A few of my favorite pumpkin recipes!

I LOVE anything pumpkin! I've probably already eaten my weight in pumpkin treats this fall. lol!
I thought I would share with you a few of my all-time favorite pumpkin recipes.
Of course, their is this Pumpkin Bread. I posted the recipe a while back.
So delicious!!!!

Have you ever had pumpkin dip? It is the BEST! I had it for the first time a couple of weeks ago when one of my sweet neighbors brought it to a get together. Trader Joe Ginger Snaps go with it perfectly!! I'm not kidding when I tell you that I ate so much of this dip I had no room for dinner!!!

Pumpkin Dip Recipe
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 (15 ounce) can solid pack pumpkin
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon frozen orange juice concentrate

In a medium bowl, blend cream cheese and confectioners' sugar until smooth. Gradually mix in the pumpkin. Stir in the cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, and orange juice until smooth and well blended. Chill until serving.

Another one of my all time favorite desserts is Pumpkin Crisp!
I like this better than regular pumpkin pie! It's so...........good!!
Riley and I made this dessert today!

  • 1 (18.25 ounce) package yellow cake mix
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 (29 ounce) can pumpkin puree
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2/3 cup evaporated milk
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Set aside 1 cup cake mix for the topping. Combine remaining cake mix, 1 egg, and melted butter or margarine. Pat into a 9x13 inch baking pan.
  2. In a large bowl, mix pumpkin, 2 eggs, spices, 1/2 cup sugar, and milk. Pour pumpkin mixture over the cake mix crust.
  3. In a small bowl, combine 1 cup cake mix and 3/4 cup sugar. Cut in 1/2 cup softened butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle mixture on top of pumpkin mixture.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 55 minutes.
And here are four of the yummiest PUMPKINS of all...
