20 Holiday Pumpkin Recipes –
Not Your Typical Dinner Desserts & Drinks!

Ever wonder what other holiday pumpkin recipes are out there just waiting for you to try? Yeah, me too! We were talking the other day about some non-traditional pumpkin recipes and decided to see what we’ve been missing.

Sure, there’s everyone’s favorite pumpkin pie, which Ethan is about ready to loose the rest of his marbles waiting on. But, what else can you do with pumpkin? Maybe put a new spin on some old favorites even. Personally, I’m waiting for Grandpa over here to make his super, awesome marbled pumpkin cheesecake! Oh yeah, you can bet I’ll post a recipe for that!

In the meantime, because I’m such a giver, I’ve done all the hard work for you once again! Put my stubby little fingers to the keyboard grindstone and searched and researched the internet for just a few more holiday pumpkin recipes you still have time to whip up! And these pumpkin recipes, totally not your typical menu items! I can’t wait to sit down and nosh!

Try some of these out! The pictures alone make me drool just a wee bit!
