Though most of us visit the pumpkin patch to make jack-o-lanterns, hack coolers or just to roast pumpkin seeds, there is so much more to this fall favorite than might initially meet the eye. Be sure to pick up a sugar pumpkin this season -- they're meant for cooking -- and turn it into something delightfully sweet in your kitchen.
In fact, pumpkin desserts are some of the best sweets for the fall. One can never go wrong with a classic like pumpkin pie or bread, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. Think pumpkin tiramisu, babka and even mousse -- we have those recipes, and more, for you below.
