Fall is here and pumpkin time is in full effect! I sat on my deck this weekend in a sweatshirt and I can’t tell you how excited that made me. This also means that I can fully and unapologetically dive in to pumpkin recipes. I know it’s ridiculous, but it makes me so happy.

Fall is my favorite time of year, cooler temps, cozy clothes, comfort food, football, leaves changing and pumpkin everything. I’ll try to add in some other recipes over the next couple months, but for now you get my favorite pumpkin desserts.

I went back to the store this week and lo and behold- the pumpkin was restocked. So I added 8 cans to my cart. I thought that was being conservative and could have added more, but I felt the old lady behind me judging me.

Back home I went and I started immediately on my favorite and most requested pumpkin dessert. Simply put- Pumpkin Bars. These are no ordinary pumpkin bars though- these are cakey, gooey, nutmeggy( yeah, I said nutmeggy) and not overwhelming pumpkin flavor. PLUS- they are super easy and contain a box of cake mix which makes life so much easier.

Give these a try, they are my absolute favorite pumpkin dessert! Let me know what you think. What is your favorite pumpkin dessert or fall tradition?

I'll eat all of those, not even ashamed.
