tart

If you took a look at this stunning tart and thought, “I can’t possibly do that!” think again. We suspect you can.
Recipe

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.
Recipe

Maple Parsnip Cake

Though not quite as sweet as everyone’s beloved carrot cake, this unpretentious parsnip version never fails to wow.
Recipe

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.
