Pecan Pumpkin Pie
We've saved you the trouble of making two types of pie by rolling pumpkin and pecan into one delicious dessert.
Roast Pumpkin with Cheese
Slices of baguette, Gruyère, and Emmental coalesce into a rich, velvety concoction that is utterly fabulous served with a scoop of tender pumpkin flesh.
Sour Cream Pumpkin Pie
Most of the pumpkin pies you encounter nowadays are very sweet and quite firm. Ours is different. It's a tender, custardy pie with a sweetness tempered by the subtle tang of sour cream.
Pumpkin Potato Purée
This side dish of silky mashed potatoes sweetened with pumpkin, seasoned with fresh sage, and laced with melty strands of Fontina cheese is full of favorite autumnal flavors.
Pumpkin Parfaits
Imagine the wonderful flavors of pumpkin pie rejiggered into a dreamy mousse layered with cool whipped cream and crumbles of spicy gingersnaps.
Pumpkin Stuffed with Vegetable Stew
Vegetarians deserve a showstopping centerpiece for their main course, too, and this burnished pumpkin, filled with a fragrant stew, will have even meat eaters saying, "Who needs a turkey?"
Pumpkin Ginger Cheesecake Pie
Embrace the flavors of autumn with this luscious take on a classic. The pumpkin not only lends richness but also makes the pie a stunner.
Pumpkin Soup with Red Pepper Mousse
A Spanish pumpkin soup gets a kick from red pepper mousse made with sherry, hot smoked paprika, and heavy cream.
Pumpkin Cake with Sage Ice Cream
The Spanish pumpkin syrup that tops this dessert is equally good drizzled on an aged cheese such as Manchego or a fresh cheese like ricotta.
Orange Pumpkin Cloverleafs
Classic shape plus not-so-classic flavors give these rolls an element of surprise. Leftovers would be awfully good slathered with butter and toasted for breakfast.
Pumpkin Bread Pudding
Soft cushions of country bread soaked with rich custard—there's no better dessert to cozy up with on a chilly autumn evening than this sultry bread pudding, fragrant with warm spices.
Pumpkin, Corn, and Lemongrass Soup
Soups with anything but a broth base are a rarity in Chinese and Japanese households, but corn soups and pumpkin soups—favored Western imports—are the exception.
Spiced-Pumpkin Soufflés with Bourbon Molasses Sauce
Though these delicately spiced soufflés reach toward the skies, they capture the fragrant earthiness of pumpkin. Best of all, this airy alternative to pumpkin pie leaves you satisfied, not stuffed.
Pumpkin Ginger Rice Pudding
Caramelizing the top of this pudding adds an extra depth of flavor, but it's equally delicious without. A blowtorch works best here; the broiler didn't give us the uniform browning we wanted.
Pumpkin Seed Brittle
Fall's favorite seed takes a turn for the sweet with this simple, crunchy candy starring pepitas.
Caramel Pumpkin Pie
Caramelized sugar laces this classic with a sensuous richness, extraordinary in the context of this unbelievably light and delicately spiced pie.
Pumpkin Flan with Spiced Pumpkin Seeds
A bite of this flan, fragrant with traditional pumpkin-pie spices, is very comforting despite the dessert's modern looks; a topping of pumpkin seeds, seasoned with cayenne, creates a play of sweet and heat.
Kataifi with Candied Pumpkin and Yogurt
A refreshing way to finish the meal, this Greek-inspired dessert features kataifi, a seductively crisp, light Middle Eastern dough.
Baked Pumpkin with Lemon
This dish is perfect to serve with quinoa or wild rice as a main to a non-meat-eater, or as a side with some roast chicken for the carnivorous.
Pumpkin Tart with Anise-Seed Crust
Truth be told, it's hard to reinvent the Thanksgiving wheel year after year. But this crust—anise seeds baked into sweet pastry dough—is a little kiss of Italian spice.
Maple Apricot Granola
Packed with flax seeds, pumpkin seeds, and almonds, this granola is far more exciting than what you'll find in the cereal aisle; the optional touch of crystallized ginger adds a spicy kick.
Spicy Green Salad with Manchego and Pears
The gutsy contrast of assertive greens with juicy pears, slivers of Manchego, and toasted pumpkin seeds lets guests know right from the beginning that this meal will be full of personality.
Pasta with Pesto My Way
For the pesto mixture, we switch from pine nuts to pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds, and incorporate flat-leaf parsley in with the basil. To top it all off, we add homemade bread crumbs.
Dulce de Leche Half-Moons
Known as pepitorias, these tasty caramel-filled wafer "tacos" embellished with toasted pumpkin seeds are a regular offering at Mexican markets and sweets shops.
