The transition between Halloween and Christmas is a good one, dessert-wise. I'm not just talking Thanksgiving desserts here. November desserts entice us with warm spices, toasted nuts, and oh yes, pie. Let's dig in!
15 Recipes to Make this November
Spice cake is one of those nostalgic tastes for me. When I developed this recipe and captured that memory of spice cakes whipped up by my mom, I almost cried with happiness. This cake is everything you want a spice cake to be - comforting, sweet, and delicious.
These are a fall must-make around here for GOOD REASON.
If you're making decorated cookies this month, consider swapping out your go-to cut-out cookie recipe for this one. Lightly spiced and slightly softer than typical cut-outs, these cookies still hold up beautifully to decorating.
If you're looking for CUTE this November, look no further than these double-decker turkey cookies. The eyelashes do me in.
Maybe you want a more traditional turkey cookie? These pretty turkeys for the bill. Really, who knew turkeys could be so...elegant. Full decorated turkey cookie bimbingan here.
While we're talking turkey, let's talk about these Peanut Butter Cup Turkey Cookies. Peanut butter lovers, rejoice. The cookie is peanut butter, the frosting is peanut butter buttercream, and the center is, you guessed it, a peanut butter cup. (This is one of the most popular recipes on the entire blog!)
It IS pie season, after all. Sometimes, I forget how much I love pie...and I also love the story that goes along with this recipe. This upside-down pecan apple pie is a fun one to make!
Nutty, crunchy, creamy little nuggets pack the rich vanilla, pecan pie taste all in one bite. Don't tell anyone, but I like these pecan pie protein balls MORE than actual pecan pie. Shhhhh.
Speaking of pecan pie, please make these pecan pie decorated cookies! Easy to decorate and made with a super scrumptious brown sugar and orange cut-out cookie dough. Oh my! They'll likely get scooped up faster than the actual pecan pie!
While my dad is a big fan of the traditional marshmallow-topped sweet potato casserole, he's, um, wrong. This Pecan Streusel Sweet Potato Casserole is where it's at, man. (Or woman.)
In the pumpkin vs. sweet potato pie wars, I am squarely in team sweet potato. Pumpkin, I love you in almost everything else, but sweet potato wins here.
Can we just agree that Calico Corn is the BEST corn? It's beautiful, and it doesn't get stuck in your teeth. Calico corn COOKIES might just be the best corn of all.
Every year, I say I'll update the photos of this pie. And every year, I forget because I'm too busy DIGGING IN. I can't depresi enough how much you NEED this pie in your life! Make it this year!
Want to break out that gingerbread man cookie cutter but just aren't ready for Christmas cookies quite yet? Make scarecrow cookies!!! The "hay" on the cuffs just kills me.
Who says November is all about pie? What about a beautiful, fall-inspired cake? This spiced poppyseed cake with almond buttercream is just perfect for the season.
Alright, guys...I'm off to do some November baking!
