10 Must-Try Pumpkin Recipes for Fall

Ok well, I may have been trying to ignore the fact that Fall is coming, mostly because I know that it will mean my pool will get down to a hypothermic level in no time. But today is the first day of Fall, so there is no more denying it. Instead, I will embrace it by drooling over delicious pumpkin recipe photos. After all, in addition to the fun outdoor festivals and Halloween spookiness, making at least one pumpkin recipe is something I look forward to during the Fall.

I didn’t have to go any further than my Fall Pinterest board to find many pumpkin recipes that I want to try, including one that I made last year that will most certainly make an appearance this year (if not by me, than from someone else in the family). I narrowed it down to 10, but it sure was difficult! Which one (or more!) is on your must-try list?

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Roll – Of course I had to start with a pumpkin recipe I know is delicious! We made this last year for a Fall festival, but Brett’s aunt makes it every year. I’m looking forward to it! From Yours Truly = The Photographer’s Wife


Skinny Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino – It’s a shame I have yet to ring in the season with a Pumpkin Spice Latte, but perhaps this frappuccino recipe will fulfill my desire to both indulge in pumpkin spice goodness while holding on to what’s left of the summer warmth (Florida = still in the 90 degree range).

Pumpkin Cheesecake Crepes – Ignore the misspelling in the photo and think about how delicious these would be. I love the crepes in the France Pavilion at Epcot, so I’m sure these would be equally tasty. Source: Somewhat Simple

And while I was perusing through pumpkin recipes, I came across this index of over 100 pumpkin recipes from Something Swanky. It’s probably a little more than I can handle, but you are sure to find something there to please your taste buds. 😉
