Other Great Fall Desserts

This pumpkin bread pudding is an excellent choice for fall. It can be a great dessert to bring to Thanksgiving, or to have with your family on a chilly day. Once you've given pumpkin bread pudding a try, consider making some other autumn desserts. If you want to continue using pumpkin, try making some pumpkin whoopie pies. Whoopie pies are often a hit with kids, since they're sweet and easy to eat.

Cinnamon sugar apple pie is a simple spin on a traditional apple pie. The use of cinnamon sugar in this recipe adds a totally new dimension to the pie, refreshing a classic to make it exciting again. If you want something that can double as a breakfast and a dessert, try making some cinnamon coffee cake.

Cranberry cobbler is a fall dessert that many might not think of when considering what fall desserts they can make. While cranberry cobbler isn't as common as peach cobbler, fresh peaches aren't really available in the fall. So, you'll have to settle for cranberry!

Want one last dessert to consider? Iced pumpkin cookies. These are really easy to make, and truly capture the flavors that you expect out of a fall dessert. If you have pumpkin left over from a pie you made, or you're just sick of pumpkin pie, iced pumpkin cookies are the way to go.
