Pumpkin Cream Horns Recipe

Nancy Piran | The Bitter Side of Sweet

Pumpkin cream horns are a simple dessert that’s perfect for the season! You’ll love the light and fluffy filling.

Over the summer I made these Strawberry Shortcake Horns and during that time I had already had in mind wanting to do something that would coincide with the fall season. Pumpkin was just something I naturally needed to try next.

Pumpkin is such a fun ingredient to use and it is so taboo to use it any other time of the year even though you can find it in grocery stores all year long.

A little secret of mine, I keep a can of it in my pantry, always. Probably a weird thing to do but I love the idea of fall and it gives me something to look forward to! Ha!

Let's talk about puff pastry a second. So I typically only ever use one brand of puff pastry but last week I discovered a Trader Joe's near my new house. You guys, I think I did a little happy dance in the store. Funny thing is that my hubby got crazier than I did while we were in there! He was pulling all kinds of things off the shelves!!

Well I knew Trader Joe's had their own brand of puff pastry and I had hoped to try it out one day. And now I am obsessed. It cost a little cheaper than what I was used to having to spend. Also it comes in a roll which I kind of love because there are no creases in my dough. Lastly it is a lot thinner than the pastry that I am used to using which I think makes it easier to cut.

So now it’s your turn to give me suggestions on what I should stuff my cream horns with next time! I have ideas but I want to hear yours! In the meantime if you are craving more pumpkin check out this maple pumpkin monkey bread or this chocolate chip pumpkin roll! Both equally amazing! Happy baking!
