Fall is the my favorite season to bake delicious desserts—they make my house feel nice and cozy as soon I pop them in the oven. There’s nothing better.
Most of the desserts in this roundup use canned pumpkin, and in my opinion, a necessity to have on hand in the fall.
If you only use half a can of pumpkin puree for a recipe you can use the rest to make dessert. How great is that?
I’ve included a variety of pumpkin desserts in this roundup:
Fall baking starts … now!
