Is it really fall if you haven’t indulged in a pumpkin spice latte…and a slice of pumpkin pie…with a side of pumpkin ice cream? The season of the squash is upon us, and in order to *properly* bask in this orange gourd’s glory, we’re turning on our oven and churning out all the pumpkin desserts we can think of. From pumpkin angel food cake to pumpkin spice toffee (and pumpkin cookies, pies and brownies, too), consider this your bucket list for everything sweet, spicy and autumnal. You have from now until Thanksgiving to bake them all—just kidding. (Or are we?)
