15 Perfect Pumpkin Recipes

If you follow My Baking Addiction on a regular basis, you know that I am a sucker for pumpkin desserts. Pumpkin recipes have always been incredibly nostalgic for me because they take me right back to the fall months in my Nana’s kitchen. Whether I was perched up on stool rolling up her delicious pumpkin rolls or filling pumpkin pies – pumpkin will forever be one of my absolute favorite dessert ingredients.

Once October rolls around – okay, more like early September – I whip up a huge batch of homemade pumpkin pie spice to last me the entire season. Once I’m armed with a mega size jar of my favorite spice blend, I’m all about the pumpkin and creating new recipes to share with my family and readers.

Today I’m sharing some of my favorite pumpkin recipes from My Baking Addiction and around the web. They’re sure to help you plan your Thanksgiving dessert menu, and maybe a few special days in between. These desserts would do equally as well at the company holiday potluck or your Aunt Jan’s wreath making party.

From classic recipes like Pumpkin Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting to adorable Mini Pumpkin Pies and Pumpkin Cheesecakes with Salted Caramel Sauce, I’m confidant you’ll find a recipe that’s perfect for Thanksgiving, or just a pumpkin dessert craving on a Friday night.
