Fall Tastes Like…

Mouthwatering Recipes That Taste Like Fall

That first bite of pumpkin pie. Or the Thanksgiving leftovers you eat for a week. Fall foods are so distinct (and delicious) that you can’t wait for the season to start. Here, is the compiled list of our favorite flavors and the fall recipes that feature them. Some spotlight multiple fall flavors, and to that we say: The more the merrier!

1. Maple

maple syrup custard

Maple syrup custard with caramel and toasted hazelnuts on top — it’s pure fall in a cup. The recipe makes six servings, but if you eat more than one, we won’t blame you!

2. Apple
baked apple bowl pies

Traditional fall dessert in mini form! The apples are tender but still hold their shape in the spiced caramel and hazelnut filling.

3. Squash
butternut squash risotto

Butternut squash and mascarpone cheese make this recipe super soft and creamy. Plus, pairing the squash with noodles makes it a hearty side dish.

Editor’s Tip: Substitute softened cream cheese if you don’t have mascarpone on hand.

4. Hazelnut
hazulnut truffle cake

This dessert packs in the fall flavor: hazelnut liqueur, hazelnut spread, ground hazelnut, and, if you’d like, toasted chopped hazelnuts on top!

5. Brown Sugar
brown sugar glazed ham

As if ham doesn’t remind you of fall already, add some brown sugar and red wine vinegar to really celebrate the season. Plus, it only takes four ingredients and 10 minutes of prep time.

6. Apple Cider

These doughnout holes get their rich flavor from two cups of apple cider and a whole apple. After coating them in cinnamon-sugar, choose from one of the two heavenly dipping sauces.

7. Cinnamon

Adding this classic autumn spice turns chicken into a fabulous fall dinner. And serving it over pumpkin grits doesn’t hurt!

8. Cranberry
cranberry pretzel pie

Pie is arguably the best part of autumn. Cranberry sauce and a pretzel crust make a tart-and-salty pair. On top, sugared cranberries preview the flavors inside.

9. Pears
turkey peqar and cheese salad

Pears sometimes play second fiddle to standout fall fruits (thanks, apples and squash), but this salad lets them shine.

10. Pumpkin

Nothing beats a classic! Pumpkin butter and quick-cooking rolled-oats pastry take this pumpkin pie recipe to the next level.

11. Cauliflower

Roasting cauliflower with onion and cranberries turns it into an easy, healthy side for crisp autumn nights. Plus, it only takes 15 minutes of prep time.

12. Bacon

You can never have too much bacon — so why not add it to dessert? The salted meat tastes oh, so good on top of maple-flavor cake pops.

13. Caramel

These salted caramel, chocolate, and bourbon cupcakes are packed with flavor. To match the beautiful presentation, pipe a border of fudge frosting around the edges, then spoon a teaspoon of salted caramel into the center. Then lightly sprinkle with sea salt!

14. Beer
beer glazed sausage and apples

There’s something about cracking open a good fall beer on a crisp autumn night. But cook Belgium-style wheat beer for a few minutes and it turns into a delicious glaze for seared sausage, cooked apples, and green beans.

15. Carrots
harvest carrot cake with skillet fruits

Carrot cake is already a fall dessert. Add pumpkin, sweet potato, walnuts, and brown sugar to really make it celebrate the season.

16. Ham

Serve ham a new way this season. The ham and cheese are perfectly complemented by honey mustard in this make-and-take marvel.
