|See the pumpkin pie on the can?|
The first two recipes are sweet, using traditional pumpkin pie spices.
The Pumpkin Shortbread Cookies are crispy with less fat than most shortbread recipes. The praline topping makes them reminiscent of pecan pie.
Pumpkin No-bake Cheesecake is similar to pumpkin pie, but with a lighter texture. The ginger snap crust adds a zing to the creamy texture of the cheesecake.
Finally, try the Savory Pumpkin Cheddar Soup. While usually associated with sweet desserts, the smooth, rich flavor of pumpkin serves well as a base for soup. The addition of celery, onion, herbs, hickory flavoring, and cheese gives it a rich, beer cheese soup taste.
