The moment fall starts to roll around, it is time for us to get serious about desserts. No more excuses this time. We need to turn that oven on bake deserts to our heart’s content. Autumn is that time of year when we get the finest produce. It’s no wonder that lots of people celebrate food at this time. They host parties and invite people over just to flex their cooking and baking skills. Not to worry if you don’t have a lot of experience when it comes to fall desserts. In this piece of blog, I’m going to be giving you a bit of background, dessert ideas, and all that. 

Why I Love Fall Season

Fall has always been an exciting time for me. It’s that time of year when you get together with people you love the most (friends and family) and just have a good time, eating your favorite meals. It’s the time of year when you’ll be accompanying your mom to the groceries so you can buy all the ingredients needed to make your favorite desserts. 

And it’s not just me. Most of the people I know have a certain love for fall as well. The reason behind this is that fall is a landmark for how people use their time. Hence, it serves as a sort of motivation for people. Lots of people even think of fall as a new start. 

It’s sort of like a birthday or a new year celebration when people usually put everything behind them and try to pursue a fresh start. 

Another thing that we can all love about fall is the cool weather. Due to the cool feeling, most of us are inclined to invite our squad to the beach or any other tourist destination. It is certainly a time when people just go out to have a good time. 

Fall Desserts Can Be Healthy Too

It’s not just about booking hotels or going to the beach. When we say people just want to have a good time during fall, this can translate into people wanting to have a food gathering all the time. While we all love food, this can put a dent in the healthy lifestyle you are trying to maintain. Perhaps you are a health fanatic or maybe you simply just want to get into shape. Whatever it is, all the eating is certainly going to place a barrier between you and your goals. 

Naturally, that would be the case but you’d be very pleased to know that there is a way for you to enjoy fall desserts while still living your healthy lifestyle. 

Here are a couple of fall desserts that can serve your need for a healthy lifestyle:

  • Vegan Apple Cake

As you can see, this cake is 100% vegan so whether you are someone who wants a fit body or just a vegetarian, this dessert will be perfect for you. Despite being a vegan food, it is just as delicious as any other cake you’ll see out there. I’m even thinking of baking one for myself even if it is not fall just yet. 

  • Crustless Apple Pie

With a dessert as scrumptious as this one, you wouldn’t believe that it’s healthy food. But almost all of the ingredients are made out of organic food. That means it has fewer carbs and calories compared to regular apple pies. Come one and give it a bite. 

  • Gluten-Free Pumpkin Bars

I tasted these at a friend’s party once. I couldn’t stop eating them. I was surprised that these things were actually gluten-free. 

My Favorite Fall Desserts Of All Time

.I’m pretty sure you can’t wait to hear about my favorite fall desserts. Fall is just around the corner and we can all use a good old exchange on what to serve at the dinner table when the time comes around. 

  • Pumpkin Pie

This one is a classic. There is no way our fall dinner would be complete if we don’t have at least one piece of pumpkin pie. It’s one of the tastiest desserts ever created, I’m sure a lot of you will agree.

  • Pumpkin Cheesecake

And if there is pumpkin pie, there should also be some pumpkin cheesecake. Anything that has pumpkin on it, you might as well expect it to be on our dinner table. I love pumpkin cheesecake, even more, when it’s topped with whipped cream and caramel sauce. 

  • Apple Strudel

This one is just a dream. And what better way to make this dessert a whole lot better than by topping it with a scoop of ice cream. 

  • Apple-Cranberry Galette

We’ve had all the pumpkin desserts we can take. It’s time to bring to the table another fall classic and that is the Apple-Cranberry Galette. I love this so much I would usually serve it during fall as well as during Thanksgiving

How To Wow Dinner Guests With Fall Desserts

Sure, the fall is all about a new beginning as we’ve mentioned at the beginning of this article but during a time when people are visiting your house for a fancy dinner, you can’t help it to want to flex your baking skills. You really want to impress those guests. And there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. 

And so, here are some fall desserts that will certainly earn you lots of props from your dinner guests:

  • Skillet Cookie Sundaes

When you serve this, trust me. Your guests are going to be begging you for more. Your cooking will be the talk of the town.

  • Spiked Hot Chocolate

This isn’t exactly a dessert but it would be nice to have this at your table. After all, with all the goodies that you’ve prepared, your guests are going to appreciate gulping down some good old hot chocolate. 

  • Pumpkin Martini

If you have some younger guests that you want to impress then this pumpkin martini will most certainly do the trick. For teenagers and young adults, fall is not just about desserts but also about drinking booze with their friends.  See also Snacks Or Drinks For A Teenagers Party.
