Our Faves of Your #FoodNetworkFaves: First-of-Fall-Treats Edition

We don't typically play favorites, but these Instagram shots of fall-inspired treats led us to crown four #FoodNetworkFaves favorites this week.

No matter your Instagram following, your filtering prowess or your like-to-minute ratio, nothing truly proves #deliciousness like an old-fashioned, ready-set-go contest. Every other week, we’re coming your way in search of the greatest creations made in your very own kitchen. When we call out the theme on Instagram, put your cooking skills to the test by whipping up your go-to Food Network recipe, snapping a photo and tagging #FoodNetworkFaves for your chance to be featured on FN Dish!

Fall is officially here. So we asked you to share with us fall-inspired treats so good that we could wave goodbye to summer and never look back. And our #FoodNetworkFaves feed was overwhelmed with the best of the season, whether it was the first pumpkin pie (of many) to slide out of your oven or the first time you flecked your treats with warm, autumnal spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. Feast your eyes on the first treats of fall!

'Tis the season for pumpkin spice and everything nice.  @peachandthecobbler whipped up Pumpkin Toasted Marshmallow Cookies that we wouldn't mind eating all fall long. After creamy marshmallow is slathered atop soft pumpkin-packed cookies, they're broiled in the oven until deliciously toasted. While you're at it, add these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies to the list of non-pie pumpkin recipes you need to bake this season.

The rest of us can only hope that our first pumpkin pie of the year looks like this one from  @fearlessflyingkitchen. She baked an entirely homemade pumpkin pie, meaning she used fresh sugar pumpkins in lieu of canned pumpkin. Bake a From Scratch Pumpkin Pie at home with a fresh sugar pumpkin, an easy pie crust and all the spice you would expect out of the classic.

@bridierollins dreamed up a Chocolate Almond Pear and Grape Galette bursting with fresh fruit. A galette is a freeform pastry baked without the help of a pan; the finished product leaves the oven a little more rustic than its pie and tart counterparts, with the fruit center leaking and oozing with juice. Bake your own French galette, whether it's Food Network Magazine's Apple-Walnut Galette or  Apple-Pumpkin Galette.

Stately and elegant,  @devamadeo's Spiced Coconut and Ginger Cake deserves to be on that pedestal. It comes with coconut milk, coconut oil and grated ginger in the batter, plus a good drizzle of dulce de leche on top. Get your own fix of spicy ginger by baking this Ginger-Rum Bundt Cake.

Want in on the fun? Stay tuned for our next Instagram call-out. Happy cooking!
