My Favorite Recipes for Fall

I just love fall!  The crisp cool air, the colors of the leaves, the fresh picked apples, pumpkin spice everything...

There are so many wonderful tastes that I associate with fall-- apples, pumpkins, cranberry, pecan, turkey, and squash... and I just love them all.



Here are some of my absolute favorite recipes for fall.

1.  Apple pie!  I am pretty particular about apple pie and prefer my mom's recipe (that I once shared here).



2.  Apple crisp.  Apple crisp is a real close second behind apple pie.  I love the crunchy crumbly topping and that fact that it goes together much quicker than apple pie.  When I'm craving warm apple goodness and don't have the energy to  make a pie I turn to apple crisp; but I like mine with extra crumb topping.


3.  Pecan Crusted Chicken. I love the crunch of the pecans with the tender chicken cutlet and that hint of cinnamon just makes this dish perfect for fall!


4.  Leftover Turkey Pie.  It has become a tradition in our house to make enough extra food on Thanksgiving to make at least 2 turkey pies!  We take all the leftovers from Thanksgiving and layer them into a delicious "pie."  


5.  Chocolate Chunk Butterscotch Blondies.  I stumbled upon this recipe last year when I found some Boo-ttersctoch M&M candies at Target last yer.  They were gone in no time because they were so darn delicious! 




I have a few other recipes that I just love and have not yet gotten around to sharing.  I hope to have them linked up soon but thought I'd list them here anyway!
  • Chocolate chip pecan pie-- yep, that ooey, gooey, pecan pie with added chocolate chips!
  • Butternut Squash muffins
  • Holiday stuffing with pecans and craisins
  • Pumpkin cheesecake
  • Pumpkin delight-- a light layered dish with cool whip, pudding, and a pecan crust
  • Crock pot turkey breast
  • Apple spice cupcakes with homemade caramel buttercream frosting
  • Snickerdoodle cupcakes with cinnamon buttercream frosting
  • Pumpkin spice Mousse Squares (I had to add these to the list once I made them!: I can not stop eating them).

What are your favorite fall recipes?  Any suggestions as to what we should try next?

  1. Yum! We do extra turkey for leftovers, too, but I turn ours into Turkey Enchilada Casserole. Again, probably that California Hispanic influence.

    1. We just recently started cooking turkey breasts in the crock pot and I have some leftover turkey around that I am hoping to make a turkey tetrazzini with.

    1. It's pretty good; especially with ice cream and warm caramel sauce on top!
