Cook the Book: Pumpkin Baking

Rather than picking just one book for this week's Cook the Book, we went with five. What do they all have in common? Pumpkin, butter, miscellaneous other ingredients, and an oven. Basically our goal this week is to make you eat more pumpkin desserts. We rummaged through our cookbook library to find some favorite recipes: Pumpkin Walnut Cranberry Quickbread from The Sweeter Side of Amy's Bread, Pumpkin Whoopie Pies from Baked, Ginger Custard Pumpkin Pie from The Sweet Melissa Baking Book, Pumpkin Gooey Butter Cakes from Paula Deen's The Lady & Sons Savannah Country Cookbook, and Spiced Pumpkin Muffins with Pepitas from Cowgirl Cuisine.
