11 Pumpkin Recipes for a Flavorful Fall

September 28th, 2015 by Desiree Smith

Pumpkin. Love it or hate it, it’s become the quintessential fall flavor and doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. I hate saying goodbye to the summer months, but as an avid pumpkin lover, the smell of pumpkin spice wafting through the cool fall air is always welcome. Here are 11 pumpkin recipes for my fellow pumpkin lovers to add to their collection.

1. Pumpkin Spice Latte Cupcakes

While this list isn’t really in any particular order, I had to make these Pumpkin Spice Latte Cupcakes the front runner because the popular coffee drink is mostly what started the pumpkin obsession. I love from-scratch cupcake recipes – they’re always so much more satisfying. You’ll find chopped Limited Edition Flavor Pumpkin Spice Candy Melts® candy mixed into this one, as well as in the Pumpkin Spice Buttercream.

3. Pumpkin Spice Tartlets

I got to sample these Pumpkin Spice Tartlets in the Test Kitchen last year and they were absolutely amazing! Once you have one, it will be hard to stop. They’re easy to eat in one bite and the Limited Edition Flavor Pumpkin Spice Candy Melts® candy blended with rich cream makes an irresistible filling in a flaky tartlet crust. The bite-sized dessert is perfect for any fall or party or get-together.

 7. Double Trouble Pumpkin Brownies

Another favorite recipe of mine, these Double Trouble Pumpkin Brownies take a walk on the wild side. This recipe was created as part of our partnership with Tito’s Handmade Vodka last October. Made with rich pumpkin and chocolate flavor, they’re filled with vodka-spiked, salty-but-sweet caramel sauce and topped with an airy pumpkin spice whipped mousse. I even made them myself last year! Serve with Tito’s Pumpkin Pie Martini, garnished with fresh-grated nutmeg.

    I have a question on the cupcake liners. I try to buy the cute ones but after baking you can not see what is on them. I did see a tip to put rice in the pan before putting in the liner. Is there any other suggestions?

    I lost the recipe that came with my Wilton Harvest Whoopie Pie non-stick 12 cavity pan. Could you please tell me where I could get another copy of that recipe? Thank you
