Do you have a favorite pumpkin recipe?  I’d love to try more recipes if you’re willing to share!


  1. Looks so yummie Wendy!!! I think I need to try this at well....will it work with fresh pumpkin as well?? We do not have canned here.

  2. Drool!!!!
    I can't find canned pumpkin here in Croatia...when I ask..I get strange looks! ;)

  3. These look very tasty! I hoard my canned pumpkin, hard to get it in New Zealand but I have bookmarked this to give it a try. I've made this pumpkin cream pie recipe from The Pioneer Woman today and am waiting for it to cool and settle before cutting into it:
