Hungry yet? It may not even technically be Fall yet, but the baking bug is strong! I had my first pumpkin coffee the other day and all of a sudden my head is filled with apple desserts, pumpkin cupcakes and cinnamon dusted pastries. You guys are definitely ready for the apple goods too, because those apple crisp cheesecake bars are by far the most popular kid in class right now! I have a few new apple desserts I’ve been working on that I cannot wait to share, but for today I wanted to share some of your favorites from seasons past so you can dig in this weekend! I can smell the cinnamon already!
There’s a lot to choose from, but all I know is Boozy Apple Pie Milkshakes are happening this weekend! And the Halloween inspired caramel apples – how soon is too soon, because I am so ready!
Let’s kick things off with the classic Apple Crisp Bars! These are still the first Fall dessert I make and I cannot even tell you how many I make throughout the season. Top them off with a scoop of ice cream for the ultimate treat!
Filled with warm Fall spices, packed with apples and topped with an epic amount of crumb, Apple Cinnamon Crumb Cake is a must for brunch. It’s also one of those cakes I always find myself wandering back into the kitchen for just one more little piece…
Apple Spice Loaf Cake is another go-to for brunch or dessert. Within 10 minutes of baking, your house will smell like apple heaven and I’m all about that crispy top. And the bourbon. Did I mention this one’s got a little somethin’ extra in there? That little zip of bourbon will warm ya right up!
Are you a fan of perfectly soft and chewy oatmeal cookies packed with flavor? Then you’re going to want to get to know Fall Harvest Oatmeal Cookies! They’re packed with applesauce, cranberries, walnuts and dark chocolate – I mean they’re basically health food 😉
Cinnamon dusted apples, brown sugar shortbread and vanilla bean cheesecake all tucked under a blanket of crisp topping! Apple Crisp Cheesecake Bars might just be the ultimate Fall bar. Everything you love about apple crisp and cheesecake packed into one unbelievable hand held treat, and one of the most popular recipes to date on Buttercream Blondie!
Caramel Apple Dream Cake is exactly that, my friends! It’s made up of 3 layers of tender apple cake layered with the most luscious caramel cream cheese frosting ever! Finished off with even more homemade caramel sauce, this is one of the many reasons I believe in always eating dessert first!
Caramel apples are a must this time of year, and they’re even better when they’re dipped in chocolate and about a million sprinkles! Let’s be serious, sprinkles make everything better! And how pretty would these festive Halloween Caramel Apples look at your Halloween party?
Peanut Butter Turtle Caramel Apples are completely next level. All I know is these decadent treats should come with some kind of warning label! Dipped in caramel, chocolate, peanut butter chips and toasted pecans, they make fantastic gifts for the holidays too!
While they’re not technically dessert, there’s no way I could do an apple post without my favorite Apple Pie Pancakes! I love them for breakfast, brunch, or dinner, and that apple pie topping is kick-ass on top of ice cream!
If we’re going to start the day with apple pie pancakes, I think it’s only fitting that we end it with Boozy Apple Pie Milkshakes!
Can we talk about that caramel apple dream cake? The frosting alone is all sorts of heaven on a spoon! Any other apple, or pumpkin requests? Over on Instagram, there were rumblings of a pumpkin pie cupcakes – is that something you guys would like me to share?
I hope you guys enjoy these! Thanks so much to everyone who has already baked many of these, and remember to follow along on Instagram and make sure to tag me when you upload your bakes! I love seeing your pics!
