Pecan Pumpkin Butter Rolls with Bourbon Cream Cheese Icing

Remember that pecan pumpkin butter? Today I’m going to how you to use half of it and, at the same time, take care of breakfast (or dessert) for the week. These non-cinnamon “cinnamon” rolls use pecan pumpkin butter, brown sugar, and roasted pecans for the filling. After baking, the warm rolls are topped with a [...]

Homemade Pecan Pumpkin Butter

Updated from the archives. No trip to the mall is complete without a 20-minute detour into the shiny, overpriced gourmet kitchen store. We like to slowly creep along the aisles, ooohing over fancy salts, aaahing over delicious oils and gourmet chocolates, and shaking our head disapprovingly at $100 pairing knives. Six (!) years ago, we [...]

Pumpkin Cheesecake Brownies

I know, right? Pumpkin, cream cheese, and fall spices swirled into a moist, chocolatey brownie. Pumpkin cheesecake swirl. Oh, yes. The brownie base is actually my new favorite brownie recipe. It’s a little less fudge-like than I’d normally go for but it’s still on the dense-and-fudgey end of the spectrum. It gets its deep, chocolatey [...]

Baked Pumpkin Spice Donuts

I bought a donut pan last week. And it is the funnest $10 I’ve spent in a while. Donuts are one of the most inexpensive foods you can buy so why make them at home? Because around here, they don’t sell Pumpkin Donuts I took the basic cake donut recipe that came with the pan [...]

There was a small pan of pumpkin cheesecake swirl brownies, Pumpkin Spice Lattes, and a custard that will turn into pumpkin spice [...]

Project: Pumpkin Bread

October 24, 2010

And the new season. The last time I was able to bake for PPQ, it was still summer! People often say that there [...]

Pecan-Pumpkin Bread with Cinnamon-Honey Butter

September 13, 2009

It’s fall! [Insert girly squeal here] I know, I know. Your calendar says differently. But allow me to present to you my evidence: It’s slightly less hot than it was last month. It’s football season! I’ve had wicked cravings for butternut squash and sweet potato [fill in the blank] for the last two weeks. I’ve [...]

Pecan Pumpkin Tart

November 26, 2008

Some people have pie with their Thanksgiving dinner. We have Thanksgiving dinner with our pie. The kitchen island held the turkey, dad’s baked beans, and an array of sides but the “dessert table” was where the real fun was. Growing up, the dessert table took up the entire bar: – 10-12 chocolate pies – 1-2 [...]
