You can't go one more fall without trying these Pumpkin Spice Brownies with Pepper and Nutmeg . You will touch heaven for being tender and juicy! These cannelés are not only extremely cute to present at the table, since they incorporate one of the star ingredients of autumn, they are a safe bet for this season.

You can make them in a muffin pan, but the truth is that turning them into canelé with Le Creuset's nonstick canelé pan is a wise move.

Decorated and presented with some popcorn and some decorative pumpkins (fresh or ceramic...), it's an ideal recipe for this coming Halloween! It will be the starting point from which you will say "Ooooh! ª, and you will not stop preparing them.

  10. Take the rack to the oven and gratin the canelés at 240º C (high heat) between 5 and 8 minutes.
