As much as we love the rustic color palette of fall with brown and orange trees lining the sidewalk and sipping pumpkin spice latte in a cozy coffee shop, it’s time to bid farewell to this season and prepare for winter; because like one George RR Martin said, “Winter is coming.”
Since it’s a bittersweet goodbye, let’s take one last week to celebrate the taste of fall with a few comfort food items that will bid a proper farewell to this season.
Take a look at what some of these comfort food items are.
Rustic apple galette
The rustic galette is a delicious treat made from soft yet crisp pastry dough that comes together with a warm filling of sweet and tangy apples.
All you need to make this dish at home is flour, sugar, salt, unsalted butter, apples, and ice-cold vodka. The vodka is mixed with the flour to make the crust flaky. Start by mixing salt, flour, and butter in a food compressor to make the pastry and chop the apples in small pieces. Drizzle honey over the apples after you place them on the pastry dough, ready to be placed in the oven.
Serve hot with a side of vanilla ice-cream and wait as your mouth transcends into a sweet dream.
Candied sweet potatoes
This one’s a classic fall side dish made from yams or sweet potatoes and glazed over with a sauce made from butter, orange juice, brown sugar, and cinnamon. The rich and sweet tastes brought about by the combination of spices are what make this the perfect dish to bid goodbye to fall with.
To make this dish, you need a few pounds of sweet potatoes that are peeled and cut into small chunks, butter, brown sugar, ginger, cinnamon, and orange juice. You can serve the dish hot as a side to a savory dish to complement the flavors of the candied sweet potatoes.
Pumpkin pie martini
Fall isn’t complete without a pumpkin dish or drink, and that’s why one of the best ways to bid farewell to fall is with a boozy pumpkin drink that’ll make you truly cherish the flavors of this season.
A pumpkin pie martini is a cool and creamy dessert that incorporates the flavors of pumpkin, vanilla, cream, and pumpkin spice. To make this, all you need is vodka, canned pumpkin puree, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and pumpkin pie spice.
So, take out your martini shaker, throw in these ingredients and serve the chilled drink after topping it with pumpkin pie spice and whipped spice.
