1. Pumpkin Pie
No other pumpkin recipe is more classic or well-loved than pumpkin pie! There's a reason it has a permanent spot on everyone's holiday dessert table.
This delicious and beautiful pie is easy to make! Plus, you can use fresh or canned pumpkin puree! In addition to being completely decadent, when this is baking in your oven, your house will smell heavenly.
2. Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies
I love the combination of pumpkin and chocolate in baked goods. These cookies are soft, chewy, and filled with deliciously sweet chocolate chips.
Make these cookies in advance or eat them when they're warm and gooey from the oven- they taste phenomenal either way! Go ahead and make a double batch, because you won't have any cookies left over!
3. Pumpkin Streusel Bread
This pumpkin streusel bread is loved by both kids and adults alike. It has the iconic fall-inspired pumpkin flavor, topped with a brown sugar streusel topping to take the flavor to another level!
This versatile treat could be eaten as breakfast, a snack, or dessert because it's just that good! It also makes a perfect gift basket addition or baked item to send to your neighbor's house for the holidays.
4. Pumpkin Zucchini Muffins
The pumpkin puree and pumpkin spice bring the flavor while the zucchini packs in some fantastic moisture to make these muffins super soft! Plus, they are the best way to have a quick, on-the-go breakfast!
5. Iced Pumpkin Spiced Latte
We all know Starbucks pumpkin spiced latte is a huge hit, so how about making a version at home that tastes even better? My iced pumpkin spiced latte is so easy to make and irresistibly tasty that you'll want to drink it daily!
It is so creamy and rich that you'll forget all about the Starbucks drink. (Plus, you'll save some money!) Top it off with some whipped cream and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice, and you'll have the best DIY latte ever!
6. Pumpkin Seed Butter
Pumpkin seed butter is a perfect alternative to your favorite nut butter! It is creamy, tasty, and allergen-friendly!
You can use this seed butter as an alternative to peanut butter (or any nut butter) for absolutely anything! It is amazingly versatile and packed with flavor!
7. Pumpkin Streusel Bars
These delightfully decadent pumpkin streusel bars are a fall treat to remember! They're wonderfully easy to make and truly a great dessert!
8. Pumpkin Fluff Dip
Fluff dip of any flavor is a quick treat, and this pumpkin version packs a ton of flavor! They're exceptionally suited to pairing with graham crackers for dipping!

📖 Recipe Card
Best Pumpkin Recipes: 21+ Great Sweet & Savory Pumpkin Dishes To Make!
- 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour (spoon and leveled)
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (see recipe)
- 1 teaspoon orange peel
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ½ cup butter (unsalted - melted and cooled)
- ½ cup dark brown sugar (or light brown sugar - packed)
- ¼ cup sugar
- ½ cup pumpkin puree
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ¾ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (or milk chocolate, or dark chocolate chips)
- In a large mixing bowl, add the dry ingredients (all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, pumpkin pie spice, and orange peel).1 ½ cups all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon orange peel, ½ teaspoon baking powder, ¼ teaspoon baking soda, ¼ teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- Whisk the dry ingredients together until thoroughly combined, then make a well in the center for the wet ingredients. Set aside.
- In a medium mixing bowl, add the wet ingredients (melted and cooled butter, pumpkin puree, and vanilla extract with the dark brown or light brown sugar and granulated sugar).½ cup butter, ½ cup dark brown sugar, ¼ cup sugar, ½ cup pumpkin puree, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Mix the wet ingredients together until thoroughly combined and all of the lumps of brown sugar are dissolved.
- Add the wet ingredients into the well in the center of the dry ingredients.
- Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients using a spatula or spoon, just enough so that the flour is absorbed and you have a cookie dough that feels a little wet.
- Add the chocolate chips (milk chocolate, semi-sweet, or dark chocolate chips).¾ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Fold the chocolate chips into the pumpkin cookie dough. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
- Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silpat baking mat.
- Portion out the dough in heaping tablespoon amounts and roll into balls that are roughly 1 ¼ inch in size.
- Flatten the dough balls using the back of your spoon, a flat measuring cup, or your fingers. Flatten to about cookie thickness, as the dough will not spread without some help.
- Bake at 350°F (175°C/Gas Mark 4) for 8-10 minutes, or until the cookies don't look doughy anymore.
- Top your baked cookies with more chocolate chips if desired. Allow them to cool on the baking sheet for about 10 minutes before removing the cookies to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.
The flavor gets better in these cookies the longer they sit! The pumpkin flavor will increase, and the texture will get even chewier. Yum!
Storing & Freezing Pumpkin CookiesBaked pumpkin chocolate chip cookies can be stored at room temperature in an airtight container for about a week. If stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator, your pumpkin cookies will last up to 10 days. I prefer to bake my pumpkin cookies first, then freeze once they are completely cooled. I have frozen the cookie dough but found that I wasn't as happy with the baked cookie post-freezing. To freeze your baked pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, wait until they are completely cooled. Place the cookies into a ziploc freezer storage bag or airtight container and freeze for up to 2 months.
