 I love pecans all year round, but I really do associate them with fall desserts. These crescent cookies are irresistible with the flavors of cardamom, cinnamon, and toasted pecans.

Cinnamon Bread

Alright, sure. This is technically bread, but I promise you'll be reaching for a slice as dessert. Warm cinnamon makes this sweet bread a perfect November treat.

Devil's Food Cake with Salted Caramel Frosting

Chocolate cake isn't the most traditional November dessert, but salted caramel is made for cooler months. It's rich, comforting, and a more than welcome addition to a Thanksgiving dessert table.
