Top 3 Gourmet Fall Dessert Recipes

Sorry summer lovers, but fall is here, and we couldn’t be more ready for it! Out of all the seasons, fall seems to be the most distinct. There’s a certain smell in the air when the seasons change toward Autumn, the leaves begin turning colors, and suddenly you’re craving savory gourmet deserts. It’s totally normal!

Summer is fun and all, but if we’re honest, most of us would rather sit in front of a crackling fire on an overcast Autumn day and indulge in a warm homemade pie. It’s the season of comfort foods, but which fall dessert recipes are the best? Let’s take a look!

When you think of fall dessert recipes, certain flavors and ingredients instantly come to mind. Halloween always inspires pumpkin pie cravings, and Thanksgiving isn’t Thanksgiving without at least one apple dessert on the table. Nothing says Autumn quite like maple though, whether it’s syrup on a stack of hot pancakes or gooey frosting on a donut.

These are classic fall dessert recipes, but if you really want to raise the bar, try some of our new favorites and change things up this Autumn season.

Best Fall Dessert Recipes


  • 6 large apples (or 12 small apples)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup quick cooking oatmeal
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted

Will Need

  • Baking dish
  • Mixing bowls
  1. Begin by preheating your oven to 350°, and start peeling, coring, and slicing your apples. Try to cut the apples into equal-sized pieces so they all cook evenly, then place them into your baking dish.
  2. Using a small bowl, mix together 1/2 cup granulated sugar, 1 tablespoon flour, and one teaspoon cinnamon. Sprinkle the mixture over your apples in the baking dish and toss to combine.
  3. Combine the rest of your ingredients into another bowl and mix until crumbly. Evenly top the apple slices with the oatmeal mixture.
  4. Bake for 45 minutes, and voila! Best served warm.


  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon  cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar

Will Need

  • Small saucepan
  • Large measuring cup
  • Six ramekins (custards cups)
  • Shallow pan
  • Kitchen torch
maple spice creme brulee
  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Heat cream and maple syrup in a saucepan over medium heat until small bubbles start forming around the edge. Then, remove from heat.
  2. Whisk eggs, egg yolks, cinnamon, and vanilla in a large measuring cup. Slowly whisk warm cream into the mixture and blend.
  3. Using your 6 ramekins, pour your mixture into each cup evenly. Set the ramekins on a shallow baking sheet, and put water in the pan until the cups are halfway covered in water.
  4. Bake for around 30 minutes until the sides are cooked but the center still looks wet. Remove the cups from the water, let them cool on a rack for a few minutes. Cover the cups and place them in the refrigerator for anywhere between three hours to two days.
  5. Before serving, sprinkle sugar over each cup, and use a kitchen torch to heat the sugar until it bubbles and browns.
  6. Enjoy!


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin spice
  • 3 eggs
  • 2/3 cup pumpkin puree
  • 8 ounces softened cream cheese
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (for sauce)

Will Need

  • 15″ x 10″ sheet pan
  • Cooking spray
pumpkin cheesecake roll
  1. Preheat your oven to 350° and line a 15” x 10” sheet pan with parchment and grease with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Combine flour, sugar, baking soda, eggs, pumpkin spice, and pumpkin puree in a large bowl. Spread the mixture out onto your prepared baking sheet and bake for about 15 minutes.
  3. Cover a non-textured kitchen towel in powdered sugar. When the cake is done baking, flip it onto the towel so the top gets evenly covered in powdered sugar.
  4. Gently but tightly roll your cake into a log, starting at a short end. Let it cool completely.
  5. Making the filling: Combine cream cheese, melted butter, vanilla, powdered sugar, and salt into a large bowl and whip until smooth.
  6. Unroll cooled cake and spread cream cheese mixture evenly. Roll the cake back up, cover with more powdered sugar, slice into pieces, and dig in!
