28 Pumpkin Recipes We Absolutely Love
Pumpkin pie variations
Mommy's Pumpkin Pie: "This recipe is adapted from my mother's classic pumpkin pie," says Linda Hundt, owner of Sweetielicious Bakery Cafe in DeWitt, Michigan. "I added cream to make it a bit richer and orange zest for flavor." The result is a dark, mahogany pumpkin pie with ginger-cinnamon-clove spiciness (bottom pie in photo).
Pumpkin Cream Cheese Pie: Cream cheese strudel inspired Peter Sterk, owner of Just Pies in Westerville, Ohio, to build a pumpkin pie with a surprise cream cheese layer (top pie in photo). For the creamiest pumpkin pie, don't overbake.
Upper Crust Caramel-Pecan Pumpkin Crumb Pie: Customers at the Upper Crust Pie Shop in Watertown, Wisconsin, anticipate a slice of this fall favorite with crumb topping (not pictured). Owners Donna and Sue Kurschner and staff take orders for as many as 800 pies each Thanksgiving.
