Fall blew in hard this weekend, with a flutter of leaves and a gale of snow, in some places. Halloween is here too, that spooky night of mystery and play — are you throwing a party? Perhaps you're not in full party form, but you want a little treat or snack to see you through the night of the Great Pumpkin. Well, we have 15 simple treats for you today, hand-picked for autumn. They range from the sweet — peanut butter popcorn, pumpkin Rice Krispie treats! — to the salty, like Ina Garten's masterful roasted nut mix with rosemary, and homemade cheese crackers.
Fall flavors abound — sharp cheddar, gooey peanut butter, maple syrup, cinnamon and ginger. Welcome fall with open arms and a warm kitchen with one or more of these simple treats, from sweet to salty and chewy to crisp.
