There are plenty of things that ring in the changing of the seasons and the arrival of Fall: the leaves changing colors, the air getting cooler, but most importantly, the return of Starbucks' legendary Pumpkin Spice Lattes.
Effective today, August 28, Pumpkin Spice Lattes have returned to Starbucks stores. But the fun doesn't stop there! Try these 17 recipes for pumpkin-flavored treats to keep the festivity of the season going all autumn long.
And check out my pumpkin-inspired Pinterest board for more ideas that didn't make the cut!
1. Homemade PSLs
Why spend $5 on it at Starbucks when you can make a huge supply from your own kitchen? Be the favorite friend by inviting everyone over for some.
And add booze for a nice grown-up treat.
2. Pumpkin butter
Takes 5 minutes to make and then you can spread it all over everything you eat this fall to make it pumpkin-y.
Like the fluffy frosted things from the grocery store that gave us all cavities as children. Recipe here.
4. French toast
The ultimate breakfast.
Almost better than halloween candy. Recipe here.
6. A savory tart
Not all pumpkin recipes have to be cloyingly sweet desserts. Try this one here.
7. Pumpkin Pecan Cobbler
Serve it hot with a cold scoop of ice cream.
8. PSL bites
Like little donut holes that require no baking.
9. Stuffed Shells
Another savory pumpkin dish that features my other great food love, cheese.
10. Pumpkin pie
Much yum. Recipe here.
12. Pumpkin pie dip
Yummy, creamy dip perfect with cinnamon sugar pita chips.
Super yummy and customizable.
Stacked with protein and even better for you than actual pancakes.
15. Ice cream
Creamy and boozy, what a dream.
Not quite pie, but another creamy pumpkin dessert.
Perfect for bringing all the plaid-clad boys to the yard. And for satisfying the pumpkin craving when it's still 92 degrees out.
So happy cooking and my the Pumpkin Spice be always in your favor.
