When I think of fall desserts, I think of pie. I don’t know why. I guess I equate fall desserts to Thanksgiving, and we always have pies at Thanksgiving.
Whatever the reason, I make a lot of pies during November. It just puts me in the mood for all the deliciousness that comes with a Thanksgiving Day feast.
Some of the pies I love to make in the fall are apple, coconut, chocolate cream, blueberry (I know, not exactly a fall fruit but I usually have blueberries in the freezer), fudge, and…well, if it’s a pie, I like to make it.
I also enjoy cranberry sauce recipes in the fall.
This year, I decided to marry my favorite fall pie….apple…with some cranberries. Sound good?
I thought so, too!
I also thought I’d step it up a notch and make my crust from scratch. I used to make this crust a lot before I had kids and stuff, but it’s been a LONG TIME since I made a pie crust from scratch. Sour cream dough has always been one of my favorites. It tastes so yummy, and it’s usually a lot easier to work with than just a normal flour crust.
So, today I made you a delicious Cranberry Apple Pie with a sour cream crust and crumb topping.
Y’all are probably thinking I need some sort of Best Baker award or something.
What kind of desserts do you enjoy in the fall?
