    My favorite pumpkin dessert is for pumpkin bars. The bars are so rich and creamy. Love the cream cheese glaze that goes on the top. Just heavenly.

    I love Nordicware!! This is a very cool giveaway! My favorite pumpkin dessert is a tie between homemade pumpkin pie…with a little whip cream on top sprinkled with some nutmeg…and homemade pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. But I will eat anything with pumpkin in it.

    Definitely pumpkin cheesecake…OMG I cant wait to have some!

    I love pumpkin bread the most of my pumpkin baking. I do make a crustless pumpkin pie which is great when I am trying not to eat too much fattening stuff.

    I LOVE pumpkin bars, baked on a cookie sheet, with cream cheese frosting. That is the beauty of autumn, and holidays. Cream cheese and pumpkin! 🙂

    My favorite pumpkin food: anything containing pumpkin! I made a soft pumpkin cookie this year that was out of this world. Made pies. Made muffins. Made bread. Will continue thru Christmas. Pumpkin RULES!!

    Cheryl says:

    Does a Pumpkin Pie Spiced Latte from Starbucks count? If not, I’ll go with regular pumpkin pie – can’t be beat!

    Mom24 says:

    I love pumpkin bars too, but I think my favorite is a pumpkin roll with toffee pieces scattered over the filling. Mmmmm.

    Hi! I would really love to win this contest. My birthday is Halloween and I’ve been thinking what fun it would be to make something pumpkin-shaped this year but I don’t have any pumpkin molds. My favorite pumpkin recipe is a Pumpkin bread. It’s so delicious that I will forgo my usual rich desserts for a slice of pumpkin bread. I also really love my pumpkin pie recipe. I think it’s the best of any pumpkin pie I’ve had – but I can’t take credit for that, the recipe is from the Baker’s Illustrated baking book 🙂 Keep up the good work – I love all the inventive recipes you come up with on your blog.

  15. 15

    Of course that would have to be pumpkin cheesecake! Yum!!!!

    Mini pumpkin cheesecake with caramel topping. Although, I just tried some pumpkin spaghetti from William Sonoma the other day and it’s a close second right now.

    Beckey says:

    I LOVE pumpkin chocolate chip cookies!!! Easiest recipe EVER! 1 box spice cake mix, 1 can pumpkin, 1 bag chocolate chips. Mix together cake mix and pumpkin, add chips. Drop about 1 Tbsp. on gresased sheet and bake about 10 mins. @350F. SO good! I wonder how good they would be if I baked them in that cute pumpkin patch pan!!! I hope I win! 🙂

    Oh! I just found this awesome cookie recipe on Joy the Baker — Pumpkin Butterscotch cookies. They’re yummy! My son and I made them and loved them. they’re more like muffin tops than cookies, but they’re oh so good.

  37. 37
    Kelly says:

    loves it! @ work I talk about pumpkin so much, I have been baned from saying pumpkin. My fav dessert is a double layer no-bake pumpkin cheesecake or maybe pumpkin chocolate cupcakes with pumpkin cream cheese frosting. And for a savory pumpkin dish, I like a pumpkin seed crusted chicken fingers! yum!!!

    I love, love, love pumpkin-praline pie…the creamy spiciness of the pie along with the crunchy sweetness of the praline topping…to die for!

    Stacee says:

    I love pumpkin and never get to eat it in my house. My husband hates it and I would just end up eating all of it. I would love to have a pumpkin pie with real whipping cream on it that my mom used to make at Thanks Giving. It is the best in the world and has great memories with it.

  41. 41
    Michelle says:

    I love these pans! I love anything pumpkin. I make pumpkin oat muffins that are delicious and a pumpkin bread with a low fat cream cheese ribbon in the middle. My favotite, though, is pumpkin bars with the cream cheese frosting. The best part is the pumpkin candies that we put on top! I love fall and pumpkin anything!!!

    Lane says:

    I love anything pumpkin and I’d love to make stuff with the pans and mix! I love pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. They are more like a bread consistency, but they are soooo tasty! I’ve already made two batches so far this season! 🙂

    Robin H says:

    I love anything pumpkin, but if I had to choose one I would say pumpkin roll. I would love to win these items!

    I’m a fun of pumpkin spice cookies with browned butter frosting. Yum!

  48. 48
    Jeanne says:

    My all time favorite pumpkin recipe is something my family calls “Pumpkin Stuff”. It is like a layer of soft pumpkin pie filling topped with a package of spice cake mixed butter and crumbled on top (adding walnuts is optional). It brings me back to my childhood every time I make it. I think I need to make it tonight…..
