Favorite Fall Baking?

looking to expand my repertoire... would like to know what you guys like to bake, and if you have any favorite recipes that you could share ( some people are weird about sharing recipes, lol). the weather is beginning to turn, though it'll never get really cold where we live, it just doesn't feel like fall without the oven going! me- love to bake bread, it is soooo therapeutic! i have dietary restrictions in the house, so i can't use boxed mixes... c'mon! i know you guys are holding out the really good ones. :)

  • sorry, too lazy to type out a big recipe. i do alot of apples and figs in old world cookie recipes from places like poland and russia.
    chunky apple cakes, homemade fig newtons, pumpkin puddings and caramel apple pie, five mile high apple pie, and so on.

    Answer by jewjewbee at 8:39 AM on Oct. 29, 2009

  • jewjewbee- i'm highly interested in the fig newtons (even if you are having a lazy day, lol)- i have tried several recipes, and not found one i really loved. but i REFUSE to buy them (unless we go to whole foods, and can get the good ones). the kids love figs! one of their favorite fruits!

    Bmat- the apple cake sounds great! have you ever used anything in place of some of the oil, or just stuck to the recipe? just curious.

    rkoloms- that sounds a lot like the apple crisp i make! lol except i don't use butter in the topping, i use any random nut butter i have around (we love almond or chshew!) and when the apples are a little tart, i throw in a few drops of stevia clear.

    thehairnazi- my dd LOVES gingerbread... and apples.... sounds like thats one she could do just about all the prep work for too! i'll have her read and copy that one for an after school project...

    thanks every one... here are a couple of OUR favorites!
