The simple act of tying apron strings connects us to generations of Southerners who have known the importance of a made-from-scratch sweet treat. As autumn approaches, we look to the harvest with its crisp apples, luscious pears, versatile sweet potatoes, and plentiful pumpkins to inspire our dessert menus.
We’ve rounded up some delicious goodies inspired by our favorite fall flavors from our Southern Recipes Autumn special issue! Try traditional treats like our Pistachio Cake with Honey Buttercream or Pear Cobbler with Streusel Topping. Or opt for some fun innovations like our Sweet Potato Gingerbread with Maple Pecan Butter Sauce, Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream, and S’more Cupcakes!
While you’re planning your get-togethers, we hope these recipes will inspire opportunities to cook up some wonderful memories with those you love.
