It’s pumpkin season. In my experience, there are two distinct camps – people who love pumpkin everything and people who hate it. Personally, I love pumpkin, especially pumpkin baked goods. With family gatherings and holiday get togethers coming up, I’ve been searching Pinterest to find new pumpkin dessert recipes to dazzle people with. In my research, I’ve discovered almost any dessert can be pumpkin-ified. Here’s what I’m considering adding (or remaking!) to my fall baking list.

1. Pumpkin Dream Cake

I made this two years ago for Thanksgiving. It was incredible! Highly recommended. The pumpkin flavor was there, but not overpowering, so may be good for those who aren’t pro-pumpkin. And who can say no to cream cheese frosting?

2. Bourbon Pumpkin Pie with Salted Brown-Butter Pecan Streusel

So, I’ve made this one too. Last year, for Thanksgiving. I think it may be my go to pumpkin pie. The splash of bourbon is an unexpected touch and the streusel on top makes it special.

3. Pumpkin Cannoli

Adding pumpkin to this traditional dessert is a fun twist! Plus cannoli filling is so easy to make. If you don’t want to fill the cannoli shells you could also make this as a dessert dip for a more casual gathering.

4. Magic Pumpkin Cobbler

Until I came across this recipe, I hadn’t heard of pumpkin cobbler. The first thing that comes to mind is peach cobbler, followed by berry cobblers. But, I need to try this. Because putting ice cream on cobbler is encouraged and the word magic is in the title.

What are some of your go to pumpkin desserts?
