34 Fall Recipes That Will Get You Pumped for Sweater Weather

This year, there seems to be a keen interest in all things fall, with an early gravitation towards autumn-inspired recipes on Instagram, Pinterest and TikTok. We've seen food trends come and go, but what gets everyone excited for fall (and baking season) are the ingredients. Think: apples, pumpkin and all things squash.

While we're all holding fast to the dog days of summer, it's difficult to resist the warm fall flavors we adore. Pumpkin Spice and Apple Crisp drinks are already available from places like Starbucks, which announced its fall line-up in early August, in the dead of summer. I'm always ready for pumpkin, and included a few recipes to get you started, in this collection.

For those who may be a little more reluctant, take this opportunity to think outside of the pumpkin spice box with 34 of the best fall recipes you can make right now. There's a little something for everyone, from savory to sweet. Happy fall, y'all!

Best Fall Ingredients

  • Think fruit cobblers, crisps and crumbles.

  • Warm and chilled drinks, featuring the flavors of buttered rum, apple cider, cinnamon, chai and nutmeg.

  • Nuts are a must year-round but, their appeal grows exponentially for fall baking. Pecans, walnuts, chestnuts and pistachios just to name a few.

  • Ginger root not only adds depth of flavor to sweet and savory dishes but, it's credited for having medicinal qualities, too.

  • Root vegetables such as sweet potatoes, beets, parsnips and carrots can be drizzled with olive oil and roasted until fork tender, for a simple weekday side dish.

  • Butternut squash, cabbage, Brussels sprouts and fennel boast an array of uses.

  • Fresh fruit such as persimmons, cranberries, pears and apples are all delicious options that will take you from breakfast to dessert and everything in between.

  • The warm flavors of butterscotch, caramel, toffee and molasses.

  • Maple syrup is synonymous with the Northeast, where the autumn colors seem to celebrate this classic. Enjoy it drizzled on pancakes and ice cream or use it as a sweet glaze for pork chops and salmon.
