Good morning, pumpkin!
Five sweet pumpkin recipes to kick off any fall day.
1. Pumpkin Spice Latte
Ditch the syrup pump. Replace the sugar flavoring with real pumpkin puree and spices. But beware: being able to make your own pumpkin spice latte may result in pumpkin overdose. I mean... unless you're OK with that.
2. Baked Pumpkin Doughnuts
We're not saying these pumpkin-cinnamon doughnuts are healthy, but we are saying they're delicious. Being baked instead of fried? It makes us feel OK with cozying up to a second serving.
3. Pumpkin Scones
Is there anything better on a fall morning than a cup of steamy, smoke-dark roast coffee and a pumpkin scone? (Answer: no.) If you don't agree, try these.
4. Pumpkin French Toast
Put on your sweater and snuggle up to one serious comfort dish. Essentially a bread pudding, Pumpkin French Toast is a pretty simple recipe. Dig in here.
5. Pumpkin Frozen Yogurt
OK, a bit of a strange choice for the morning. But talk about pick-me-up! Major brownie points to this recipe: if you can't wait until the yogurt is frozen (or don't have an ice-cream maker), you can eat the mixture just chilled. It's probably also great atop those brownies. Try it.
