Pumpkin Desserts That Are NOT Pumpkin Pie
This is a list of over 30 Pumpkin Desserts That Are NOT Pumpkin Pie. With everything from pumpkin cheesecake to Bundt cake, pumpkin empanadas to pumpkin doughnuts, and even no bake recipes and candy recipes, this list has you covered. Whether you are looking for a pumpkin dessert for a fall party or for Thanksgiving Day, you'll love this roundup of creative pumpkin ideas! Enjoy!
Instead of pumpkin pie, try serving a pumpkin cheesecake! This recipe for Pumpkin Cheesecake with Cream Cheese Whipped Cream from Life Love and Sugar is a straightforward recipe and sure to be a new favorite!
I love a good make-ahead dessert and these no bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Mason Jars fit the bill. If you are traveling with your dessert simply close the jars with their lids and then uncover them at your destination and add some rosettes of homemade whipped cream.
Mm, this Pumpkin Spice Toffee from Sally's Baking Addiction is such a fun idea! Serve it alongside your other desserts, package it up for a host/hostess gift, or even add some to an appetizer spread for a little something sweet.
This is a family favorite recipe and it's so easy. Pumpkin Ice Cream Dessert is easily made ahead (you'll layer crust and a simple pumpkin ice cream together) and stored in the freezer so it's ready when you are. A great freezer-friendly Thanksgiving dessert!
No bake recipes are so handy when you know you will be running short on oven space (and doesn't everyone on Thanksgiving?). This beautiful Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake from Emma Duckworth Bakes would be a showstopper for sure.
I think a batch of these Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Cookies from Cambrea Bakes would be a lovely addition to a Thanksgiving dessert menu. The perfect bite for those who just want a small dessert after the indulgences of a savory feast.
Mexican Pumpkin Empanadas from Maricruz Avalos will require you to work with pastry, but they are still such a difference from pumpkin pie. I really had to include these sweet pastries--and check of the rest of Maricruz's library of Mexican recipes. The desserts have me captivated!
Lava cakes are such a fun dessert--who can resist a river of chocolate on their dessert plate? These Pumpkin Spice Lava Cakes from Hearth and Vine would be a lovely pumpkin dessert for fall events or Thanksgiving.
