Great Pumpkin Search 2015: In the Kitchen

It’s the week before Halloween. Many pumpkins are being carved into spooky faces to scare away the monsters that lurk on All Hallows Eve. Here at Creations from the Creative I’m carving up pumpkins to eat.

I’ll share some quick-make pumpkin delights, straight from a store, and two DIY recipe perfect for Halloween.

Before I dive into the DIY, I wanted to add a quick review of

Burger King’s Oreo Pumpkin Milkshake.

I couldn’t resist sipping it down before snapping a quick photo. This shake tastes like Oreos with just a hint of pumpkin spice. The Oreo crumbles are the main star in this drink. Pumpkin is just a by-standard, but they make a good pair. I have to admit there was a smoky aftertaste that I’m not sure was intended. I think it might have been the byproduct of the shake being made near the burger broiler.

 

Now, onto the DIY!

First we have Spiced Pecan Pumpkin Muffins from Williams and Sonoma.
