As with many, Fall is my favorite time of the year, and I think pumpkin desserts and recipes play a big role in my love for the season. It’s strange how we only celebrate this amazing fruit during the Autumn season. If I had my say, I’d be spreading pumpkin butter, drinking pumpkin lattes, and eating pumpkin bread 12 months out of the year. I’m always on the hunt for easy pumpkin recipes, and here are a few that I’m dying to make. You might also like these Unique Apple Dessert Recipes.
