Fall Comfort Foods
By: Avery Ducar and Lena Forbes
We decided to try out some recipes to share with our classmates here at Wheaton North. In the spirit of the upcoming Thanksgiving, we decided to try some fall-themed desserts.
Dutch Oven Apple Cobbler
4 out of 5 Stars
This dutch oven apple cobbler was amazing topped with a scoop of ice cream. I rated it a four out of five stars because I didn't have a dutch oven, so boiled water in a pot and put another metal pot over it. I didn't have a thermometer either, so I just cooked it at a medium-low temperature. If you have plenty of time to spare, I would definitely recommend making this scrumptious dessert.
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies
4.5 out of 5 Stars
These pumpkin chocolate chip cookies were delicious! The only part of the recipe that I found a little confusing was dissolving the baking soda in milk before mixing it with the other ingredients. This step is supposed to make the cookies a bit more fluffy, and I think it definitely worked. My only critique was the lack of pumpkin flavor. These cookies are perfect fall treats to make with the extra time you are spending inside as the weather gets chillier!
Caramel Apple Pie Cream Horns
5 out of 5 Stars
As you can see below, these caramel apple cream horns turned out to be perfect! This dessert was slightly trickier to pull off because I had to wrap puff pastry around cones to achieve that cornucopia shape, but it was absolutely worth it. In the end, I decided to top the horns with caramel syrup instead of making a caramel topping on my own. It didn't take too long to make, and it was delicious. I would recommend warming up the filling first, then putting the horn on top of the cream.
We hope you enjoy these cozy fall desserts!
