    Williams-Sonoma has a yummy Pecan Pumpkin Butter that we stock up on every fall. It is the ingredient to so many delicious, mouth-watering recipes. One of my favorites is Pumpkin Bars, always a hit.

    My sister-in-law makes the most awesome pumpkin cupcakes…with cream cheese frosting! Can’t wait to see them (I mean her) on Thanksgiving!

    I love pumpkin everything, if I had to choose one it’d be a pumpkin roll, with pumpkin bars coming a close second – but aren’t those really the same thing, just different shapes??

    I make a pumpkin spice cake in a 9×13″ pan. I then use a
    1 1/2″ biscuit cutter and cut out individual cakes. I top off each adorable cake with a swirl of cream cheese frosting and garnish with a hand dipped chocolate whole toasted almond that is encrusted with either chocolate sprinkles or chopped toasted almonds. These faux acorns sit so proudly on to of these yummy cakes!

    Favorite pumpkin dessert? That’s a toughie. Everything? Maybe pumpkin chocolate chip bars. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm 🙂

    amy c says:

    hmmm, too many. pumpkin butter (like apple butter, but better), white chocolate pumpkin spice cake (divine!!), and pumpkin bread (with all it moist goodness). now i’m hungry!

    My favorite pumpkin dessert is a pumpkin trifle!

    It has pumpkin and whip topping and gingerbread chunks! Yum-O!

    The one thing I like best about this dessert is that it is easy enough for my kids to help make it. Thanksgiving is all about family. Most of the menu consists of items that are too complicated for small children to help with. But a trifle is something the kids can help with and can’t mess up! They help with everything: cutting up the cake, mixing the pumpkin and whip topping, layering the ingredients, and most importantly, EATING!!

    This recipe is a must for our family every year!

    My fav is a gooey butter cake that you add pumpkin to. It’s sinfully delicious and very bad for the Weight Watchers points!!! I can only make is once a year but it rocks!!!

  17. 67

    My favorite it pumpkin crunch & Pumpkin pie bars. Love those pumpkin pans so festive. I am already a followe.

    My favorite pumpkin dessert is pumpkin torte – graham wafer bottom, cream cheese-y layer, pumpkin-y layer, whipped cream top. Mmm.

    Amanda says:

    Unfortunately I have just discovered my love for pumpkin!!!Sad, I know! I’ve only made a handful of things but the easiest recipe I have tried is a box of spike cake mix and can of pure pumpkin. Delicious and so easy!

  44. 94

    Hmmm…that’s a hard one. Either pumpkin pie, or pumpkin muffins. But, then again, pumpkin cookies with mini chocolate chips are divine too! 😉
