What’s better than pumpkin custard, whipped cream and gingerbread? That’s simple — all three layered into one ultimate dessert, of course. This warm and ultra-creamy trifle is the perfect way to end a cozy, intimate night in with the fam. To add a cute personal touch to this trifle, the recipe uses a gingerbread man cookie cutter. Of course, you can use any shape appropriate for the occasion. With the holidays just around the corner, this Wilton Metal Star Cookie Cutter would be a great way jazz up this dessert. Check out the video above for the step-by-step.
It’s crazy how pumpkin spice makes everything so much better, right? Take a look at how pumpkin spice magically elevates a simple and classic treat like cupcakes with cheese cream icing. We swear, these cupcakes will make you say, “Red velvet, who?” To make this dessert even more special, add a bit of ground cinnamon to the cream cheese icing mix.
Did somebody say doughnuts? Oh yeah, that was us. That’s because these pumpkin spice sour doughnuts are this season’s must-have treat. This recipe yields 12 doughnuts and 12 corresponding doughnut holes, but with its irresistible vanilla and maple syrup sour glaze we are more than sure you and your friends are going to want to make multiple batches.
Apple pie or pumpkin pie? If that’s one decision you find difficult to make you’ll absolutely love this fusion of the two classic desserts. Made with a flaky crust, this pie includes caramelized granny smith apples topped off with an irresistible creamy pumpkin filling. To complete the master pie, sprinkle on the sweet butter streusel and serve with whipped cream and/or ice cream.
If you’re a die-hard pumpkin pie fan, you’ll definitely appreciate this easy-to-make mini pumpkin tart recipe. After combining pumpkin purée, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and a few other ingredients, pour them into pre-made tart shells and bake them in an oven for 20 minutes. To make these bite-size treats even more special, spike your whipped cream with half an ounce of brandy.
And who said pumpkin spice had to mean sweet? If you’re all desserted out (although that’s unlikely), try these savoury Pumpkin Tamales with Orange-Ginger Butter.
