    Basically just little fried pillows of dough, beignets may look tricky, but trust us: this recipe—which calls for few ingredients and doesn’t require kneading—is one that any cook can master. Be warned, however: the dough is supposed to be quite sticky (it’s moisture that helps the fritters rise up nice and airy), so make sure to generously flour your work surface and your rolling pin.

    Filled with warm spices and swirled with chocolate, this moist zucchini bread is perfect for holiday baking. Use mini loaf pans, and then wrap 'em up and gift them to friends—they'll be happy to nibble at something a bit lighter than the Yule log.

    We're not surprised banana bread tops this year's list—after all, it can be eaten for breakfast or dessert. This lightened-up version, which swaps applesauce for oil, is deliciously guilt-free.

    While we love a classic cobbler, we're partial to this crisp, which you can make with winter fruits such as pears or apples. Serve with vanilla ice cream for a crowd-pleasing dessert.

    Rice Krispie treats are quick to prepare and easy to transport, which is likely what makes them such a hit at the bake sale. Adding peanut butter and chocolate makes them party-ready.

    This go-to dessert will never go out of style. Keep it simple with this classic recipe, or switch it up by tossing in toasted almonds. You'll surely fall in love with the nutty addition.

    Marshmallow crème is a bit stiff and can be tricky to swirl evenly into ice cream. But don’t worry. Thin ribbons become soft and creamy, whereas bigger chunks turn into chewy marshmallow pockets—and both are lovely and add dimension to the luscious pumpkin spice ice cream.

    No chalky chocolate chunks here! Combining melted chocolate with oil keeps it soft and pliable even after the ice cream has frozen. Nilla wafers make the perfect substitute for sponge cake as they soften in the ice cream over time.

    Pecans wrapped in caramelized sugar add a wonderful crunch to this boozy brown sugar ice cream. The recipe makes about 1½ cups of the pecan praline, but it’s so tasty you might want to double it. Extra praline make a great addition to your favorite cookies.

    When you take your first bite of this candy-shaped creation, layers of vanilla butter cake, almond buttercream, and silky caramel await. Heaps of homemade fudge envelop the cake, and the whole thing is sprinkled with crushed-up Kit-Kats. Top the cake with candles for a Halloween glow, then use as a centerpiece before it's devoured.

    If you prefer savory to sweet, this cake’s for you—a floral blend of herbs infuses the drippy chocolate glaze. The glimmering amber praline adds a dark, eerie element, and gives the almond-flour base some texture. The glamorous presentation makes it perfect for parties—just make sure to save a slice for yourself!

    Instead of letting leftover candy sit and get stale (or gobbling it all up yourself), throw the tempting treats into a soft and chewy cookie cake. For an extra-sweet touch, pipe the edges with chocolate frosting, then garnish with Whoppers for a whimsical presentation.

    Sometimes good things come in small packages—as in the case of these irresistible, rum- and ginger-scented peach pies. Simply swap out your usual pie plate for a muffin tin, and you'll be left with adorable mini-pies that should end any arguments over who gets the biggest slice.

    Adapted from a recipe in a vintage New England community cookbook, this delicate, sweet-tart pie is a modern update on a classic form. During baking, the fruit and custard fillings separate to form three layers: spiced apricots, lemon pudding, and a delicate, spongy top. In other words: heaven.

    Warm spices and caramel-sweet brown sugar are a perfect marriage for juicy pears and tender, ripe figs in this stunning pie. A rustic fold-over crust not only looks lovely—it's also a technique that's simple enough for even non-crafty bakers to get right.

    Who says strawberries need rhubarb? Piles of plump, juicy, whole berries are the star of this simple, homespun pie. The one modern twist: a sprinkling of freshly ground black pepper, which gives the fruit filling a subtle, spicy kick.

    Packed with sweet late-summer plums and inky blackberries, this gorgeous pie has an appealing tartness that's tempered with just the right amount of vanilla and sugar, plus a truly show-stopping ruby color. While any type of top crust will work here, a traditional lattice looks particularly dramatic against the dark fruit.
