Pumpkin-licious, or Recipes of Fall

Everyone bakes around the holidays, right?  Well, I sure did this year.  Pre-Thanksgiving, I made pumpkin scones, maple walnut muffins, pumpkin spice marble cheesecake and my classic pecan “delight.”

I was really happy with all the yummy baking.  I made a pumpkin swirl cheesecake 10 years ago that tasted great but didn’t have the right, firm consistency of cheesecake.  This time – success!  I’ve also been making pecan delight every year for 10 years – it’s quite popular with my family and now with my husband’s.  So here are the recipes I used, in case anyone else (like me) still has 3/4 can of pumpkin in their fridge that they don’t know what to do with.

Recipe 1: Vegan Pumpkin Scones with Brown Eyed Baker’s Spiced Glaze

Recipe 2: Maple Walnut Muffins

Recipe 3: Marbled Pumpkin Cheesecake


Recipe 4: Pecan Delight aka Ritz Pecan Pie

Everyone I’ve ever met who tastes this asks for the recipe.  I’ve never made it with chocolate – it is perfect without.  Serve with a dollop of Cool Whip!

P.S. Just in case you’re disappointed in a pumpkin pastry post that has nothing to do with desi cooking, I found some Indian pumpkin recipes just for you:

Happy holidays!
