Best pumpkin recipes! It’s 25 ways to use a can of pumpkin that aren’t pie, plus one that is!


I compiled my pumpkin recipes into one, easy downloadable place so you can refer to them anytime you want. You can always find my downloadable ebooks on my Store page, friends.

There are, yes, 26 recipes total in this ebook, and one of them is the classic pumpkin pie with coconut milk instead of evaporated milk! It’s made in a deep-dish pie crust, and I make it exactly twice a year and have for a very long time.


I love having all of these recipes in one place because my pumpkin desserts for two almost never use an entire can of pumpkin (the exception is my full-size pie with coconut milk that is in the book!).

Normally, my recipes are small scale, so we only use a small portion of the can of pumpkin. Anywhere between 2 tablespoons for a pumpkin snickerdoodle recipe to 3/4 cup for a pumpkin cake recipe.

If you have an open can of pumpkin or any type of leftover pumpkin, these recipes are for you!

Best pumpkin recipes ever:

This ebook has pumpkin breakfasts, desserts (of course), and one dinner for two recipe that will become your new Fall recipe:  pumpkin gnocchi with sage butter sauce.

And because I know this question might come up, I will answer it ahead of time: I tested everything with canned pumpkin puree. Not canned pumpkin pie filling, and not fresh homemade pumpkin puree. I’m sorry about that, but I found it’s best for recipe testing purposes if we all use the same can of pumpkin. Your homemade pumpkin puree might be drier than a canned version; there’s no way to tell.

The brand of canned pumpkin that I personally use is Libby’s, but that part isn’t too important. Use your favorite brand in all of these recipes.
