We’re in the seasonal transition zone. The air is teetering from warm to crisp, we’re just starting to add layers before stepping outside, and right on queue, all the familiar autumn cravings are flooding right back.

So, we’ve put together a roundup of stunning recipes that incorporate the season’s staple ingredient, from salted caramel and whiskey apple pie to cranberry cider smash. Bon appetit — here are the swooniest ways to keep the doctor away!
