15 of Our Very Best Pumpkin Recipes

Cyd Converse

As much as I love summer, I get incredibly excited for fall as soon as pumpkin spice latte season is upon us each year. I love the change of seasons!

What some people may consider "basic" I consider downright exciting whether it be visiting the pumpkin patch or buying that pumpkin coffee.

One of my favorite recipes from when I first started baking is a chocolate chip pumpkin muffin recipe that I've made for years with rave reviews every time.

If you, like me, are stocking up on the pumpkins and pumpkin puree, these are some of our very best pumpkin recipes perfect for fall and all year long.

1. Creamy Pumpkin Pasta Sauce Recipe

Sweet but not *too* sweet, pumpkin pasta sauce is a favorite in our home because it mixes up a classic comfort food without being too crazy.

This flavorful, creamy pumpkin sauce is mild, has a great texture, and tastes incredible with spaghetti squash and a sprinkle of cheese.

2. Pumpkin Cheesecake Brownies Recipe

These pumpkin cheesecake brownies make the perfect fall treat, and I will neither confirm nor deny if I have already made a few batches this year.
