Baked pumpkin spice donuts
This is one of my favorite pumpkin recipes, because these delicious pumpkin donuts are so moist and a great way to start the day. I made these for a spring party at a friends house and they were a hit! These pumpkin donuts are so moist and delicious! While I do love a crunchy donut, these baked pumpkin donuts are so pillow soft and I believe, the perfect way to make baked donuts at home.
With pumpkin as the base of the recipe the donuts are coated in cinnamon sugar.

Want an extra pizzazz on top of these pumpkin donuts? Drizzle tangy cream cheese frosting or cream cheese buttercream over the top to add the extra wow factor!
I’ve probably already said it, but these donuts are my favorite fall donut recipe.
Copycat Starbucks Pumpkin bread
It’s pumpkin season! This Copycat Starbucks Pumpkin Bread is by far the best pumpkin bread I have ever made! And this homemade version is pretty darn close to the real Starbucks pumpkin bread. This pumpkin bread is a thick, moist bread, and tastes just like Fall in all the right places.
When making this copycat Starbucks pumpkin loaf, I was nervous because the pumpkin bread is so iconic during the fall season. I wanted to make sure to give the homemade version of Starbucks’ pumpkin bread justice! I do have to say, this copycat version is by far my favorite pumpkin bread!
The Best Pumpkin Pie Crunch
Thanksgiving pies are so iconic in the autumn months. How can you not have thanksgiving dinner, or even Fall without thanksgiving pies!. Well, if you are a pumpkin desserts fan, then this pumpkin pie crunch recipe is the perfect Fall dessert for you! This pumpkin dessert is similar to a pumpkin dump cake recipe, but with some twists to it!
I’m pretty sure I can categorize this pumpkin dessert as one of the best pumpkin dessert recipes my husband has ever had. The catch? He doesn’t even like pumpkin! But he thought this was a delicious dessert! He even compared it to my mother-in-law’s dessert yams, which are HEAVEN!
And you know the best part about this flavorful pumpkin crunch cake recipe? You only need one bowl and a handful of simple ingredients to make it!
I’m not sure what’s better during a busy holiday season.. having all your shopping done early or being able to make a delicious dessert using one bowl and one baking dish. Seriously! It’s got to be amazing to do that. And LESS DISHES in the sink to wash! I am totally game for that because I HATE washing dishes.
This pumpkin cake is a moist cake using pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, and crunchy pecans on top.
Mini Dutch Apple Pies
Apple pie is so warm, welcoming, and great for gathering. If you’re wanting to still make classic apple pie during the holidays, but wanting to bring a different twist to it, then this mini dutch apple pie is perfect for your holiday gathering! These pies are also single serving pies! Everyone will get their own pie and know one has to worry about someone else touching their piece. Plus they would look very cute on a holiday table. Think of this recipe similar to an easy apple tart recipe. Just with extra crunch on top.
Top with a caramel drizzle and a nice big scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Easy Homemade Cool Whip
Living in the South in the summer is hot, hot, hot. With the eager desire to constantly leave the oven off and only eat cool refreshing foods and different desserts, is one of the reasons why I created this easy homemade cool whip recipe. This dish is the perfect topping for your favorite desserts, fresh fruit, ice cream, or even by itself!
In all honesty, when I was a kid I very much disliked the tub of whip cream at the grocery store. I much preferred whipped cream in the can. But when we moved to the South (and maybe with age), cool whip has become a favorite of mine. It’s been a delicious addition to many desserts here at home! This recipe is the easiest way I’ve been able to make homemade cool whip. It’s inexpensive and quick to make! This dessert is light and airy, fluffy, and silky smooth with a hint of vanilla.
Chocolate Cream Pie
Made with an Oreo pie crust, this decadent chocolate cream pie is rich, easy to make, and silky. It’s truly a chocolate lover’s dream come true. You can substitute the Oreo crust for a graham cracker crust instead!
Gingerbread Cinnamon Rolls
These overnight gingerbread cinnamon rolls are perfect for the make ahead breakfast for Christmas Eve or Christmas morning breakfast! These gingerbread rolls are a delightful twist to the classic cinnamon rolls recipe. It has the subtlest gingerbread flavor and is perfect for this holiday season.
Every Christmas Day I make cinnamon rolls for breakfast for me and the boys. It has become one of my favorite traditions for the last few years. And while I LOVE the smell of freshly baked cinnamon rolls Christmas morning, I GREATLY disliked waking up extremely early to prepare the dough, let the dough rise, and bake the dough. I’d rather spend my Christmas mornings enjoying watching the excited faces of my boys and the giddiness of their anxious little bodies as they play with their new gifts.
This cinnamon roll recipe takes the traditional cinnamon sugar cinnamon roll and couples it with gingerbread seasonings making it so unbelievably delicious. These warm gingerbread cinnamon rolls are topped with gooey cream cheese frosting!
