Day 31: Pumpkin Roll

I saved this recipe for the last day of 31 Days of Pumpkin. I feel like this is a classic pumpkin recipe and rightfully so because it’s simply delicious! And for this recipe I would go no further than Libby’s.

Thank you to everyone who followed my 31 Days of Pumpkin! I know I didn’t get to make all of the recipes along with my posting but I think I did a pretty good job. If anything I hope you can use the 31 days as a pumpkin recipe resource as I know I will in the future!

Day 30: Pumpkin Oreo Cheesecake

Three things I absolutely love in one beautiful combination: Oreos, Pumpkin and cheesecake! I’m gonna make these by the end of the week!

Day 29: Pumpkin Cupcakes

I know I posted chocolate pumpkin cupcakes in the past but these looked too good not to share. So I’m putting this recipe here for safe keeping and I must try it soon!

Day 28: Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Cookies


Hershey kisses now have pumpkin spice kisses. They’re good but I couldn’t eat too many of them at once. This candies are kind of more spice than pumpkin so this recipe of putting them in a simple chocolate cookies made total sense! Not only are the plain cookies themselves great but the candy inside makes them even better.

Day 27: Pumpkin Waffles

This waffle recipe from Family Circle magazine was shared with me a few weeks ago. While I haven’t tried it yet I’ve heard some great reviews.


Day 26: Pumpkin Snickerdoodles

More times than not I’m not a fan of Snickerdoodles, they don’t have chocolate. But I gotta say, I’m a fan of these cookies. I sat down next to them and before I knew it I ate two cookies. So if you like Snickerdoodles this is a great cookie for you! And if you’re not usually a fan, try them out.



Day 25: Pumpkin Cookie Cake

I’m getting more and more in the Halloween spirit as the holiday approaches. I really do love Halloween but don’t generally do anything on the actual day. But if anything I can celebrate by making fun Halloween looking food! I saw this recipe online and couldn’t resist, plus it has pumpkin as a main ingredient. I brought this cake to work tonight and it was a hit, definitely a little messy though.


Day 24: Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

I almost forgot to post today, yikes! My friend Kaitlyn had given me three of her favorite pumpkin recipes so here is the third installment. The previous two were Pumpkin Cheesecakes and Pumpkin Squares.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins


1.5 cups of all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 cup sugar
1 cup pumpkin puree (canned or homemade works – I’ve used both)
3/4 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 – 2/3 cup mini chocolate chips


In a large bowl add the sugar, pumpkin, oil, eggs and vanilla. Beat well to combine. In a smaller bowl stir the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and pumpkin spice. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir just until moistened. Mix in chocolate chips. Spoon into greased muffin tins, filling 2/3 full. Bake at 350 for 18-20 minutes. Yields 1 dozen.

Day 23: Pumpkin Cookies with Brown Butter Icing

My friends Rachel and Leslie allowed me to post this recipe with rave reviews of how good these cookies are. Rachel told me that Leslie made them and brought them to work a couple of years ago and everyone loved them. Leslie added that this recipe makes A LOT of cookies and they are best served using a hallow pumpkin as a bowl. Thank you to both Rachel and Leslie for this recipe and the lovely “artistic” picture by Rachel! I can’t wait to make these!

Day 22: Pumpkin Crunch

This was a totally spur of the moment baked good today. I didn’t have any intentions of baking today and especially with a mid-term tomorrow I thought I would post something someone else made. But I  saw this recipe posted on Facebook and I couldn’t resist. The recipe looked so simple and I had all of the ingredients so why not? The result was delicious, kind of like a pumpkin pie in a pan with a yummy crunchy topping.

I think when I first looked at this recipe I questioned whether it would work or not, just spreading the cake mix and butter on top made me skeptical. But boy did it work!!
