'Tis the season for all things pumpkin spice, from the ubiquitous lattes to breakfast cereal and ice cream. Personally, I'm a fan of the real deal: this is the time of year when I stock up on pumpkin puree and add it to breads, muffins, cookies, and even pasta sauce. Here are my favorite recipes when I want to eat pumpkin all day long.
My Pumpkin Bread uses Greek yogurt and less sugar for a better-for-you version of the classic recipe. A rich spice blend of cinnamon, cloves, allspice, and ginger help the pumpkin's subtle flavor shine.
For snack time:
Perfectly sized for snacking, these Mini Pumpkin Muffins are delightfully moist, with a nice balance of cinnamon, ginger, allspice, and nutmeg.
Pumpkin isn't just for baking. Gnocchi with Mushrooms and Pumpkin Sauce combines pumpkin puree, mushrooms, shallots, sage, and milk to make a thick sauce. Served over packaged gnocchi and garnished with shaved Parmesan, this is a sophisticated vegetarian dish simple enough for a weeknight dinner.
These Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies with Maple Glaze have a soft, cake-like texture, with a hint of wholesomeness thanks to the addition of rolled oats. The cookies are flavored with cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg and finished with a rich maple glaze.
