Salted Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars

Hello Fall! The ultimate Autumn dessert — graham cracker crust, creamy pumpkin cheesecake flavors topped with salted caramel : )

One of my absolute favorite Fall desserts! Creamy, luscious and the first bite is the best. If you like pumpkin pie or cheesecake, this Fall dessert is perfect!!

Helpful tip: allow cheesecake to sit at room temperature for 1 hr, you’ll get that perfect creamy delicious texture. Happy 1st day of Fall 🧡🍂

Homemade Apple Pie

Fall baking goals : ) A classic – Spiced apples with cinnamon, nutmeg & brown sugar! The sweet aroma filled my home 🍏

A warm slice of pie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream is the best! What is your favorite pie?

A few years ago, I baked a salted caramel apple pie — it tasted amazing however, definitely lacking in presentation. I googled videos, watched & learned. Self taught & still learning ☺️ If you’re a beginner Baker, please don’t feel discouraged! Read the instructions prior to starting, prepare/clean your work space, have the ingredients, recipe, baking tools & mixing bowls set out.

I hope you have an awesome day, stay safe & thank you for following 🙂 🧡🥧 #hereforthepie #fallishere

Homemade Salted Caramel

Simply scrumptious! Sure store bought brands are good but homemade caramel 💃 is so much better : )

Have you made caramel before? I felt intimidated the first time making caramel. This is an easy recipe that doesn’t require a thermometer : ) A few helpful tips: use a long wooden spoon or heat resistant spatula to stir – the sugar forms into rock salt-like clumps, as you continue stirring it becomes a thicker amber color liquid – slowly & carefully add the butter & cream, it quickly bubbles up.

Once September comes around, I’m ready for everything Fall! Salted caramel pairs beautifully with pies, ice cream, cheesecake, apples & more : ) I hope you enjoyed the long holiday weekend. Have an awesome day & stay safe 🧡😃🍂

Recipe by Sally’s Baking Addiction


  • 1 cup (200g) granulated sugar
  • 6 Tablespoons (90g) salted butter, room temperature cut up into 6 pieces
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon salt

S’mores Cookies

S’mores summer smiles : ) A warm chocolate chip cookie with melted marshmallow-y gooeyness & crumbled graham cracker flavor.

This is my first time making S’mores cookies — doubting a cookie combination would resemble that amazing outdoor treat we all know & love. It was pretty darn close!

Craving s’mores without a campfire? 🔥 It’s a fun, super scrumptious mash up. Have an awesome day & weekend 😘💛 #smoresplease #summertreat
