Pumpkin is the ultimate classic fall ingredient - it signifies Thanksgiving and Halloween and harvest. In Part 1 of our great pumpkin recipe roundup we focused on breakfasts, breads, beverages and savoury side dishes. In today's Part 2 we're all about decadent pumpkin treats! So if you've got a sweet tooth then this is for you!
