Please share your favorite FALL recipes with me!

Title says it all...I'm looking for traditional favorites (apple butter, pumpkin bread, pecan pie)...and new things to add to the menu! Anything that uses a "fall" produce as a main ingredient is fair game! We eat a lot of apples, pumpkin, pecans, pears, butternut squash, and sweet potatoes. Bonus if you can freeze your item!

Okay ladies, lay 'em on me!

Re: Please share your favorite FALL recipes with me!

Cider Beef Stew
2 T. olive oil
3 T. butter
1 1/2 pounds stew meat
1 large onion, chopped
4 medium carrots, peeled and chopped
1 pound potatoes, peeled and chopped
6 tablespoons flour
2 cups apple cider
1 cup beef broth

Preheat oven to 425*. place a dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add oil and butter. Season beef with salt and pepper and add to the pot. Brown on all sides, about 7-8 mins total. Add onions, carrots, potatoes, and cook for about 5 mins. Add flour, stirring to combine and coat. Add the apple cider and the beef broth and stir to combine. Bring to a boil, cover and transfer to the oven for 50 mins.

Serve with pumpkin dinner rolls:

Pumpkin Dinner Rolls

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup warm water
2 cup warm milk
cup butter, softened or melted
2 cup mashed cooked pumpkin (I usually use one can of pumpkin.)
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup wheat germ (can omit and use flour instead)
10-12 cup all-purpose flour (I usually use a mixture of whole-wheat and white flours. I'd recommend going about 1/3 whole-wheat to 2/3 white flour.)
7 teaspoons dry yeast

In large mixing bowl, combine sugar, water, milk, butter, pumpkin, and salt. Mix well. Add wheat germ, 7-8 cups of the flour, and yeast. Mix, and then
continue adding flour and kneading until dough is elastic and not
sticky.

Place dough in greased bowl; grease top of dough, cover with a towel, and set in a warm place until doubled (about 1 hour). Punch dough down and divide into thirds. Divide each third into 16 pieces and shape into balls.

Place on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise until almost doubled, about 30 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-18 minutes, until tops are golden. Brush with melted butter as soon as they come out of the oven. (Note: These rolls usually look somewhat dry when first coming out of the oven. Wait about 15 minutes and they will look and taste beautifully. Don't ask me why, but that's how it always works for me!)

I love acorn squash in the fall. Slice in two. Clean out seeds. Put butter and brown sugar in middle. Bake at 350 for an hour.
