The best time of the year is upon us, and with it comes a seasonal favorite flavor: pumpkin. Whether you bow to the throne of pumpkin spice or want to banish the trend, these four gorgeous desserts will at least be pleasing to the eyes. From an imposing pumpkin cheesecake with amaretto whipped cream, orange-almond crunch and fresh figs (pictured above) to teeny-tiny pecan pies, these treats will cause a double-tap frenzy on Instagram.
These pies on a stick get an extra kick from the cayenne pepper and chai spices in their decadent cream cheese filling, and they are adorably photogenic.
Food-processor-made dough and a sticky-sweet filling come together in less than an hour, giving you plenty of time to stage the perfect ‘gram.
Yes, you need to buy tiny cast-iron skillets for this recipe. When you’re done making pumpkin cornbread, use them to serve up individual portions of potato hash for brunch.
