Tomorrow ushers in the first day of fall. The pumpkin craze has already begun with pumpkin spice latte’s and recipes for pumpkin this or that popping up all over our social media feeds. For good reason too! Pumpkin is in season and makes some fantastic treats!
I gathered together some of my favorite ways to enjoy the taste of autumn and to make it easier for you to find your favorites! We’ve got cookies, cakes, drinks, and even muffins you’re bound to love. Check them all out here!
Personally, I can’t think of anything quite more delightful than a muffin paired with cream cheese to start out my day. The Novice Chef has this fantastic Pumpkin Cream Cheese Swirl Muffin I’m just dying to try.
Add this Pumpkin Pie Smoothie from Shugary Sweets to your muffins and I’m thinking the day probably just started out on the right note. If you’re looking for another drink option, you could also try my Pumpkin Milkshake recipe. The girls love this one.
Pair the Smoothie or Milkshake with this Pumpkin Chocolate Chip bread and I think we’ve just created the perfect fall afternoon snack. Surround those chocolate chips with the flavor of fall, and let’s be honest – I’m not sharing this one with the kids.
I won’t leave the kids hanging, though. Afterall, we have to refine their taste buds at a young age right? Add a glass of milk or serve up some more milkshake with these Pumpkin Spice Snickerdoodles from Valerie’s Kitchen. The perfect ending to a perfect fall day I would say.
If you have a fall birthday to celebrate, this Easy Pumpkin Cake should be on the menu. Who wouldn’t love these? Actually, even if you don’t have a birthday this fall, you could just whip up this cake and throw a fall party because we all know Autumn is the best season.
Now, how adorable are these Pumpkin Rice Krispies? Admittedly they don’t actually taste like our favorite fall flavor, but looks have to count for something. They are simple to make and will be a fun treat to share with your child’s friends.
