1. Fall Favorite Pumpkin Bread

“Without a doubt, fall is my absolute favorite season – college football, cooler weather, soup and stew for dinner, back to school, and pumpkin bread – all of these things make me so happy and provide such a feeling of warmth, security, friends and family. What better way to celebrate the meteorological start to fall that making Pumpkin Bread?” – Delightful E Made

2. Pumpkin Spice Bagel

“Fall is just around the corner and as lover of fall and baking I couldn’t resist the urge to get an early start. I came up with this simple Pumpkin Spice Bagel recipe. Bagels are an item we regularly make in our home and a breakfast staple. I have discovered that not only are they easy to make, they freeze wonderfully as well. Usually I make 3 or 4 batches at a time so we are stocked up for a while. I hope after reading this post you will be encouraged to give them a try yourself.” – Beauty Through Imperfection

5. Pumpkin Carrot Cake

“If you’re looking for a different pumpkin dessert to make this holiday season, I’ve got the recipe for you! This scrumptious Pumpkin Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting is a delicious twist on a one of my favorite desserts — carrot cake! This may not be one of my easy dessert recipes but it is definitely one of the best!” – It is a Keeper

6. Pumpkin Brie Topping, Dip, or Filling

“It’s frosting. It’s a dip. It’s a topping. It’s confused but it’s Pumpkin Brie Topping whatever else it may or may not be, and it is made from this easy pumpkin puree. I needed dessert in a hurry the other evening. Like, I forgot I had a party to go to in 2 hours, hadn’t had a shower yet, and signed up to take a dessert kind of hurry.” – Real: The Kitchen and Beyond

7. Pumpkin Lush

“Pumpkin Pie is the quintessential Thanksgiving dessert, however, I’ve got something even better…Pumpkin Lush! This is one of my favorite easy dessert recipes. It comes together in no time at all and is always a crowd pleaser!” – It is a Keeper

8. Pumpkin Butterscotch Bars

If you love the taste of pumpkin spice but don’t want to go through all the trouble of baking a pie, these one dish Pumpkin Butterscotch Bars recipe is just the thing! It is easily whipped up with ingredients you probably have on hand, and is a perfect easy dessert or snack for this time of year.” – Midwest Modern Momma

9. CopyCat Starbucks Pumpkin Scones Recipe

“Scones filled with yummy pumpkin flavors really have me excited for fall. Perfect with coffee for breakfast. Of course they are perfect with coffee for dessert. I suppose you could have them without coffee too! The spice glaze was so delish and the actual scone was one of the best I have had.” – Cincy Shopper

10. Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins

“I believe originally these were meant to be a knock-off of a Starbucks bakery item. I’ve never had the original so I have no basis for comparison, but it’s hard to imagine them being better than the homemade version. The streusel topping is not as chunky as some, and instead sort of melts during baking to create a crackly cinnamon-sugar topping that gives these an extra little something.” – Annies Eats

“Are you ready for some fall baking? Need a great recipe for those fall fundraisers, open houses, and bake sales? This is the post for you then, as I’ve teamed up with McCormick and some other awesome bloggers to bring you some amazing cookie and brownie recipes!

They’re perfect for fall and one of the easiest recipes I’ve ever heard–just 3 ingredients. The hardest part about it is finding the cinnamon chips that you’ll need for it!” – Mom Endeavors

13. Low Fat Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

“We love muffins especially now that my boys are responsible for taking snacks to school. Nothing better than sending along a batch of fresh homemade muffins for the class. Easy, compact and nutritious. These muffins are so moist and delicious you will end up making double batches to ensure you get one.” – Family Food and Travel

14. Mexican Sweet Pumpkin Dessert

“Super-easy, super-delicious: the Mexican recipe of “calabaza en tacha” is a sweet pumpkin dessert that kids will love.” – Kid World Citizen

15. Healthy Pumpkin Muffin Recipe

“If ever there was a reason to stock up on frozen or canned pumpkin in the fall, this would be it. Fill your pantry or freezer now, because you’ll want to make these long after pumpkin disappears from the store shelves! Pumpkin muffins in January, pumpkin muffins in July, pumpkin muffins in November–believe me, the date doesn’t matter.” – Nate and Rachael

18. Pumpkin Pie Pancake Recipe

“So around here, we love us some pumpkin. Last year we went a little crazy on pumpkin recipes, it’s true. And mostly because I (Jessica) start hoarding pumpkin the second it hits store shelves in the fall and obsessively bake with it all year long. I also have been known to buy enough pumpkin spice coffee creamer to last me the full nine months until next pumpkin season. At one point I had no less the 30 cans of pumpkin in my pantry, because God forbid I go without pumpkin during the summer months.” – Domestic Bliss Squared

“While searching for pumpkin cookie recipes I came across these Old Fashioned Soft Pumpkin Cookies by VeryBestBaking.com. They look so yummy, but I wanted to make it a toddler friendly recipe by replacing the eggs with bananas and the butter with coconut oil. Not only does this make the dough edible for little ones, who want to explore with their mouths, but it also makes the cookies healthier!” – Sow Sprout Play

22. Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

“Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies are my favorite dessert – and a fantastic use for pumpkin puree! When Mike and I first got married, our diet consisted of three staples: black beans and rice, pasta with red sauce, and pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. I used to bake a huge batch and freeze them – they thaw out beautifully, and are even better fresh out of the oven!” – Mama Smiles

23. Pumpkin Donut Recipe

“Fall is the season when you can find pumpkin everything. Muffins, pancakes, smoothies, and coffee drinks all get a pumpkin kick. I decided to give a pumpkin kick to donuts. When we make donuts at home, I prefer to bake them. It is a healthier and easier way to enjoy donuts. So this Pumpkin Donut Recipe is for baked donuts.” – Mess for Less
