Cozy Fall Cooking: Try These Pumpkin Recipes

It wouldn’t be fall without pumpkins—and those orange globes are for way more than just decoration. Try some creative pumpkin recipes this season, and you’ll become addicted to the rich, fabulous flavors.

Homemade Pumpkin Pie
Make from-scratch pumpkin pie with your own pumpkin purée—it’s easier than you think! Make it even better by creating a super-flaky crust with these tips for the perfect pie crust.

Pumpkin Butter
Have you tried homemade apple butter? YUM. Take that flavor and amp it up a bit by whipping up a batch of pumpkin butter. Start out with one of the best pumpkin varieties for cooking, and you can’t go wrong. With your pumpkin butter, you can make Pumpkin Butter Cake, Pumpkin Milkshakes, and Pumpkin Bread (recipes all included in the above link).

Flavor-Packed Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
Don’t toss those pumpkin seeds when you’re carving or cooking your pumpkins! Instead, spice up and roast your seeds for a simple snack. This link will take you to recipes for sweet, spicy and zingy pumpkin seeds.

Happy fall!
