Pumpkin’s culinary calling card may be holiday pies, but it’s equally delicious in other desserts like custards, cookies, cakes (especially cheesecake!) and bars. In fact, creamy pumpkin purée (which can often be substituted for other winter squash) makes terrific savory dishes, too. Try it as filling for ravioli, the focus of a soup, and an addition to grain or vegetable casseroles. It’s also perfect in potpies. You can easily bake your own pumpkin for purée, but be sure to use pie pumpkins rather than jack-o-lantern pumpkins, which tend to be grown for size instead of flavor. And don’t forget to roast the seeds for topping salads or stirring into nut mixes.
