Cream-Filled Pumpkin Roll

Cream-Filled Pumpkin Roll

I bought a jelly roll pan to make my first roll cake this Thanksgiving, and in the end I was quite happy with my results. What really sold me on this recipe was the beautiful picture in The Pastry Queen cookbook. It is absolutely gorgeous. The cake I ended up with doesn’t look nearly as…

Pumpkin French Toast Casserole

Pumpkin French Toast Casserole

Thanksgiving morning started out on a sweet note with pumpkin French Toast casserole and a Texans victory (even if just by the skins of their teeth). What a nerve-wracking week to be a Texans fan! For the Texans first ever Thanksgiving day game (morning game for us West Coasters), we decided to prepare this French…

Fluffy Pumpkin Pancakes

Fluffy Pumpkin Pancakes

Usually, when I make pancakes at home, they end up too thin for my liking. Don’t get me wrong, they are tasty. But they aren’t like the thick and fluffy pancakes you get from the best brunch spots. That being said, I had buttermilk and some leftover pumpkin puree in the fridge with no planned uses,…

Pumpkin Pecan Cinnamon Rolls + Salty Caramel Cream Cheese Frosting, sweet

Pumpkin Pecan Cinnamon Rolls + Salty Caramel Cream Cheese Frosting, sweet

While we have had success with no-yeast cinnamon rolls, I am now officially convinced they can never replace cinnamon rolls made with yeast-raised dough and lots of time and love. I made The Pioneer Woman’s Famous Cinnamon Rolls with my mom around the holidays a few years ago and had since forgotten how delicious they…

Mini Apple Cider Donuts

Mini Apple Cider Donuts

Last year around this time, we went apple picking as a family (Bonnie included). We had a great time, but the only thing that was missing from our trip was the experience of eating donuts alongside freshly pressed apple cider, something Dustin remembered very vividly from his trips as a kid. We haven’t managed to…

Apple Cinnamon Rolls

Apple Cinnamon Rolls

I love cinnamon rolls. I have a special list of variations on a cinnamon roll that I want to try. Apple cinnamon rolls are one variation that I can now cross off of that list. My cinnamon roll list is one that just keeps growing and growing, but I rarely get to cross off. When…

Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake Swirled Brownies

Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake Swirled Brownies

Now that we are solidly into the month October, I don’t feel so bad completely obsessing over pumpkin in practically every dessert recipe I make. I really wanted to make pumpkin cheesecake brownies, but I have been eating A LOT of dessert lately (as you might have been able to tell if you’ve been reading)…

Pumpkin Doughnuts

Pumpkin Doughnuts

Top Pot makes a delicious old-fashioned pumpkin doughnut that sadly I only sampled once. I wish pumpkin flavored things were in season longer because now that Thanksgiving is over, so is most everything pumpkin. Everybody has moved on to peppermint, eggnog and gingerbread baked goods. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love those flavors too—…

Pumpkidoodles

Pumpkidoodles

Snickerdoodles are a simple and versatile cookie that you can take from a favorite, year-round treat, to a more unique seasonal treat by the addition of some pumpkin. I thought the addition of pumpkin would pair nicely with the cinnamon sugar coating of snickerdoodles. I’m not going to lie— I also liked the idea of combining…

Pumpkin Cake Cookies

Pumpkin Cake Cookies

Among the millions of pumpkin recipes I have accumulated over the past few weeks, I can’t even count the number of cookie recipes I have marked as a “must try” based on the pictures alone. Despite all of these recipes I couldn’t find the perfect recipe for cake-y pumpkin cookies that had the right amount…
