Sweets Caroline Russock 1 comment

An almond and cinnamon scented dough is spread with pumpkin filling, rolled, chilled, sliced and baked into lovely little swirls that are all warm with cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice i.e. pumpkin pie spice. But the pumpkin doesn't end there. Once the cookies have cooled they're iced with a sugary pumpkin glazed that makes these cookies the best of both world—all of the crumbly butteriness of a great pie crust combined with pumpkin filling all rolled into a great little cookie.

Bourbon Pumpkin Pie

Serious Eats Lauren Weisenthal 7 comments

This is my dream pumpkin pie, smooth and creamy, with a double booze infusion. There's a hint of bourbon in the filling, but since booze that is baked loses its edge, I've incorporated it into the maple bourbon mascarpone topping as well. The combination of the creamy filling and topping and a light layer of toasted pecans makes this pie the winner for adults this holiday season. More

Pie of the Week: Pumpkin Mousse Pie

Sweets Lauren Weisenthal Post a comment

Nearing The Meal's triumphant end, I often find myself literally forcing pie into my stomach, because it's pumpkin and I love it, even though there's no space left after the turkey and all the trimmings. That level of gluttony can be difficult for some, and if you are one of them, I submit this alternative for your consideration. It has all of the flavor of a pumpkin pie, without the heft of the traditional baked custard. More

I always use homemade pumpkin puree for this pie, which enhances the gorgeous, smooth texture and complex, spicy flavor. Best of all, the filling has just a hint of sweetness, all from brown sugar, so you won't get sweet-fatigue. More

Sweets cakespy 1 comment

It's been proven time and time again that stuff is better when it's baked inside of a cake. For example: cupcake-stuffed cupcakes, truffle-stuffed cupcakes, the entire website Bake it in a Cake.

Halloween Treats: It's The Great Pumpkin Cheesecake

Sweets María del Mar Sacasa 3 comments

Linus sits in the cold pumpkin patch, silly Sally too googly-eyed and blinded by pulsating pink and red cartoon hearts to realize there is no giant gourd coming that night. Oh Great Pumpkin, humble squash, martyr of October. Stabbed, defaced, lit on fire, hidden in metal cans. I too, am looking forward to your arrival, but in a more tangible form. More

Mixed Review: Williams-Sonoma's Pumpkin Spice Cookies

Sweets Lucy Baker 2 comments

Pumpkin cookies are usually moist, cakey treats as soft as a whoopie pie half or a muffin top. I was curious to try Williams-Sonoma's Pumpkin Spice Cookie Mix, because it's meant for either slice-and-bake or cutout cookies. Would all of that delicious pumpkin pie flavor translate to a thinner, crisper cookie? More

I'm putting these pumpkins on a pedestal—literally—in a full-sized cake form tribute to the Mellowcreme Pumpkin. The look may not be exact, but I hope you'll forgive me when you taste it: made using a pumpkin cake generously coated in tinted cream cheese frosting, this is a highly delicious homage to a second-banana Halloween sweet.
