If I had it my way, pumpkin, apple, pecan, and all those warming, autumn-inspired treats would appear on the menu of bakeries and sweet shops all year long. But since that isn't happening anytime soon, I'll take what I can get for the next few months. That means caramel-laced pumpkin scones, pecan tarts with a spicy gingerbread crust, cranberry and apple cobblers topped with chantilly cream, and pumpkin custards. And that's just the beginning.
