I’ve never met a pumpkin I didn’t like! Seeing them everywhere lately has my mouth watering for all things pumpkin – like pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, pumpkin cookies! When writing my grocery list earlier, I made sure to include the ingredients I’ll need to bake a couple of loaves of pumpkin bread later in the week . . .
For today though, I want to share a pumpkin recipe that I’ve just discovered. It not only sounds delicious, but has a prep time of just 10 minutes. Ya gotta love that!
This recipe is from the Better Homes and Gardens website, but I’ll include it here for your convenience.
Ok, ttyl. I’m off to add cream cheese to the shopping list. 😉
