When that first chilly gust of wind hits your neck sometime in late September and makes you reach for a sweater, do you know what time it is? “Fall,” you say. Yes, fall. But more importantly … it’s the beginning of baking season!
While not an official day on the calendar, it might as well be. Summers have their berry pies and fresh fruit muffins, but fall is baking’s dream date. Give me your falling leaves and chilly evenings, it says, and I will give you every way to bake an apple, pear tarts and pear cakes, decadent chocolate cakes, cheesecakes, pumpkin pies and pecan pies, oatmeal muffins, and Brookies. (Because they’re wonderful year-round).
