One of my favourite things about autumn is pumpkin! From pumpkin pie to lattes, you can make so many things with this one ingredient. My most popular board on Pinterest is my pumpkin board, so I thought I would make a post with my families favourite pumpkin recipes.
Now, you won’t be finding any pumpkin with chocolate recipes here, one thing I do not like is the combination of chocolate and pumpkin! I have tried different recipes thinking maybe I might like it that time around, and nope. No such thing. I just don’t think chocolate and pumpkin go well together! I may pin recipes at times but that’s not for my benefit. I figure since others like it I will pin, but I try to avoid it when I can haha! How about you? Do you like the combination? Or are you like me and prefer pumpkin without chocolate, and why?
For me I feel like the chocolate over powers the pumpkin and at times makes it taste bitter. So enjoy these chocolate free pumpkin recipes, and let me know which you tried and how you liked it!
Oh and I do think I have posted about this in one of my posts, but since this is a all pumpkin post I must share this with you! Those huge Jack-O-Lantern pumpkins that you see at the store are not really meant for baking with.
They are edible, all pumpkins are, but they just don’t taste as good as the smaller pumpkins, the ones that are meant for baking. The seeds however, are larger and better for roasting than the smaller pumpkin pie pumpkins.
Just thought I’d share that tip with you!
First up is our absolute favourite pie, pumpkin pie! Friends of mine who do not like anything pumpkin even love this pie! I think the combination of fresh and canned pumpkin is the secret to this delicious pie. You must try this for yourself and let me know what you think.
This pumpkin version of halva is a such a wonderful fall dessert, I like to make when I have extra pumpkin on hand.
I have only made these cookies once as we don’t have pumpkin spice chips in Canada, but boy were they good! I hope to get my hands on some again the next time I am State side. This is the only recipe that doesn’t actually have any pumpkin in it, but I included it as it has pumpkin flavour and spice and I like this picture haha!
