Pumpkin pie is a perennial favorite on the classic Thanksgiving table, but if you are looking to change up tradition this year, we have a few new ideas that are still a nod to the classic. From an elevated Cheeseball to an alternative pie option, we can’t wait for you to try out these pumpkin recipes!
Pumpkin Shaped Cheeseball
Our Pumpkin Pie Cheeseball has all the traditional flavors of pumpkin pie in a convenient mix. The simplest way to enjoy it is by following the package instructions to combine it with cream cheese and butter, then roll it in the included graham cracker topping. To elevate this just a bit, we love to turn it into a pumpkin! Simply make indentions around the cheeseball with the back of a knife and top your little pumpkin with a bell pepper stem. It looks almost too good to eat!
Pumpkin Gooey Bars
If you ask our family here at Wind & Willow our all time favorite recipe, this would be a top contender! Crunchy, gooey, full of flavor, and easy to make, it doesn’t get much better than that. Check out the recipe here for step-by-step instructions. This may become your family’s favorite too!
Pumpkin Pie Cookies
Make the perfect portable pumpkin pie with this semi-homemade recipe that even the kids will love! Top sugar cookies with prepared Pumpkin Pie Cheeseball and finish with a dollop of whipped topping. With this recipe you can eat the entire pie!
Pumpkin Custard Pie
If you aren’t quite ready to depart from a pie this year, try this new take on pumpkin pie. The custard base makes for a smooth and creamy filling that is slightly less intense on the pumpkin flavor than a traditional pumpkin pie. Follow the detailed recipe here and get pumpkin pie skeptics hooked on this new take!
Pumpkin Whipped Dip
As fun to eat as it is to say, Pumpkin Whipped Dip is a favorite all through the holiday season. Follow the Quick Cheesecake directions right on the box (omitting the crust) and fill up a serving dish. This recipe is perfect for grazing on with cookies or apples.
