  • You’ve probably seen pumpkin ales on store shelves this season. Cooking A La Mel used some of this seasonal brew to make a Pumpkin Ale Pumpkin Roll, putting a sophisticated twist on a classic fall dessert. The pumpkin cake is seasoned with cinnamon, ginger, cloves and nutmeg, along with pumpkin puree and a generous pour of pumpkin ale. After baking, it is rolled up with an ale-spiked cinnamon cream cheese frosting. Serve slices alongside chilled bottles of the ale that went into it.
  • Chocolate chip cookies might just be the most versatile cookies, since you can easily play around with the basic ingredients to customize them to suit your mood. F & B Department’s Brown Butter Mocha Chocolate Chunk Cookies are just one more example of how a few simple changes can transform a good recipe into a memorable one. Nutty browned butter gives these cookies a rich, deep flavor base on which the espresso and chocolate really come through. The cookies seem especially decadent and they’re not difficult to make, which means that you should definitely consider giving the recipe a try the next time you have a cookie craving.
  • Not everyone likes candy corn, but those of us who do, tend to really love it. If you are a candy corn fan, than Culinary Concoctions by Peabody’s Candy Corn Fudge should be on your must-try list this season. The fudge is made with candy corn-flavored chocolate bars and delivers plenty of candy corn flavor in every single bite. This fudge will probably sound over-the-top to most non-candy corn lovers and it is – but it is in the best way possible. Don’t skimp on the candy corn garnish, so people will know what they’re about to bite in to!
  • I’m going through Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Pie Spice Cookie Butter almost as fast as I can buy it. The seasonal spread is one of the most delicious applications of pumpkin pie spice that I’ve seen this season. In addition to baking with it, you can also turn it into a Pumpkin Pie Spice Cookie Butter Latte, as I did over on Brewed Daily. The coffee drink has plenty of pumpkin flavor, but it is a bit less sweet than most of the pumpkin spice lattes that you’ll taste this season. It’s a fun way to bring some decadence to your morning cup of java.
