Autumn has arrived! All you summer lovers, it’s time to embrace the leaves changing, the 65 degree, partly-sunny days and soak up what I believe is the best season of the entire year. The crisp morning air, the crunchy leaves under your feet, and a warm pumpkin spice Americano from Starbucks.
On top of all this goodness is pumpkin. I love pumpkin in all breakfast and baked goods. I try to avoid the pumpkin soup or ravioli dishes. I just can’t go there with my most favorite puree. It might ruin it for me.
Here is the grand list of pumpkin recipes I plan to try this year. Some I have already tested and as you’ll see, I have loved them all. Others are still in this neat list waiting to be whipped up into deliciousness.
Pumpkin Scones – I have made these. They are easy, delicious and won’t last until noon if you make them in the morning. Invite people over; it’s safer that way.
Gingerbread Pumpkin Overnight Oats — I make this almost every night for the next morning. I heat it up because I like my oatmeal warm. This is a great option for those who don’t do dairy or are eating a vegan diet. I use lactose-free milk in mine.
Low fat Pumpkin Spiced Chocolate Chip Cookies from Skinny Taste — Weight Watchers-friendly and I love her recipes.
Melt-in-Your-Mouth Pumpkin Cookies — They melt in your mouth because the recipes calls for 2 cups of butter!
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip cookies — I love these! I substitute butter for shortening.
Pull Apart Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Bread — Oh my! I can’t wait to try this.
Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls — These are amazing and I make the dough in my bread machine.
Pumpkin Pie Dip – This is on the line for me but I think it looks very tempting.
Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte — Can be made dairy free, if desired
How to Make Pumpkin Puree — I haven’t tried this yet, but I need to.
