Beyond Pie: 26 Pumpkin Recipes to Make This Season

This time of year is all about pumpkins. From the most anticipated drink of the season [aka the PSL], to picking a plump pump in a patch [or at the Union Square Greenmarket], it’s no secret that these gourds rule the months of October through November.

We’ve rounded up 25 creative pumpkin recipes that will make you want to use the fruit [yep, it’s a fruit — we Googled it] every day of the season. And you totally can.
