From pumpkin cake to pumpkin tiramisu, our collection of pumpkin spice dessert recipes will help you bring out the very best in this beloved fall flavor.

Pumpkin Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Before spreading it on the cake give in to a small taste of its sweet, creamy perfection.

Pumpkin Pie Bread Pudding

Pumpkin spice dessert recipes that blend two treats in one can have double the appeal and this bread pudding is no exception. Combining a classic English dessert with the flavors of pumpkin pie creates a comforting dish that’s not overly sweet. In this recipe, French bread chunks soak up an egg custard flavored with pumpkin spice, pumpkin puree and sweetened condensed milk. After an hour of soaking, pour the mixture into a shallow baking dish and bake for 45 minutes. Serve warm to make the most of the crispy crust and soft, custardy interior.

You’ll need:

  • French bread loaf
  • Eggs
  • Sweetened condensed milk
  • Vanilla
  • Pumpkin puree
  • Pumpkin spice

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Wondering what can I use if I don’t have pumpkin spice? The cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves in this simple recipe bring the same warm, cozy flavor when added to the dry ingredients. After baking and cooling, drizzle with a sweet glaze of confectioners sugar, butter and vanilla. Just make sure your cookies are evenly baked when they come out of the oven. An oven baking unevenly can yield cookies that are burned on the bottom and underndone on top.

You’ll need:

  • Butter
  • Sugar
  • Flour
  • Cinnamon
  • Nutmeg
  • Cloves
  • Confectioners sugar
  • Pumpkin puree

Pumpkin Spice Latte Tiramisu

What can pumpkin spice be used for besides cakes and cookies? While tiramisu may not be your first thought, the warm spice enhances this traditional Italian dessert. Instead of plain espresso, the lady fingers are soaked in a mixture of  the coffee and pumpkin pie spice. Meanwhile, the classic mascarpone filling gets autumn-ready with the addition of more pumpkin spice and pumpkin puree. Easy fall dessert ideas don’t get any easier than layering the cookies, mascarpone, and whipped cream in a baking dish and refrigerating.

You’ll need:

  • Lady fingers
  • Mascarpone cream
  • Whipped cream
  • Pumpkin puree
  • Pumpkin spice
  • Instant espresso powder
