5 Pumpkin Treats That Are Sure To Please

In kitchens across the nation, when October rolls around, the pumpkin baking begins. I keep cans of pumpkin in my cabinet all year and bake with it whenever I feel up to it, but I do have to admit, I feel up to it a lot more frequently in the fall!

Pumpkin, Cranberry, and Pecan Pie – this pie combines all of my favorite fall flavors into one amazing pie. I made this recipe multiple times last fall and plan to make it again this year as well.

Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake BrowniesCara is a pumpkin goddess in my mind. She developed a recipe for a these and I tweaked it a bit. They’re insanely delicious even if you wouldn’t think pumpkin and chocolate go together.

Pumpkin Praline Cake – Any cake that is made with caramely deliciousness on the bottom then flipped over is going to be amazing. This cake is no exception to that rule.

Thanksgiving Two-Fer Bars – I made Dorie Greenspan’s pie into a bar. You should too.

Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls – When I decided to make these, I consulted with Bridget about how to make pumpkin cinnamon rolls. Then she posted this Pumpkin Yeast Bread, which I made into cinnamon rolls. It’s a great way to enjoy pumpkin for breakfast!

    Unfortunately I didn’t enjoy these. It had all my favourite flavours, so I thought they would be delicious but I had a feeling whilst making they were going to be too sweet, and they were.

    Also the base definitely needs increasing as half the mix barely covers the bottom of the tin and with two wet elements it needs to be sturdier. Whilst the side pieces all stayed together the middle ones were just a gooey mess.

    But still didn’t detract from the biggest issue – far too sweet. (And I have plenty a sweet tooth!)

    Lovely blog though! (Sorry, hate leaving negative feedback! I just wouldn’t want someone else to have the same issues. Also, tinned pumpkin is quite pricey in the UK so wouldn’t want others to waste money on a recipe that doesn’t work)

    I’m going to try these. I think Brits don’t generally eat things as sweet as we do and I read the recipe and it doesn’t seem as if it has too much sugar, but I am going to double the crust recipe because it does seem as if it is a bit scant, plus I’m going to make a double batch. Tell me, do these have to be stored in the fridge? I see the note to put in fridge to set. Are they too soft at room temp? If so, do you think not adding the milk to the dulce de leche would take care of that? I’m bringing them to an event and there will be no refrigeration available.
