Like the whole rest of the world, I am in love with fall. Everything about it. The weather, colored leaves, apple orchards, pumpkin patches, Halloween, cozy fires, hay rides, sweaters, boots, my baby snuggled in blankets on stroller rides.
And the food. There is nothing better than pumpkin desserts, is there? And yes I will go ahead and admit that I am one of the millions obsessed with the pumpkin spice latte.
Over the years I have made a lot of pumpkin recipes. I thought I’d do a round-up because these recipes are way too good to be buried in the recipe index.
I mean…check out those pumpkin donuts. Need I say more?
Who doesn’t love a muffin that is basically a cupcake that you can eat for breakfast?
My mom’s awesome pumpkin bars. They are so delicious and moist and since you bake them in a baking sheet you end up with like 100 bars. So you can share with friends. But only if you want to.
I made my own pumpkin spice lattes once with homemade pureed pumpkin. That was a bit of a commitment but damn it made a delicious latte. I paired it with a pumpkin turnover (really easy, check out the recipe, trust me!)
My sister-in-law, Nikki made these pumpkin whoopie pies and adorable flags years ago for a family gathering. I’ve made them before as well and brought them to work for a pot luck. Big hit.
These cookies are really awesome for little ones. Juliet absolutely loves them. I make big batches and freeze them and she likes to eat them for breakfast and snacks. They aren’t super sweet but toddlers shouldn’t eat a ton of sugar anyway. These are naturally sweetened with pure maple syrup.
Do you love fall, too? Do you have any fall-inspired recipes to share? I started a fall Pinterest board filled with pumpkin and apple recipes plus decor ideas perfect for a fall dinner party, check it out.
