Amazing things to make with Pumpkin!

Yum

Pumpkin is such a wonderful ingredient to work with in recipes.  The mild but distinct flavor makes it a fall favorite, since fall is traditionally pumpkin harvesting season!  Pumpkin is also an easy ingredient to purchase, being available all year in canned varieties.  My personal favorite of canned pumpkin is Libby's.  Libby's pumpkin is made from pumpkins in Illinois, a specific type of pumpkin, and has a slightly sweet yet pumpkiny goodness that I love.  It is also very consistent can to can, which I have found not to be true in other brands.

I am writing this in a separate paragraph for a reason:  DO NOT confuse CANNED PUMPKIN PIE MIX with canned pumpkin.  The pie mix is much more runny and has various spices and more sugar than what you might want in your recipe.

Pumpkin pie puree is fairly easy to make yourself if you are willing to spend a bit of time.  I learned how from the Pioneer Woman YEARS ago.  It is fairly easy and it is so delicious.  Use pie pumpkins. That's what they are for.

However you choose to get your puree, try some of these recipes to satisfy your pumpkin urges this fall.  You will be glad you did.
