Perfect Fall Pumpkin Recipes

September 8, 2014

Fall means pumpkin! We love making recipes with this yummy seasonal flavoring. We especially love that pumpkin is so healthy and full of fiber, even though it just tastes delicious in anything we add it to. Here are some fun pumpkin inspired recipes to get you started.

S'mores Pumpkin Roll

From Inside Brucrewlife

First of all, pumpkin. Then notice the chocolate and cream cheese filling? Yes, this is the pumpkin roll we have all been waiting for. What a creative way to serve this fall flavor. 

Canned pumpkin isn't the only way to get this tasty vegetable. You can find small pie pumpkins at the local farmers market. They are small and exceptionally heavy for their size. Turning them into pumpkin puree is a simple process. 

Cut your pie pumpkin in half and remove stem

Scoop out seeds

Place the two cleaned halves cut side down on a baking pan

Bake at 350 degrees until skin pierces easily with a fork

Allow pumpkin to cool enough to safely handle

Scoop out soft flesh and place in a mixing bowl. 

Blend on low until pumpkin is smooth and creamy

Freeze in your favorite freezer containers until needed.
