- It can be savory or sweet. Add onion and spices to transform it into a savory dish. Add cinnamon and nutmeg to craft a sweet treat.
- It can be cold or hot. Add cool whip and pudding to mold a frozen indulgence. Roast it in the oven and add to pasta to make a warm comfort-food dish.
- It is great for kids and adults. Kids do the drawing and carving; adults do the eating.
This scrumptious, fall jack-of-all-trades (pun intended): pumpkin.
This morning, I am savoring a frozen delight: Pumpkin Crunchers.
Thanks to Hungry Girl, I discovered this unique recipe for an ice cream-like treat with five ingredients: pure pumpkin, Cool Whip, vanilla pudding mix, Fiber One cereal, and cinnamon. Fold the ingredients together, drop them in a muffin tin, and pop them in the freezer. Hours later, you have a sweet, healthy treat that will give you that pumpkin dessert fix without any hassle.
Other pumpkin favs:

Pumpkin dishes I want to try:

I hope you enjoy this fantastic ingredient and use it to the fullest as the leaves change color and fall truly settles in!
