3 Easy Recipes to Make Your Home Smell Like Fall

Fall is in the air, and that means it's time to start thinking about cozying up with some delicious comfort food. Here are three easy recipes that will make your home smell like fall in no time:

Apple Pie

This classic fall dessert is sure to please everyone at your table. The tartness of the apples is perfectly balanced by the sweetness of the cinnamon and sugar, and the flaky crust is simply irresistible. 

To make apple pie, you will need:

  • 1 (9-inch) pie crust, unbaked
  • 6 cups peeled, cored, and sliced apples
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

In a large bowl, combine apples, sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Pour into unbaked pie crust.

Place pie crust on a baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes.

Reduce oven heat to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

Bake for an additional 30-35 minutes, or until apples are tender and crust is golden brown.

Let cool completely before serving.

Butternut Squash Soup

This creamy and flavorful soup is perfect for a cold fall day. The butternut squash is roasted to bring out its sweetness, and the spices add a touch of warmth.

To make butternut squash soup, you will need:

  • 1 (3-pound) butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and cubed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

Place butternut squash cubes on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Roast for 20-25 minutes, or until tender.

In a large pot, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add onion, carrots, and celery and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.

Add cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and pepper and cook for 1 minute more.

Add roasted butternut squash, chicken broth, and heavy cream. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes, or until soup has thickened.

Puree soup with an immersion blender or in a blender until smooth.

Serve hot.

Pumpkin Bread

This moist and delicious bread is perfect for breakfast, snack, or dessert. The pumpkin puree gives it a rich flavor, and the spices add a touch of fall.

To make pumpkin bread, you will need:

    • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1 (15-ounce) can pumpkin puree
    • 2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x5-inch loaf pan.

In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla extract.

In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Add to wet ingredients and mix until just combined.

Pour batter into prepared loaf pan and bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
