Along with loving candy corn, one of my favorite things about fall is pumpkin.
I’ll eat pumpkin anything — pie, bread, bars, ice cream, pancakes, frozen yogurt, anything.
My coworker Nicole made a delicious “crunchy pumpkin pie” over the weekend, and she brought some in that I got to sample yesterday and it was reeeeeally good. She now has the recipe on her site here.
I also have really fond memories of an amazing pumpkin bread that former coworker from the Register, Kris, used to make in mini loaf pans and carry around to about 50 people on the floor. AMAZING. We used to look forward to it every year. It was wrapped in plastic wrap to keep in all the gooey goodness, and tasted like it was made with several sticks of butter, and she used to sheepishly warn us that it was fairly calorie-laden, but we really didn’t care. Truly AMAZING.
Me, I’m not much of a baker. But Nathan and I (he loves pumpkin as much as I do!! Yay! One child does!) always make it a tradition to go to Golden Spoon around this time every year to get pumpkin-flavored frozen yogurt with the graham cracker topping.
(I think I need to plan our visit soon!)
How about you? Do you have any excellent recipes for pumpkin anything? (Something even a non-baker like me can make?) : ) Or any restaurants you recommend that have a delicious pumpkin something?
