If you are getting a little tired of pumpkin pie, there are plenty of other pumpkin desserts to choose from for the fall baking season. I never really get tired of pumpkin pie myself, but I do love to have some options and this week’s roundup will give you plenty of inspiration.
- Baked by An Introvert‘s Pumpkin Oatmeal Cream Pies offer up a handy way to get your pumpkin fix. These sandwich cookies are made with pumpkin oatmeal cookies, which deliver a wonderfully spicy flavor, and are filled with caramel and marshmallow cream. The cookies keep well and are a good choice for snacking while you bake up the rest of your fall goodies.
- The Pumpkin Madeleines from Food Nouveau are an elegant way to get a pumpkin fix. The cake-like tea cookies are made with pumpkin puree and flavored with a combination of warm spices and maple sugar. Maple sugar is a fun ingredient to work with because it can be used just like regular sugar, but brings in a strong maple flavor. The combination of maple and pumpkin is always a winner in my book.
- If you’re looking for something a little different, Pumpkin n’ Spice‘s Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Cobbler might be right up your alley. The cobbler has a creamy pumpkin base that is very similar to the filling of a pumpkin pie. It is baked in a casserole dish and topped with cinnamon-kissed snickerdoodle cookie dough, which creates a buttery cookie crust over the filling. The cobbler is meant to be served warm, so don’t forget to pick up a pint or so of vanilla ice cream to serve it with.
