It is pumpkin season!

pumpkinAs we approach the holiday season, many people have the sudden urge to bake and I am certainly not an exception. One of my favorite holiday ingredients to bake with is pumpkin. So far this season I have only made one pumpkin dessert but I wanted to share it with anyone who is looking for a sweet treat. It combines the delicious flavors of pumpkin and cinnamon with a yellow cake crust. Follow the three easy steps and your mouth will be watering in no time! Enjoy!
