Fall is my favorite time of year for baking and cooking. Every year, I challenge myself to make all my pies from scratch (which rarely works out, but I'll master pie dough one day).
Fall baking brings back so many memories from my childhood. I remember baking my first pie with grandma one fall with the cherries from her cherry tree. Cooking and baking with your kiddos is so important, and one day they'll look back with fondness on all the recipes you created together.
These recipes range from simple and sweet to involved and gorgeous, but each one is delicious in their own autumn way. Hopefully they inspire you to create try some new fall recipes this year! Here they are:
I made these scones myself last week, and oh my goodness they were delicious. They were so simple, only took about 30 minutes to whip together, and perfectly buttery and flaky. I love how there isn't a ton of sugar in this recipe. I chose to eyeball the spices (because I always love adding more than the recipe asks!) and they turned out perfectly. My favorite non-pumpkin fall recipe as of late 🥰
