1.) Pumpkin Bread
The first thing I would recommend, that is a common people-pleaser and my personal favorite on the list, is pumpkin bread. This recipe guarantees moist bread with a hint of cinnamon that reminds you of the comfort flavors of fall.

2.) Pumpkin Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting
If you’re picking your brain for something to bring to that Halloween party you’ve been invited to, then pick no more. Cookies are a delectable addition to any gathering, and to make them seasonal, all you have to do is add pumpkin. For a refreshing contrast to the soft cookies, whip up some cream cheese frosting. You can decorate the cookies with candy pumpkins to make them more festive, or just sprinkle some cinnamon and nutmeg for garnish.

3.) Pumpkin Muffins
Welcome your neighbors into the new season by baking them a fresh platter of pumpkin muffins just out of the oven. Not only will they love you, but you can save some of the batch for yourself to enjoy for later. Like the bread, they are moist and can be eaten for breakfast, dessert or as a snack. It will definitely help keep you going as well as delight your taste buds.
