There is nothing quite like the sweet, cinnamony aroma of an apple pie or pumpkin cake baking. It's warm and spicy and makes the whole house smell like home to me. These fall desserts capture that aroma perfectly. From apple pie with maple syrup to pumpkin coffee cake (the walnut streusel filling is terrific) to soft and chewy chocolate ginger cookies, these fall dessert recipes make a great finish to any meal.
