No other flavor makes us think of fall more than the warm, golden, gently-spiced goodness of pumpkin. There are dozens of pumpkin recipes that will please any kind of cook, whether a beginner or a pro, from simple pumpkin cookies to classic maple-scented pumpkin pie, or a batch of playful and surprising pumpkin whoopie pies. If you feel like going all out this year, try serving your holiday treats a la mode, with a scoop of homemade pumpkin pie ice cream. More of a savory person than a sweet? Pumpkin isn’t only good for dessert! It shines as a main course in a buttery pappardelle with pumpkins and caramelized onions and a creamy pumpkin soup makes a quick weeknight dinner seem luxe. And don’t forget to use every last bit! Save and roast the pumpkin seeds when you’re done with carving, and you’ll have a speedy, healthy snack to munch on all season.
