Cooking With Pumpkins

Tips for using this autumn favorite in the kitchen

Pumpkins are not just for carving! Make the most of pumpkins this season with these cooking tips from food expert Anna Marie Cesario.

Pumpkins are not only an essential part of Halloween decor, they are also a terrific addition to autumn menus. Enliven your fall fare this year with some of these recipes that feature one of the season’s most bountiful fruits.

Sure, pumpkins make great jack o’lanterns. But they make even better soup. This autumn, warm up with a bowl of our Jack O’lantern Soup — don’t forget to garnish with sour cream for extra effect.

Embrace fall’s harvest by adding a hint of pumpkin flavor to a year-round dish. It only takes 30 minutes to whip together our Pumpkin Spice Rice Pilaf, which includes onions, raisins and Country Crock® Pumpkin Bread. Country Crock® Pumpkin Bread is also an ideal complement to the marshmallow crème, sweet potatoes and pecans of our Sweet Potato Praline Bake. Wash it all down with our Wizardly Pumpkin Juice — a blend of Lipton® Lemon Sweetened Iced Tea Mix, orange juice and pumpkin pie spice.

For dessert, you can’t go wrong with our Classic Pumpkin Pie—always sure to please. But for the especially festive, whip together a Pumpkin Ice Cream Bombe, which celebrates the season in a most vibrant way!
