11 Fall Treats To Help Kick Off the Season in the Most Delicious Way Possible

Every year I promise myself that I'll really make an effort to celebrate the autumn season. Bring on the cinnamon, vanilla, and plaid shirts! But when fall finally rolls around, I usually end up getting caught up in the rush of life and it seems, sadly, all my pumpkin spice aspirations fall by the wayside.

This year, however, will be different! This year, I’m prepared. I’ve rounded up 11 fall treats to start baking right now (or at least, after this surprise heat wave is over), because when it comes to fall flavors (think cinnamon, crisp apples, and anything pumpkin), there’s a whole lot of goodness to be consumed between now and December. And who knows! After giving these recipes a try, I might even become the type of person who bakes pies all the time!
