23 Recipes To Make With Canned Pumpkin

pumpkin muffins, pumpkin bread and pumpkin sweet rolls

Canned pumpkin is a pantry staple. Some people enjoy making pumpkin puree from scratch, but that can be time-consuming. It’s so much easier to grab a can from the closet when a pumpkin fix needs to be satisfied. From hummus to muffins, chili to biscuits, pumpkin can be incorporated into a variety of recipes. Here are 23 recipes you can make with canned pumpkin. Before cooking or baking, though, check the label of the can to make sure it isn’t pumpkin pie filling. The packaging looks similar. Canned pumpkin pie filling is sweetened with fall spices added.
