Chef Ryan Scott is back in the TODAY kitchen to share two of his favorite fall recipes.

He whips up the ultimate autumn shepherd's pie and sweet vegan and gluten-free chocolate chip crunch cookies, which he calls "insane."

"I'm all about one-pot meals, and this one hits all the marks for a great fall comfort dinner: sage, gravy and butternut squash," says Scott.

"I have always been crazy for cookies, and eating vegan doesn't mean I can't still be crazy for cookies. If anything, it's made my passion for finding and creating the best vegan cookie recipe that much more important to me. These insanely delicious salty-sweet crunchy nuggets of chocolate chip heaven satisfy my inner cookie monster, vegan or not."
