I haven't tried pumpkin flavored coffee. I'm a bit leery. As a writer, coffee is very important to me and I'm a bit fussy when it comes to taste. I love butter rum cakes but hate butter rum coffee. The best coffee I ever tasted came fresh from Puerto Rico. It's was delicious, mild, and I could drink it forever.
Back to my pumpkin obsession. I think it's all the spices that go with pumpkin that make for such delicious desserts. I love the scent and flavor of cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. When you cook with these, it just fills up the house and declares that Fall is here.
I do bake ginger cookies for the family. I use a box recipe, but I grate in a lot of fresh ginger to give the cookies a good kick of flavor. I think it's little personalized touches like that which can make a baker out of someone with no natural talent for baking. (me *grin*)
Lastly, there are the roasted pumpkin seeds. Mmmm. These I do with great success. I love how you can roast them with a little butter and salt for a simple snack, or dress them up with spices. They are delicious and always a favorite at my house.
What foods are you looking forward to baking or buying this Autumn season?
