BAY CITY, Mich. - Autumn has officially arrived which means that cooler weather, warmer drinks, and pumpkin inspired food are all making their presence known.  While pumpkin pie is a delicious go-to food for the Fall season, it's always nice (and delicious!) to try new recipes! That's why we've come up with 3 pumpkin recipes for Autumn that you and your family are sure to love!

1. Pumpkin Pie Muddy Buddies (AKA Pumpkin Puppy Chow). You'll need:

  • 1 Box Cinnamon Chex Cereals
  • 1 Cup Pumpkin Pie Hershey Kisses
  • 1/2 Cup Cream Cheese Canned Frosting
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla
  • 1 1/2 Cups Powdered Sugar
First, microwave the hershey kisses and cream cheese frosting in a large bowl. Do this in 30 second increments until the mixture is smooth and melted, then mix in the vanilla. Using a rubber spatula, mix in the Chex cereal 2 cups at a time until it is completely coated. Place the powdered sugar into a (clean) paper bag and spoon the cereal mixture into it. Roll the top of the bag down and shake vigorously to coat the cereal. When it is coated, store in an airtight container and eat when the mood strikes!

  • 1 Tsp. Baking Powder
  • 1/2 Tsp. Baking Soda
  • 1/4 Tsp. Salt
  • 1 Tsp. Ground Cinnamon
  • 4 Oz. Butter, Softened
  • 1/2 Cup Packed Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 1 Tsp. Vanilla
  • 1/2 Cup Whole Milk
  • 3/4 Cup Canned Pumpkin
  • 6 Tbsp. Butter, Softened
  • 4 Oz. Cream Cheese, Softened
  • 1 Tsp. Vanilla
  • 2 Cups Powdered Sugar
For this recipe, you'll want to preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with wax paper or something similar. In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Then in another bowl, beat (from the cookie ingredients) the butter, brown sugar, and sugar until it is light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs and vanilla, then slowly add in the milk and pumpkin. Finally, add the dry ingredients and beat until blended. Spoon out small amounts of the cookie mixture onto the banking sheets and bake for 12-14 minutes, then let cool. While your cookies are cooling, combine the filling ingredients together and beat until smooth. After your cookies are cool, frost the bottom of each cookie and press together to make a cookie sandwich. It's that simple!
