Pumpkin Addiction

I have quite an addiction to pumpkin. :) My amazing friend, Rachel showed me this decadent recipe for Pumpkin Fluff, and that got me thinking. Now that October has hit, I am anxious to start making as much with this beautiful squash as possible. I loved this recipe for Easy-as-Cake-Muffins (with pumpkin) by Two Curlytops that i saw in the comments as well!

Do you have a favorite pumpkin recipe? I'd love to give it a try!



    1 prepared 8-inch (6oz) graham cracker pie crust
    4 oz. cream cheese, softened
    1 TBSP Carnation Evaporated Milk , chilled
    1 TBSP Granulated Sugar
    1 1/2 C. frozen whipped topping, thawed
    1 C. Carnation Evapored Milk, chilled
    1 pkgs. (3.4 oz each) vanilla & Pie filling mix
    1 can (15 oz) Libby's 100% Pure Pumpkin

  2. Pumpkin Fluff...I am so trying this. We love pumpkin over here. I love pumpkin pancakes (with mini-chocolate chips) especially. Thanks for sharing

  3. My friend has this one on her blog...

    it is for pumpkin spice cookies. Very tasty.

  4. last year I actually baked a pumpkin and made pies and such we even made pumpkin soup. this year I am trying a recipe for pumpkin cheese cake if it is good I will send you the recipe,

  5. yummmm!! thank you guys for these recipes! I can't wait to try them!

  6. I love pumpkin as well, in fact I can't get enough. My favorite new thing from last year was pumpkin butter. You have to try it, so good spread on fresh bread.

  7. The pumpkin chocolate chip muffins from the angry chicken's blog are the best - even sorta good for you too!

  8. Pumpkin cookies with butterscotch chips and craisins. YUM. They're more cake-y than cookie-y, which I love.

  9. Yes! I'll post my recipe on my blog later this month for Pumpkin Muffins (or bread), but I wanted to share this with you:

    When pumpkins go on sale the day after Halloween, I always buy 2 or 3 med-large ones. I cut them in half, gut them (and toast the seeds!), peel them, and roast them in the oven at 350 for 30 minutes, insides facing upwards. I pull them out, let them cool, and cut them up into cubes.

    Stick them in the freezer in a gallon bag and thaw them next time a recipe calls for "pumpkin puree." Puree the thawed cubes in a blender (or with an immersion blender) and you've got a healthy, no sugar added and no HFCS way of adding pumpkin to your favorite recipes.

  10. Oh my mom is obsessed with anything pumpkin! Thanks for all the recipes, but where's the one from Meadowlark for the Pumpkin cookies? She would love those!

  11. My signature baked good are these pumpkin cream cheese muffins:
    Hope you like them!

  12. Here's my very best muffin recipe - made with pumpkin of course.
