Sweet & Savory Pumpkin Recipes For Fall

Fall is all about pumpkin-flavored everything, but are you feeling tired of the same artificial flavor and craving some real pumpkin? You can use pumpkin in almost any way imaginable for a delicious new recipe- in a pie, cake, drinks, soups, or even in a dip!

Classic Pumpkin Pie

When you’re craving pumpkin, the first thing your mind probably drifts to is a nice big slice of pumpkin pie. This classic dessert uses only seven ingredients, and couldn’t be any easier to make. The ingredients include two large eggs, one can of pumpkin puree, granulated sugar, light brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice, sea salt, and one can of evaporated milk. Once your pie is baked, top it with fresh whipped cream for the perfect fall dessert.

Pumpkin Tiramisu Layer Cake

Just the name alone is enough reason for you to try this cake, and probably has already got your mouth watering!  If you are interested in some of the main ingredients, the cake includes pumpkin pie filling and grated orange peel, while the filling includes mascarpone, vanilla beans, amaretto liqueur and crushed Amaretti cookies.

Bourbon Pumpkin Pie Milkshake

If you’re in the mood for an alcoholic drink but want a little twist, try this fun Bourbon Pumpkin Pie milkshake! The recipe calls for mixing all of the following ingredients: vanilla ice cream, milk, cream or half-and-half, vanilla extract, pureed pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, graham-cracker crumbs, and of course, bourbon. Then, rim the glasses with a light coating of frosting and dip into sprinkles, pour the milkshake into a glass and sprinkle cinnamon on top. Top with whipped cream if you’d like, and enjoy!

Bisque of Curried Pumpkin, Crawfish, and Corn

As the weather starts to cool down, it’s the perfect time to make your first soup of the season. This delicious soup includes Louisiana crawfish tails, fresh corn kernels, and one can of unsweetened pumpkin. The recipe is perfect for Thanksgiving or any other holiday season parties.

Pumpkin Pie Dip

Gingersnap cookies are a staple fall dessert, and they pair perfectly with this unexpected and flavorful pumpkin pie dip. The delicious dip includes cream cheese, sugar, pure pumpkin puree, cinnamon, nutmeg and ground cloves. Chill for at least an hour, or even better, overnight. To top off the dip, add pomegranate seeds right before serving to add a pop of color and flavor.
