The fall season is here, which means you now have the opportunity to make delicious meals that are particularly desirable this time of year. As a part of a delicious fall meal, there are certain desserts that work well. So the time is here to bring out your pumpkin, cinnamon and apple ingredients and make a delicious dessert the whole family will enjoy.

Easy homemade fall desserts to consider

Whether you are looking for a delicious fall dessert for Thanksgiving or simply like to spoil the family with a delicious late-night dessert, there are certain options that look and taste like the fall season. The following are three delicious fall season desserts to consider trying before winter arrives. 

Homemade pumpkin pie
There is perhaps no dessert that says fall season is upon us more than a fresh homemade pumpkin pie. To make the homemade pumpkin pie, you will need pie crust, pumpkin with evaporated milk, eggs, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and salt. Combine the ingredients together either manually or with an electric mixer, and then pour the mixture into the pie crust. You then bake for approximately forty minutes, let it cool and you are ready to enjoy a delicious homemade pumpkin pie. Ideally, it is best to cook on 400 degrees Fahrenheit and check the pie frequently to ensure you do not bake it for too long. 

Cinnamon apple crisp
Cinnamon apple crisp is a very fall-like dessert that tastes delicious, particularly when it is served with ice cream. To make the apple cinnamon crisp, you will need sliced apples, white sugar, flour and ground cinnamon. You then mix the right portions of each ingredient into a baking pan. The next step is to combine oats, flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and melted butter together and crumble over the apple mixture. Then simply bake for approximately forty minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit, and you are ready to enjoy - just do not forget the ice cream! 

Gooey caramel apples
Homemade pumpkin pie and cinnamon apple crisp are more difficult to make, and if you want something simple, easy and quick, then gooey caramel apples are a delicious alternative to choose. All you need to make gooey caramel apples are an arrangement of your favorite brand of apples and a caramel coating or individually wrapped caramel candies. You will also need to remove the apple stem and place a craft stick to serve as a handle. Then you simply place the caramel safely into the microwave to soften and warm the caramel, allow it to cool and then roll each apple thoroughly in the caramel. Let it sit for a while, and they are ready to serve in under an hour. 

The bottom line
If you enjoy baking, then fresh pumpkin pie(or apple pie) and cinnamon apple crisp served with ice cream are great options. For those who enjoy easy to make homemade fall desserts, try the delicious, yet simple gooey caramel apples that require very little preparation.
