12 Canned Pumpkin Dessert Recipe Ideas
While it’s great to make your own pumpkin puree, let’s face it: sometimes it’s just easier to buy the canned stuff. Up until now, you may have noticed a shortage of canned pumpkin in stores. A bout of bad weather conditions left the harvest season rather scarce but worry not, manufacturers have been able to replenish their crop and round up enough of that orange canned goodness to keep up with our pumpkin baking needs!
