Get Pumped for Fall with These Pumpkin-Centric Treats
October 4, 2017
Apple picking, cozy scarves, colorful leaves—there's a lot to look forward to in fall. High up on the list is the release of pumpkiny treats. Here are a few seasonal snacks and drinks that you should definitely try this autumn.
Pumpkin Cookie Dough Dip [Wine and Glue]
With a recipe that's mostly butter, brown sugar, and chocolate chips, you'll have a hard time finding someone who isn't obsessed with this pumpkin cookie dough dip. The base is 100% pumpkin puree which, when combined with the butter, sugar, flour, and a blend of autumnal spices, turns into a creamy dip that's the consistency of cookie dough. Add mini chocolate chips as the final flourish, then spread on graham crackers or pieces of fruit.
Pumpkin and Cream Cheese Muffins [Country Living]
Whereas the pumpkin cookie dough dip can be crafted without even turning on the oven, these pumpkin and cream cheese muffins require a bit more baking know-how. But if you put in the effort, you won't regret it. Begin by making the cream cheese filling, and then craft the pumpkin-infused muffin batter. Place a dollop of the cream cheese blend on top of a foundation of pumpkin batter, then cover it up with more batter. Bake and sink your teeth into sweet, pumpkiny muffins oozing sweet cream cheese with every bite.
Pumpkin Coffee or Tea [Best Products]
You don't have to DIY in order to enjoy the flavors of the season. Most grocery stores fill their shelves with pumpkin-spiced goodies, like World Market's Pumpkin Spice Blend Coffee and Celestial Seasoning's Sweet Harvest Pumpkin black tea. What better way to warm up on a chilly fall day than with a cup of something sweet and seasonal?
