Sweet Pumpkin Treats

This time of year, pumpkin reigns supreme in dishes both sweet and savory. We love adding it to baked goods to cut fat and add flavor, and its natural creaminess and thickness lend well to desserts. Here, we're sharing 15 of our favorite ways to serve pumpkin as a seasonal treat. From banana to chocolate, and from cookies to ice cream, you'll find the perfect pumpkin dish to suit your sweet tooth.
