Feed Me Friday: Pumpkin Recipes

This post may contain affiliate links.

I super-love pumpkin recipes. Super. I know it isn't a major favorite of everyone out there--my dad doesn't think vegetables should be mixed with desserts, but I love them! And as against pumpkin dessert recipes as my dad is, he even concedes the ones I am sharing with you today are delicious. And you really need several ideas because if you open a big can of pumpkin, you will need several recipes to use it all up!

Pumpkin Cookies
This is the best pumpkin cookie recipe! I took these to my Sunday School class full of 16 year old boys and they were gushing over how good they were--this is significant because 16 year old boys usually just eat without commenting on flavor. It also makes a ton--I get 5-6 dozen out of this recipe. That is enough to take treats around to your neighbors!

Ingredients
  • 4 cups unsifted flour
  • 2 cups oats
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups butter, softened (I make these with 1 cup applesauce and 1/2 butter)
  • 2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 can (16 oz) pumpkin
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (but I just use the whole bag)
Steps
  1. Combine dry ingredients a mixing bowl
  2. Combine wet ingredients in a separate mixing bowl
  3. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients. Mix together. (When I make this, I just throw it all into my Bosche at once and let it mix it up).
  4. Drop onto greased cookie sheet.
  5. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.
Pumpkin Shake
For each shake, you need:
  • 1 scoop softened vanilla ice cream
  • 1 T canned pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • Dash of cinnamon
Mix ingredients together and then eat!

Pumpkin Latte
For each latte, you will need:
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 T vanilla
  • 1 T sugar
  • 1 T pumpkin
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch cloves
  • pinch nutmeg
  • tiny pinch ginger
Whisk ingredients together and heat in a saucepan.

Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream Sandwiches
This is my favorite pumpkin recipe. It is from Our Best Bites

Pasta With Pumpkin Alfredo
Pumpkin recipes don't have to be just desserts--it goes really well with pasta too! We enjoyed this recipe from Our Best Bites:

And by the way, the regular alfredo sauce recipe linked in that recipe is AMAZING.

Do you have a pumpkin recipe you love? Please share!
