If you’re looking for a way to fill your holiday table with pumpkin-centric treats, then boy, do I have the goods for you! I recently created a gallery of easy recipes (you might call them hacks) for HGTV.com using canned pumpkin pie filling. The presweetened and spiced filling makes a nice shortcut to delicious fall-themed treats that aren’t a lot of work for those donning the chef’s hat.
There are sixteen recipes total in the gallery on HGTV’s website, but I thought I’d give a little sneak peek of my favorites, like these Pumpkin Pie Phyllo Bites. They use ready-made phyllo shells so you can whip them up in just minutes!
This Pumpkin Spice French Toast Casserole is SO easy, and just involves 4 ingredients (five if you garnish with pistachios). It can be made ahead and makes a wonderful breakfast for overnight guests. It’s so good with maple syrup on the side!
Talk about easy! These Chocolate-Pumpkin Muffins use just two packaged ingredients and will yield moist, springy muffins with a hint of pumpkin and warm fall spices.
OH, yes. These Pumpkin Pie Parfaits speak to my granola-loving heart. We used vanilla Greek yogurt to layer with pumpkin seed granola and pie filling, but you can swap it for your favorite flavor.
All of these recipes were tested with an organic variety of pumpkin pie filling that also contains pure cane sugar. I feel this type of pie filling will yield the best results.
You can check out all 16 treats on HGTV.com, and you’ll find recipe instructions alongside each picture.
Happy Fall! xo-h
