Make a pumpkin dessert or season your pumpkin seeds before roasting them. Here are some of my favorite pumpkin recipes, including cakes, a flan, bread pudding, brownies, and more.
Whether you're planning a Thanksgiving dinner or want to make something to celebrate the fall season, any one or more of these recipes would be an excellent choice.

The sweetened cream cheese filling in the center of these pumpkin muffins makes them extra-special.
Brown sugar and vanilla combine with cinnamon to flavor this wonderful rice pudding. Use Arborio or short-grain rice in this recipe, and garnish with a sprinkling of cinnamon and brown sugar or chopped dried cranberries and pecans. This is a great recipe to use up that extra 3/4 cup of pumpkin in a can.
