Fall Flavors: Beyond Pumpkin Spice

This fall, delight your customers with new flavors that go beyond the oh-so-familiar pumpkin spice trend.

Citrus & Spice – Fall spices exist beyond nutmeg and cinnamon. This year, try accenting baked goods and roasted fall squashes with subtle hints of citrus and herb combinations like lemon sage, orange cardamom or grapefruit thyme. Check out this Butternut Squash & Goat Cheese Turnover recipe from Neighborhood to Nation Recipe Contest winner, Carrie Hudson. As a pastry chef, Carrie sought a savory, portable option to sell at the farmer’s markets – and found it in this thyme-seasoned butternut squash wrapped in a buttery Pillsbury's Best™ Puff Pastry.

Honey – Wholesome, nurturing and sweet, honey is nature’s perfect sweetener. Explore local, artisan varieties that will bring new flavor to your baked goods. Try a fall-inspired carrot cake using Pillsbury™ Bakers' Plus™ Carrot Cake Mix with honey-infused cream cheese dressing.

Hazelnut – Harvested in late summer to early fall, hazelnuts lend a mild, meaty profile that can be enjoyed toasted or raw. Crush them up to top cookies or other baked goods, or make a from-scratch hazelnut butter to serve aside fresh baked bread. Get inspired by this Bittersweet Chocolate Hazelnut Tartlets recipe.

Toasted Coconut – Bring out the nutty, fall flavor of coconut by toasting it. Use it for a deep coconut flavor in scones and cookies, or a sweet and crunchy topping on cakes and cupcakes like these Coconut Cream Cupcakes.

Surprise and delight diners this fall with these new takes on fall classics. Whether you’re serving orange cardamom Bundt cakes made with Pillsbury Crème Cake Bases & Mixes or simply drizzling honey on a savory scone, customers will appreciate your forward-thinking fall flavors.
