9 great pumpkin recipes

These pumpkin recipes taste especially nice accompanied by crisp autumn leaves underfoot, pink wind-whipped cheeks, and a nice glass of hot boozy cider

You spot a flash of orange out of the corner of your eye. There it is again! Either you really wanta Fanta, you're being followed by a rogue basketball team or... it's fall! You're finally allowed to buy the tiny, adorable day-glo-orange pumpkins from the grocery store and arrange them on your porch, you're finally allowed to carve grins and grimaces and reap the rewards, you're finally allowed to...

Make recipes with pumpkin! Yes, that was an order. We know, we know: These recipes use canned pumpkin and are therefore not specifically autumnal. And if you want to make some Salted Pumpkin Crème Brûlée in July, we salute you. Let your pumpkin flag fly.

But while they're technically for all year round, these pumpkin recipes taste especially nice accompanied by crisp autumn leaves underfoot, pink wind-whipped cheeks, and a nice glass of hot boozy cider. Oh, and family and loved ones and all that. Great pumpkins, we pay homage to your smile-inducing presence with these recipes.
