Have you used pumpkin in anything besides pie?

I've used pumpkin for pumpkin bread as well. It came out really delicious. I didn't venture out to try pumpkin ice cream though, but I have seen it as an ice cream.

  • Oh yes! I've baked it into bread, muffins and cookies. I've also served roasted pumpkin (make sure it's a pie pumpkin and not a field one!) as a vegetable with dinner (works just like an acorn squash but waaaaaaay yummier).

  • I like pumpkin doughnuts at thanksgiving from krispy kreme. You can also add a small can of pumpkin to a yellow cake mix, mix with ingredients as directed, bake until toothpick comes out clean, cool and top w/ cream cheese icing.

  • I have made pumpkin bread & pumpkin muffins! Both are a hit at our house! My husband even has an aunt that calls every fall and asks me to bake them a batch of muffins. : )

  • I've made pumpkin bread and pumpkin muffins. I also have a great recipe for a curried pumpkin soup. You can serve it in the pumpkin shell which is cute.

  • Cake, bread, cookies, muffins and cheesecake, yum!

    Also soup, either a pureed soup, or fresh pumpkin cut in chunks, just like another veggie or squash, done Jamaican style (spicy)

  • My dog had food allergies and to clean her system and do food trials we had to feed her a mixuture of canned pumpkin and beans.

    After picking up orange poop for a year, I have never been able to eat pumpkin since. I used to love pumpkin pie, but now the look and smell gags me.
