The season of Pumpkin Spice is upon us

SPONSORED — While pumpkin spice may have started as a trendy flavor found in a few items, it has become a universal part of culture, signaling the end of summer.

In fact, consumers spend millions of dollars on pumpkin-flavored products every year.

“For the past several years, pumpkin flavoring has swept through stores each fall,” The Nielsen Company says. “And brands continue to jump on the autumnal bandwagon, bringing to market new pumpkin-flavored offerings across categories. These new offerings are benefiting from this popular fall flavor.”

You can embrace the joy of fall flavors in your seasonal celebrations, with these recipes.

Pumpkin pie

When it comes to choosing which pumpkin dishes should make your list, start with the most famous of them all.

“Today, the most popular way to prepare pumpkins is undoubtedly pumpkin pie,” recipe developer Tori Avey writes for PBS. “This trend first began during the 1800’s when it became stylish to serve sweetened pumpkin dishes during the holiday meal.”

There are many pumpkin pie recipes, so pick your favorite from family and friends, or use this recipe, which calls for a pre-made crust to make the process easy.

Pumpkin spice bread

There’s nothing like the smell of baking, and you can fill your home with the blissful aroma of pumpkin bread in the oven. Make it extra special by adding a dose of BSB® , with this recipe from Heritage Distilling:

Pumpkin bread ingredients
3 cups sugar
1/2 cup chopped pecans
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
3 1/3 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda

1 15-ounce can of pumpkin
4 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup water
1/4 cup BSB® – Brown Sugar Bourbon

Spice swirl ingredients
1/2 cup cinnamon sugar
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease two 9×5-inch loaf pans. Using a mixer, stir together all ingredients for the pumpkin bread. Pour 1/4 of mixture in each loaf pan. Mix together ingredients for the spice swirl and sprinkle 1/4 of sugar mix on top of batter in each loaf pan. Top each pan with remaining batter, and sprinkle the rest of the spice swirl on top. Bake 65-70 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. At 30 minutes in, cover loosely with foil to prevent overbrowning. Cool in pans on wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pans and let sit 15 minutes before slicing.
