It’s been a couple of weeks since I ran a Bites from other Blogs feature! As much as I enjoy them, it was nice to take a little bit of a break. Can you believe that this is my 450th post in this topic? That is over 8 years of shared recipes. But today I’m back at it, so get your bookmarks ready for some fall recipes!
- Apple desserts are always welcome at my table and I certainly wouldn’t turn down a piece of this Apple Kuchen from Living Tastefully. The easy to make cake is made with honey, lemon and both fresh and candied ginger. This is a deliciously spicy base that pairs very well the the apples that are neatly tucked into the batter before baking. The finished cake is beautiful to look at and even more delicious to eat, ready for any fall occasion – even just a coffee break.
- I have a couple of friends who go crazy when they see a skillet cookie and I have a feeling that this Coconut Caramel Pumpkin Oatmeal Skillet Cookie from Melanie Makes would be an instant hit. The cookie is baked in a skillet and is meant to be eaten with a spoon, shared with friends. This cookie is loaded with all kinds of goodies, giving the pumpkin oatmeal cookie base lots of extra flavors. Serve the cookie with ice cream and, if you’re feeling indulgent, a drizzle of caramel sauce.
- When you’re busy with apple desserts, don’t forget that pears are a wonderful fall fruit, as well! Over at Cooking LSL, you’ll find a recipe for Pear Mouse Cheesecake Bars. that offer plenty of fall flavors. The bars start with a graham cracker crumb base and are topped with a light, tangy cheesecake mixture. The cheesecake layer is baked and cooled, then topped with a pear ousse that is made from fresh, ripe pears and kissed with cinnamon. Thin pear slices make an attractive garnish if you’re going to be serving the bars right away, but you can serve them as-is, as well.
- Mini cupcakes are a good choice when you need to serve a crowd because they’re the perfect finger food size and one recipe tends to yield quite a few cupcakes. If you like chocolate, give Bessie Bakes‘ Chocolate Browned Butter Smores Cupcakes a try. The rich mini cupcakes deliver a solid dose of chocolate in each bite. and are topped with piles of marshmallowy meringue. The finishing touches here are a dollop of chocolate ganache and a dusting of crushed pretzels, which give the cupcakes a salty-sweet flavor. If you want to be a ltitle more traditional with your s’mores, top the cupcakes with graham cracker crumbs instead.
- Recipe Throwback: If you’re looking for a Halloween dessert, look no further than these Cinnamon Bone Cookies with “Blood” Dipping Sauce. The tender shortbread cookies are baked in a bone-shaped cookie pan, then paired with a homemade raspberry sauce that makes the final dessert look quite spooky. Cinnamon and raspberries are a delicious combination of sugar and spice, too.
