20 Fall Treats That Aren't Pumpkin

I LOVE pumpkin, but last year I hit a wall. I simply had too many pumpkin cookies, pumpkin smoothies, pumpkin gum and pumpkin rice krispie treats. I crossed a line and this year I'm going to diversify my fall treats. This year I'm branching out of pumpkin into lots of apple, pear, peach and caramel.

Here are my most favorite recipes for autumn...that don't include any pumpkin spice:

1.Pear Crumble

Fall Treats-Pear Crumble

You will love how easy this comes together and how cute it looks served in mini-mason jars! It's perfect topped with your favorite caramel sauce!

2.Peach Cobbler

Fall Treats-Peach Cobbler

This is hands-down the best peach cobbler recipe I've ever had. We love to dutch oven and this is the perfect treat for your end-of-summer, early fall camp out. The good news is, even if you're not into dutch oven, you can easily make this in your oven at home. Just cook at 350 F for 35-45 minutes.

If you've never heard of spudnuts, it's time you did. Spudnuts are an Idaho favorite. They are delicious donuts made with mashed potatoes in the dough (no, you can't taste the potatoes). The potatoes add a layer of richness you never thought possible, similar to they yumminess of potato rolls, and are a favorite fall treat around our house.

4.S'mores Mix

Smores Mix

This 5 ingredient S'mores Mix will quickly become a favorite at your house, and is so easy to make! S'mores always remind me of fall camping and this mix is great to take hiking, camping, or on a lovely autumn drive to look at leaves.

5.Spice Cake

Fall Treats-Spice Cake

This beautiful spice cake with cream cheese frosting is a classic fall indulgence and could work for any number of autumn holidays-birthdays, halloween parties or thanksgiving!

6.Baked Apples

Fall Treats-Baked Apples

Baked Apples are so easy and so delicious-this recipe takes the easiness a step further and bakes them in a crock pot! Can you imagine how wonderful your house will smell??!

7.Bacon Wrapped Cinnamon Rolls

Fall Treats-Bacon Wrapped Cinnamon Rolls

Anything Cinnamon is my favorite during fall, and these bacon wrapped cinnamon rolls are the perfect decadent fall breakfast treat!

8.Apple Pie

Fall Treats-Apple Pie

This homemade apple pie recipe is amazing because you cook the filling BEFORE putting it in the crust, meaning your pie is out of the oven faster and to your mouth even faster. You will love it.

9.Carrot Cake

Fall Treats-Carrot Cake

This carrot cake recipe has been a party favorite every time I make it. It is now often requested by friends for their birthday cake. It's perfect for fall because carrots are so reminiscent of harvest and the cinnamon spicy goodness just tastes like autumn!

10.Apple Crisp

I'm really into butter and caramel as soon as the weather gets even a little chilly. These salted caramel butter bars do the trick nicely!

The word "custard" always intimidated me when it came to baking-it just sounded difficult to make. This recipe is not only easy-but the end result looks impressive. It's your choice whether you tell your friends it's actually easy to make custard!

16.Leaf Rice Krispie Treats

Rice Krispie Treats are truly the most diverse treat when it comes to the holidays. They're easy, everyone loves them, and you can do anything with them! Check out this recipe for making autumn leaves!
