Fall dessert recipes with a coffee twist
Some of the best parts of fall are the recipes that you wait for all year long to break out. Why do we wait until fall to pull these recipes out? Well, I am not sure if there is an actual, legitimate reason behind it, but we do. Maybe that's how your grandparents or parents always did it, maybe you have more time to bake in the fall, or you hate to turn the oven on over the hot summer months. Whatever the reason, I think we should start petitioning to enjoy fall foods all year round.

No matter the reasons that some of the best desserts find their ways onto our counters this time of year, there is undoubtedly one way to make them even better: COFFEE. For the coffee lover in your life (you) be sure to try the recipes below for some of the best desserts made better with an infusion of coffee.
Pumpkin Spice Desserts
To ease into this, let us ask ourselves what the obvious star of the fall flavors bonanza is. That would be — you know it — pumpkin spice. It's not just for coffee flavoring or pumpkin pie. Here are two recipes that will satisfy even the biggest pumpkin spice latte fan.
Pumpkin pie coffee cake: Here is a wonderful recipe that will merge all your favorites together in one mouthwatering bite. Now, the best part is that you can just make whatever coffee cake you normally make, but add in some pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie seasoning, and espresso to make it all you could want and more. So. Much. More. Check out the full recipe here (photo pictured above).
