Quiz: What Fall Treat Should You Bake?

I’ve never been much of a baker, but once fall hits, I want to bake! Baking creates a sensory experience that makes me feel so cozy. It fills me with nostalgia even though I’m not the greatest baker. I like baking things that don’t require too many steps (like cooling … sugar cookies, ugh) and are easy to make. I encourage you to make a sweet treat and share it with loved ones! Have a movie night, maybe make one of the soups in last year’s soup quiz, and enjoy a homemade dessert. It’s also fun to bake with someone! The results include links to recipes for the treats!

  1. perfect quiz timing! i went to my local farmers’ market yesterday and came away with more produce than i can reasonably eat, so i was already on the hunt for some recipes.

    white chai snickerdoodles sound intriguing and the description is spot-on

    • I would also like it to be a great recipe for iced cinnamon rolls and i would love to make it with our own family and it could be a great dessert to have all by ourselves too.

  2. Is it possible to get a list of all the recipe links? I’m excited to make the Brown Butter Spiced Rice Krispies Treats, but so many of the other options also sound delicious! <3

  3. White chocolate chai snickerdoodles

    Not sure that I can make the cookie gluten-free but the description is spot on!

    “Chances are you love nature and enjoy a good fall hike. You notice the little things, like the clouds reflected in a puddle of water, the leaves changing color — you might even go out of your way to step on a crunchy leaf. You might be more of a tea person than a coffee person. These white chocolate chai snickerdoodles are easy to make and will make your home smell so good!”

    And thanks to reading the recipe I now know that the difference between a snicker doodle and a sugar cookie is cream of tartar. Who knew? Not I.
