Pumpkin pie (and bread, and cookies, and bars) are timeless desserts that have been gobbled up by holiday guests for years. But this year, bloggers are mixing things up. These pumpkin-flavored treats are anything but typical.
Grown-up kids’ snack. These Pumpkin Pie Pop Tarts are the perfect to-go breakfast or snack. Plus, the pastries, from Cooking Classy, can be made in advance and frozen—perfect to serve to overnight guests during the holidays.
Sophisticated sweet. Feasting On Fruit’s Vegan Pumpkin Crème Brulee is both elegant and delicious–great for an upscale holiday party. Besides pumpkin puree, the main ingredient is hemp tofu, which makes the custard super silky.
Early-morning treat. Baked Pumpkin French Toast Casserole from Chew Out Loud is packed full of pumpkin spice. And because this mouthwatering marvel is French toast, yes, you can definitely eat it for breakfast.
Layers of goodness. Sure, this dessert from Beyond Frosting, make look somewhat similar to pumpkin pie. But Pumpkin Pie Lasagna, with its layers of graham crackers, pumpkin mousse, and whipped cream, is unlike any pie you’ve had before.
Party favorite. Oh, Sweet Basil’s no-bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Dip is great for holiday potlucks. For a sweet-and-salty contrast, serve with pretzels. Or for a slightly healthier twist, slice up some apples.
Bite-size confections. Impress guests by setting out bowls of homemade candy. With only six ingredients, these White Chocolate Pumpkin Cups, from OMG Chocolate Desserts, are much easier to make than they appear.
