Thanksgiving is next week and for me, it’s pumpkin’s last hurrah. At Christmas time I tend to lean towards pecan pie and the like. Maybe it’s because I love pumpkin so much and tend to eat lots of it during the Fall that by the time Thanksgiving rolls around I’m ready to savor my last pumpkin bite for the season. But before we bid adieu to pumpkin, let’s take a quick look back at some of my favorite pumpkin recipes…
First we have this tasty and easy, no bake Pumpkin Trifle recipe. This dessert has all the flavors of pumpkin pie but is ready in mere minutes! The secret is using store bought pumpkin muffins and 5 minute pudding mix.
If you want a hint of pumpkin and need an almost instant dessert then you are going to love this Pumpkin-Caramel Ice Cream Sauce recipe. I served mine on a pumpkin waffle for a tasty twist on a waffle cone!
I have to admit, this recipe for White Chocolate Pumpkin Praline Bars may or may not still make an appearance after Thanksgiving… it’s that good to me.
If you want to start your day out with a little pumpkin deliciousness then take this Pumpkin French Toast out for a spin! The crunchy yet chewy deliciousness of these are a yummy way to start any day!
It seems Pinterest loves this oldie-but-goodie Pumpkin Layer Cake recipe of mine because I get visits every day due to this delicious dessert. This cake is even better the next day so make it the day before if possible!
Want a little something salty to snack on while you’re watching the Thanksgiving Day Parade or “big game”? Then try this Toasted Pumpkin Seed recipe. Best of all you can just pick up a pack of raw pumpkin seeds from the store and skip the whole messy pumpkin carving and start snacking in under 15 minutes!
With all these pumpkin recipes I couldn’t leave out a pie recipe! These Mini Ginger Pumpkin Pies have a pleasant zippy flavor thanks to ginger and cloves. A decidedly modern take on an old classic.
I hope you find a little inspiration as we enter the final days of menu planning leading up to “the big event”… Thank you for sharing my pumpkin obsession today!
