I thought it would be a good idea to start a thread of some of your favorite fall desserts, just for fun. I love baking, and fall is my favorite time of year, so I have lots of good recipes – but I’m always up for trying something new.
I’m hosting a small get together in a couple days, and I’m trying to decide what I want to make! This group has gotten together every week for the past few weeks, so I’m starting to run out of ideas. One of our guests is lactose intolerant, so I need something without milk or cream chease or anything of the sort. She’s said she can tolerate butter with no problem, so it shouldn’t be too hard!
My normal go to’s for fall are apple pie (which I made a couple weeks ago for this group), pumpkin pie (which has heavy cream and sour cream), pumpkin pie dip (has cream cheese and cool whip), and pumpkin chocolate chip cookies (I made pumpkin sugar cookies for this group last month, so I kinda don’t want to do another pumpkin cookie!).
The two things I’m leaning toward are – pumpkin bread with chocolate chips or snickerdoodle blondies (those aren’t really fall, but it doesn’t HAVE to be something fall-ish).
What are your favorites?

I make a french silk pie every year for our holiday festivities!
This is the recipe I use, and it is quite labor intensive, TBH (you have to beat each egg for 5 full minutes, a total of 20 minutes) but if you have a stand mixer that’s no great feat (I don’t so it is for me haha)
It is SOOOO good, but you *cannot* reduce the mixing time, it will ruin it, you have to follow the directions to a T or it will be very sugar-grainy in texture 🙂 When done right it’s soooo heavenly and I like to put it in an oreo crust for extra chocolate goodness 😉

Sticky toffee pudding! (With dates and salted toffee caramel sauce!) – it can be made to work with non-dairy “butter” etc like here – http://iseehungrypeople.net/2016/12/05/gordon-ramsays-dairy-free-sticky-toffee-pudding/

ElephantAndTheFlea : I have a pretty good chocolate pie recipe that I like to make for Christmas, but I’ve never attempted a french silk pie. I did just get a stand mixer so I’m totally saving this recipe! Yummm
emmabird : I haven’t had apple crisp in such a long time! But the apple pie I make is a salted caramel apple crumble pie, so it’s almost like a apple crisp pie!
bellabobies : I’ve never had this, but I do love pretty much anything with caramel, so it sounds delicious!

futuremrss17 : it’s a British institution of a dessert, and a very easy one dish+ sauce – if you can serve it hot with (dairy free) vanilla ice cream, all the better!

bellabobies : Souzie : After looking this up and looking at photos of sticky toffee pudding, I’m wondering how I’ve never had this! My mouth is watering now

I love apple pie and pumpkin pie but others are sticky toffee pudding, treacle tart or bread and butter pudding (dairy free alternatives) using some sweet bread like brioche. You could try making a Panettone cake too (I tend to associate it more with winter than fall but still good). I also make this raspberry croissant pudding thats absolutely delicious but I dont think theres anyway to avoid milk or cream for it.

Im lactose intolerant as well and vegan “butter” is my best friend!

I love bread pudding when it gets cooler outside. Actually I love it any time of year, but its especially good around the holidays.

What about a yummy crisp? My dad makes them all the time and they are delicious. You could do apple, pear, peach, Cherry, or any combination of fruits.

Pecan pie is a fall/Thanksgiving favorite for me and this one is BONKERS good, and no dairy except butter, so hopefully your friend would enjoy it! You can add chocolate chips to it to make it a Derby Pie, which is also insanely good.
