I was researching a pumpkin bar recipe the other day, and one thing led to another. I found pounds of great pumpkin recipes on some excellent blogs to share.
Each of the blogs has a bunch of great recipes beyond these listed, so take some time and explore while you’re there. Kudos to my fellow food writers!
Pumpkin Shortbread Bars
Let’s start with those pumpkin bars – the Chocolate and Pumpkin Shortbread Bars. They’re from picky-palate.com – a blog that’s got a super group of how-to photos with each recipe. Love this site for family-style home cooking recipes. She has just posted a Baked Pumpkin Ice Cream Glazed Donut recipe I’m going to try, too.
Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls
No-Knead Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls come from a really fun blog called patentandthepantry.com. I spent an hour noodling around this site – some funny stories here, as well as poignant ones. The photo of her on her home page is terrific.
I have to share one more from her: the Pumpkin Cream Pie. A light alternative to the heavy custard type and perfect for Thanksgiving.
Pumpkin chocolate chip bread
Everybody’s got a pumpkin bread recipe, but this adds chocolate and is lighter than the dense breads. It’s from the young husband and wife cooking team at twopeasandtheirpod.com – soon to be three peas. Solid family recipes here and many for parties.
Check out the pumpkin cheesecake – now a staple on tables all over at Thanksgiving – at the very educational joyofbaking.com. Lessons in baking abound here. Check it out!
Pumpkin Bread Pudding
Finally, on my own site, you’ll find this recipe for Victoria Malmer’s Pumpkin Bread Pudding – made with Dunkin’ Donuts offerings. You can use what you want, however (pumpkin bread from above) and it will probably be smashing!
If that’s not quite good enough, try the Amish Pumpkin Whoopie Pies I’m making soon.
