25 Pumpkin Recipes to Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth

Warning: Cravings will ensue.

It’s officially fall, and where I live, it’s finally starting to feel like it, too. This means two very important things. One: It’s officially baking season. Two: It’s officially pumpkin season. Each is exciting in its own right, but together, these occasions offer endless opportunity. And when I say endless, I. Do. Mean. Endless. Every time I attempt to find a pumpkin recipe, I’m utterly overwhelmed by the options (and all the PSL recipes). So today, I’ve organized 25 of my favorite pumpkin desserts into categories to help my fellow pumpkin-seekers find the perfect recipe. Choose the cheesy quote that resonates with you the most, and find 4-6 delicious recipes tailored to your taste.
