5. Molasses, Ginger, and Cardamom Spice Cookies

Toasty and gently spiced with a unique molasses flavor, these cookies epitomize all fall baking should be. With the addition of fresh ginger and a heavy dose of cardamom, they have a little more depth than the traditional spice cookie.

Chai Spice Caramel Pie

6. Chai Spice Caramel Pie

This luxurious pie offers a medley of spicy, salty, sharp, and sweet. Our crisp Gingersnap Crumb Crust is the perfect cradle for the light, velvety caramel filling topped with billowy, torched meringue.

7. Cast-Iron Sweet Potato Cardamom Bread

Mandy Dixon, head pastry chef at Winterlake Lodge, located just north of Anchorage, Alaska, shares her recipe for a comforting and soul-warming cast-iron sweet potato bread. The sweet potato provides a natural sweetness, but the bread itself isn’t too sweet or cloying. That is particularly good if there is some tartness or acid added, so consider adding in chopped fruit or citrus to the mix.

8. Palmiers with Vanilla Bean, Pecan, and Cardamom

Palmiers might just be the perfect cookie: crisp, buttery layers of puff pastry encased in caramelized sugar. It’s hard to improve on something so classically perfect, but we think our version with cardamom, pecans, and vanilla bean comes pretty close.
