Treats for a cozy autumn

I love to cook and I love to bake but I am not always so excited about hunting down a recipe and making a mess in the kitchen. For some reason, autumn brings back my want to do so. My mom, an avid baker but autumn hater, said today, "I don't like fall, but I love that it's cozy and the house smells like fresh-baked bread." and she is absolutely right. The house is warm and cozy. The treats are tasty. The options are endless. Nothing brings vibrance back to a cloudy, rainy, fifty-degree day like a pumpkin loaf, a movie, and a mulled wine. I put together five of my favorite autumnal treats to get you excited for a cozy autumn.

I'm actually obsessed with these Fantastic Mr. Fox-inspired Nutmeg Ginger Apple Snaps (pictured above). I cannot get over how easy and yummy and autumnal they are. You can make your experience better by getting your apple from a local orchard. They are usually fresher, crispier, and smaller.

Last year, I found this Creamy Butternut Squash Gnocchi. I love sausage, but I've also used chopped bacon. This recipe is super cozy and the gnocchi is a fun swap for meat. I also love homemade bread paired with this dish! This is a go-to in the warmer months.

An easier, but just as cozy option are these Bourbon Molasses Cookies. They are gorgeous, easy to make, and absolutely delicious. They are so festive, with cinnamon, ginger, and allspice. These are also great Christmas season cookies!

These Apple Crumb Cookies are a new find that I have only made once but had to share with you. They are basically flat apple pies and I just adore the chewy cookie base and the the crumbly apple topping.

Something you should know about me is that I love Panera. I cannot help it. I love the Autumn Squash soup and have been looking for a copycat recipe for years that does it justice. I finally found it! This Copycat Panera Autumn Squash Soup recipe is so familiar, warm, and easy. Top it with pumpkin seeds and grab a side of bread and you basically ate at Panera.

If you make any of these recipes or if you have some staple autumn recipes of your own you'd like to share, comment below!

I hope you're having the coziest of autumns!
