Having a pumpkin dessert on the table during the holidays is practically a requirement when you’re entertaining, but not everyone always wants the classic pumpkin pie. Get inspiration with these ideas to make scrumptious pumpkin desserts that are not pie!
Luckily, pumpkin is a versatile ingredient that’s perfect for showcasing in other types of sweet treats. In this collection of recipes, you’ll find delicious pumpkin desserts in the form of cakes, puddings, bars, ice cream, cupcakes, doughnuts, no-bake refrigerated treats, and more.
And you may be surprised at how good pumpkin actually is for you. It’s full of fiber and has lots of great nutrients. I think it’s really yummy too. We love to use our leftover porch pumpkins from our fall decor to make our own pumpkin puree and freeze it in one-cup servings to use in food throughout the year. It’s easy to do and tastes far better than the store-bought canned stuff. And of course, it’s amazing in pie too! This impossible crustless pumpkin pie is my favorite!
But back to the not-pie pumpkin desserts. The good news is, there are a lot of other dessert options out there that can give you the pumpkin flavor you love, just not in pumpkin pie form. Yup, easy pumpkin dessert recipes come in all forms, from cookies to cheesecake to bars to no-bake desserts! If you are looking for fall without the spice, check out our fall desserts that are NOT pumpkin spiced too. Now let’s get to the pumpkin stuff!
It can be both fun and challenging to get adventurous with your pumpkin pickings. And you can still throw in some classics if you’re wanting tradition. Trust us, we are as addicted to a pumpkin spice latte as the next person. But this time around, we’re also looking for ways to bring added flair to our pumpkin dishes.
