12 Dessert Recipes for Fall

dessert recipes for fall

On my run this morning I had a little brainstorming session. Does it count as brainstorming if you are all by yourself? Well that is what I am calling it.

No I did not have some world-changing, life-altering revelation. I am not quitting my blog or dropping out of school. Nor am I getting married and having a baby. Although that seems to be the thing to do lately, I am content with my independence.

Anyways, what I really thought about was how whether we are conscious of it or not, there has been a shift from fall to winter, which means a shift from fall desserts to holiday desserts. And by “holiday” what I actually mean is Christmas. This was pretty darn apparent as I jogged along, concentrating on dry pavement to avoid slipping on the ice and cracking my head open. In Calgary we have two seasons; winter and everything else. Believe me, I am not complaining, I love it. I am at the point in my life where if the weather was such a deal-breaker, I would move. But I can take snow in July so I am staying put.

Back to the dessert thing, man I am all over the map today! As I was saying, we are slowly phasing out fall things like pumpkin and moving into gingerbread-y, peppermint-y, shortbread-y, eggnog-y Christmas treats. Before I complete the switch, I wanted to do a compilation of all of my dessert recipes for fall. We have already had our Thanksgiving here in Canada but I know that many of my American readers are still planning out their Thanksgiving menus. So if you are still trying to decide what to serve for dessert, or have yet to be exposed to winter and are still enjoying the bounties of fall, here are 12 dessert recipes for fall. Enjoy!
