Fall is by far my favorite season. I love the boots. The scarves. The changing of the leaves. But most importantly, I love the nationwide obsession with pumpkin spice everything! I love being able to go to just about any restaurant and order pumpkin versions of my favorite treats. Of course, I also enjoy making my own sweet treats at home and this season I’ve been on the hunt for some great pumpkin recipes, since I always default to good old fashioned pumpkin pie.
Pumpkin pie is great, but I’m hoping to broaden my horizons a bit since there are so many other pumpkin recipes that I know won’t disappoint. If you’re also hoping to get your pumpkin fix in a more adventurous way, here are 17 creative recipes for satisfying your pumpkin-craving sweet tooth.

I think I’m going to go for the pumpkin pie ice cream first. I tried to make my own healthy version of pumpkin ice cream a few weeks ago using bananas as a base, and well, it didn’t work out so well. So I’m excited to try that one along with a few other pumpkin recipes on this list.
