We’re in full-on fall mode here in Pennsylvania, and I couldn’t be more happy about it! Today, I’m hoping to send a little bliss to your life by sharing some easy, amazing pumpkin [desserts] recipes you can make for fall. Whether you’re going to a party, or dinner with friends—you’ll have a delicious dessert to contribute to the cause. Here are my top 10 pumpkin recipes for Autumn:

1| Pumpkin Sugar Cookies from CakesCottage


If you want an easy, go-to pumpkin cookie recipe, try this one from CakesCottage.com! The icings pairs perfectly with the pumpkin cookies.

2| Pumpkin Cheesecake from SpendWithPennies

You guys know that cheesecake and pumpkin pie are two of my favorite desserts. So this is basically the best of both worlds with one recipe.

3| Pumpkin Muffins from TheNoviceChefBlog


I’m all about pumpkin muffins regardless of the time of year. When I stumbled across this recipes with the cream cheese swirl—I went to the kitchen immediately.

4| Pumpkin Bread form TheDomesticRebel

This bread sounds and looks absolutely incredible. What drew me to the recipe is the brown butter maple icing. Now that sounds amazing for a fall day!

5| Pumpkin Donuts from BakerByNature


I love that this includes a vegan and non-vegan version. It’s awesome to have a recipe offered for those with diet restrictions. Everyone deserve to enjoy this delicious treat!

6| Pumpkin Waffles from Number2Pencil

I’m all about breakfast food for anytime of the day. So naturally, I was pumped up to find this pumpkin recipe. I’ll be making these over the weekend for Josh and me.

7| Pumpkin Cobbler from CreationsByKara


SO. MUCH. PUMPKIN. The addition to walnuts and pecans to this recipe makes it dynamite. If you love cobblers, this is the recipe you’ll want to save as soon as possible.

8| Pumpkin Roll from GimmieSomeOven

This is one of my favorite fall desserts because it’s a combination of cheesecake, cake, and fall deliciousness all in one roll. This is a must-make recipe for the season.

9| Pumpkin Streusel Bars from ChelseasMessyApron


Does anyone else remember the streusel cakes from their childhood? This reminds me of them, but they also have a caramel, cheesecake flavor added to it.

10| Pumpkin Casserole from LittleSpiceJar

Can we talk about how this is a pumpkin, french toast casserole and YOU can make it with little stress? I love that this is an easy recipe you can make quickly for a dinner, party, etc.
