‘Tis the season for all things pumpkin! And I am HERE for it. The pumpkin season may be too short for some of us, which is why we need to make the most of it. We have no time for mediocre pumpkin recipes, so we are here to share ten of the very best tried and true pumpkin recipes to make right now.
Can you picture the madness of Walmart on Black Friday? Well, that is what our small overseas commissary is like the first day they unload cans of pumpkin puree. You run in, grab as many cans as you can carry and stockpile those babies. I can say with confidence that all these recipes are rationed-pumpkin-worthy.
Turkey Pumpkin Chili. Nothing says fall weather like chili, which makes it the perfect place to add some pumpkin. Pumpkin truly adds a nice layer of flavor to a fairly traditional chili recipe.
Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Bread. My mouth literally waters just reading the recipe for this bread at Averie Cooks. Moist pumpkin-y bread with a crunchy cinnamon topping? Yes, please.
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies. One of the only things that makes pumpkin better? Chocolate. These are a big hit with kids, too.
Pumpkin Sheet Cake. Great for fall entertaining, this delicious dessert will feed a crowd.
German Roasted Pumpkin Soup. Okay, I have to tell you something about this recipe: it’s real fancy. It uses REAL PUMPKIN. I know. And it is so worth it! The oven roasted flavor builds depth and makes it taste like the real thing served up at German fall fest.
Slow Cooker Pumpkin Butter. The only problem with this recipe is you can’t possibly eat it all by yourself. (Is that a challenge? Maybe.) I’m packing some of my extra in cute mason jars to give as gifts.
Pumpkin Peanut Soup. Think outside the pumpkin patch with this savory soup inspired by traditional African peanut soup.
Creamy Pumpkin Pasta. This is another recipe the kids are guaranteed to enjoy. Creamy pasta with fall flavors aplenty.
Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls. All the heart eyes for this gooey and sweet breakfast mess. I want them now. At like 2 in the afternoon.
Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte. No shame in my pumpkin-spice game. Go basic and DIY your PSL.
