The Best Cuban-Style Fall Desserts

Bourbon Caramel Apple Galette


Rustic, flaky, buttery crust filled with apple slices mixed with brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg then topped with bourbon caramel and chopped walnuts.

Baked Apple Empanadas


Baked apple empanadas are dessert empanadas made with a buttery brown sugar apple filling and drizzled with a spiced rum icing. It's basically apple pie on the go!

Flan de Calabaza (Easy Pumpkin Flan)


In the spirit of Fall, I’m giving creamy, custardy classic flan a pumpkin twist! All the flavors of pumpkin pie without the crust!

Espresso Dark Chocolate Pecan Pie Galette


Everything you love about pecan pie but WAY easier. This flaky buttery pecan pie galette has dark chocolate, strong espresso, raw honey, and chopped pecans.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies


Rich and chewy pumpkin chocolate chip cookies made with pumpkin puree, warm spices, and tons of chopped dark chocolate. The best cookie for Fall!

Guava Caramel Bread Pudding Recipe


A sweet, moist, cinnamon-spiced, and boozy bread pudding recipe drizzled with a homemade guava caramel sauce and candied maple pecans.

Mini Toasted Hazelnut Mocha Flans


Traditional flan gone modern using dark chocolate, strong espresso, and toasted hazelnuts.
