We’re well into pumpkin season and I have a ton of pumpkin recipes on the site. There’s something for everyone!
Whether you are looking for scones, muffins, pies, or cakes there’s an abundant amount of recipes made with pumpkin that you can choose from. If you’re in the mood for breakfast, try my pumpkin pie pop tarts. Or if you need a sweet cookie, make my pumpkin oatmeal cookies then turn them into pumpkin oatmeal cream pie cookies sandwiched with gooey caramel.
Pumpkin season is short so make the most of it by making the best pumpkin recipes around!
Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes
Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes that taste just like pumpkin pie! The pumpkin cupcake is deliciously moist with hints of cinnamon, allspice, ginger, and vanilla. It’s topped with homemade whipped cream and pie crust cutouts. Serve these instead of pumpkin pie this Thanksgiving and your guests are sure to be impressed!
Pumpkin Oatmeal Cream Pies
These insanely decadent cream pie cookies are a wonderful treat for fall. A simple pumpkin oatmeal cookie is filled with homemade caramel and marshmallow cream for an ultra rich dessert experience. Plan ahead for these sandwich cookies, though. They take a while to prepare. The cookie dough needs to refrigerate for at least 2 hours before baking and the caramel sauce needs to be cooled completely before filling the cookies. You can make both of these components the day before you plan to serve the cookies.
Pumpkin S’mores Bars
These bars are like gooey s’mores sandwiched together with pumpkin pie in the middle. It’s a wonderful recipe with so much rich, decadent flavor. The bars are sweet and go great with a glass of milk. I used cinnamon, ginger, and cloves for spices in the pumpkin filling but you can the spices you prefer most in pumpkin pie. Bake the bars until they are no longer wiggly and keep them stored in the refrigerator.
Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies
These cookies are soft and chewy. One egg yolk is used as a binding and this small amount keeps the cookies from being cakey. There’s a ton of oats, making each cookie hearty and full of texture. Molasses and cinnamon offer warm fall flavors without overpowering the pumpkin flavor. Mix in a cup of your favorite dried fruit or chocolate chips to add variety to the recipe.
Pumpkin Whoopie Pies
Enjoy a soft pumpkin whoopie pie and quickly become hooked. The pumpkin cookie uses canned pumpkin, which results in a soft cakey texture. Brown sugar, molasses, and spices give the cookie a warm fall flavor. The filling is made with cream cheese and cinnamon, along with a few other ingredients, to complement the flavors in the cookie. These Pumpkin Whoopie Pies are amazing!
Pumpkin Coconut Halwa (Pumpkin Coconut Pudding)
Halwa is probably the most popular Indian dessert (along with kheer). The most common types of halwa are made using semolina and whole-wheat flour. This one is made using pumpkin, sugar, ghee and coconut. You may use coconut oil in place of ghee to make this vegan, but if you ask me, halwa without ghee is just not the same!
Dulce de Leche Pumpkin Bars
This recipe for Dulce de Leche Pumpkin Bars gives you the flavor of a pumpkin pie without the hassle of making a pie. A graham cracker crust is topped with a layer of dulce de leche cheesecake and a layer of pumpkin pie filling for an epic twist on the classic pumpkin pie. Each bar served with a dollop of sweetened whipped cream. Bring these to your next social gathering, everyone is going to love them.
