Amanda’s perfect pumpkin recipes

It’s finally fall, and that means one thing – it’s official pumpkin season. Weather it’s carving pumpkins, eating pumpkin foods or drinking pumpkin drinks.
One of my favorite parts of fall is baking anything with pumpkin in it. My top three pumpkin recipes are pumpkin cookies, pumpkin cake roll, and pumpkin bread.
Pumpkin cookies are my number one fall recipe. This recipe is extremely easy to follow and non-time consuming. I often add cream chesses once the cookies are done cooling to add extra flavor.
Pumpkin Cake Roll is my second favorite fall thing to bake. I love baking this because it is a recipe me and my mom have been following for years. We found this recipe from Taste of Home online. If you want to bake this, I suggest having ample time to bake before starting this recipe.
I had to add the classic pumpkin bread to my top three favorite fall foods to bake. This is one of my favorites to bake because it is an easy to follow precipice, you can even turn the bread into muffins. I often bake this the night before a busy day and grab a slice to go in to the morning.
