With Thanksgiving coming up this weekend, it’s time to embrace the fall flavours that we all know and love. Here are six great treats to enjoy throughout the month.

Brulee Pumpkin Praline

This decadent dessert is filled to the brim with sweet pumpkin custard and topped with caramelized nuts. Consider it a pumpkin pie’s sophisticated older cousin. (722 11 Ave. S.W., 403-261-3064)

Crave Gobble Gobble Cupcake

There’s nothing more perfect than a stroll in Kensington on a nice autumn afternoon. Well, maybe except indulging in this seasonal treat – a chocolate or vanilla cupcake decorated with a turkey. Crave has a whole menu of sweet Thanksgiving treats, including pumpkin spice cupcakes, pumpkin pie and bourbon pecan pie. (1107 Kensington Rd. N.W., 403-270-2728, cravecupcakes.ca, @craveYYC)

Fiasco Gelato Indian Chai Gelato

The nice weather is supposed to return by the end of the week so plan to enjoy a couple scoops of this chai-spiced gelato on a sunny fall day. (food truck, 403-452-3150, fiascogelato.ca, @fiascogelato)

Log Barn 1912 Pumpkin Pie

Originally started in Armstrong, B.C. this little “barn” has expanded to locations in Calgary and Kelowna and is known for its massive butter crust pies. What better way to end a dinner in October than with a thick slice of pumpkin pie? (1510 16 Ave. N.W., 403-457-5229)

Sidewalk Citizen Bakery Pumpkin Maple Butter Cream Cookies

Only available at their home base bakery on Fridays and Saturdays, biting into one of these cookies will be well worth the trip. Might as well grab some pumpkin brown sugar scones to go, too. (2-5524 1A St. S.W., 403-547-2245, sidewalkcitizenbakery.com, @avivfried)

WildeGrainz Artisan Bakery Sweet Potato Bread

This freshly baked, dense loaf can go savoury or sweet. Toast, butter and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar or use for dipping in a hearty fall soup. (1218 9 Ave. S.W., 403-767-9006)
