Pumpkin Recipes

Ten plus recipes made with pumpkin, canned, or fresh.  I have included cakes, cinnamon rolls, muffins, soups, and a recipe for the most delicious Honey Pumpkin Cornbread. Are you a fan of pumpkin recipes?  I can't wait for Pumpkin season.  It seems to come earlier and earlier every year. Even though some of the pumpkin products may be marketing ploys some people seem to welcome it back every year. Part of the hoopla is the warmth the fall season brings, mugs of apple cider and pumpkin bread, playing in the leaves, and wrapping up in cozy blankets.

Cranberry Raspberry Crumb Bars

. I am so happy to be guest posting for Melissa from Served Up with Love today.  I wish we lived next door to each other so we can share our recipes with a morning cup of coffee like we did at the Southern Food Bloggers Retreat.

Buckeye Fudge

Buckeye Fudge  is a creamy peanut butter fudge layer covered with a thick layer of chocolate ganache.  This is the best way I can describe it.  Two amazing fudge flavors stacked on top of each other.    Like Christin says, peanut butter and chocolate, "What's not to love! I have heard of Buckeye Candy before, but I have never made it for some reason.  I  can't imagine why.  I first became aware of the Buckeye Fudge version from Christin over at Spicy Southern Kitchen . As soon as I saw this fudge on her website,  I wanted to make it, and I knew it would be perfect in our  Christmas treat boxes. It is absolutely the best fudge. It is close to becoming my favorite fudge, with my Mother's Millionaire Fudge being my favorite.

Lunch Lady Brownies

A lunch lady from Idaho introduced these perfectly rich, fudgy chocolate brownies more than 50 years ago.

White Chocolate Cherry Nut Cookies

Cookie trays are the perfect dessert around the holidays because they can be made in advance and are easy to serve with little fanfare.  They are the star on the table of any gathering. My daughter-in-law, Brandy, adapted this recipe for White Chocolate Cherry Nut Cookies from my recipe for Chocolate Drizzled Cherry Delights .   She came up with the idea to add white chocolate chips and pecans to the cookie batter and drizzle white chocolate over them.  Turns out I really like these over the chocolate ones.   Since there are some in the family that prefers the chocolate ones, that's the reason you make both and let everyone choose for themselves. These White Chocolate Cherry Nut Cookies are soft and chewy with chunks of white chocolate, chopped candied cherries, and crunchy pecans in a Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix.   These cookies are so easy and quick to make.  Don't underestimate the flavor and richness of this holiday cookie.
