It’s FALL! You know what that means? Pumpkin EVERYTHING. Call me basic if you want, but it’s a must for Fall. Give me all the pumpkin lattes, pumpkin breads and most of all, pumpkin desserts! And while pumpkin spice is delicious and we have to consume everything we can during Fall because pumpkin season will be gone in the blink of an eye, with pumpkin desserts comes sugar (in most cases at least).  So if pumpkin is this Super Mom’s kryptonite, I have to make sure I’m stocked up on our secret weapon. Especially when it comes to our favorite fall pumpkin dessert recipes.

When you find a site called Sally’s Baking Addiction, you can be relatively sure that you are going to find some incredible recipes. And boy did I.  These delicious bars feature a gingersnap crust and brown sugar streusel topping, with a combo of pumpkin pie and cheesecake in the center. YUM! It’s like everything Fall in one bite but I can guarantee one bite won’t be enough. Check out the full recipe here.

This beautiful slice of heaven is a recipe I found on It’s a Mother Thing. It combines two of my all-time favorite things, pumpkin and caramel. And while I’m not a huge cheesecake fan, this one far surpassed my expectations. Going somewhere special for the holidays? Anyone can bring a pumpkin pie, this salted caramel pumpkin cheesecake will help you stand out and have your hosts begging for the recipe. Check out the full recipe here.

Super Easy Pumpkin Pull Apart Bread

The picture alone had me drooling. Sweet Life of Anna describes this as a combination of pumpkin bread and cinnamon rolls. Say. No. More. And best part is that when it says “Easy”, she means easy. It’s actually made of biscuits and pumpkin pie mix, and like a handful of spices and milk. Check out the full recipe here.

Pumpkin Pie Caramel Popcorn

The one thing you will always find in our home is popcorn. My kids are actually eating some as I write this (not even joking).  And when they found out that the hotel we were staying at this weekend, puts out fresh popcorn at night, they actually cheered loud enough for the other guests to stop and look over. When I found this recipe on I Dig Pinterest, I knew that they were going to love it. And boy, was I right. They loved it so much, I didn’t even get a bite! Note to self, if I want to taste it, I should do it before giving the bowl to my kids. Check out the full recipe here.
