The air is cooler, the leaves have that rustling sound and it is quieter. The fields of green are no of longer green corn stalks or green soybeans. The horizon is a golden and amber of fall. Soon we will remember what James Whitcomb Riley wrote, “The frost is on the punkin”.
Pumpkin becomes the vegetable in the dessert buffet. It is delicious with a cream cheese spread. I selected my reliable Pumpkin Bread recipe that was received in a elementary school bazaar. It had to be goo.
Another favorite pumpkin dessert is Libby’s Pumpkin Roll recipe.. It is easy to make this extra special dessert with the canned pumpkin with the cream cheese filling.
I still prefer to buy my pumpkin in a can. Children or grandchildren are not available to enjoy the fun of jack-0-lanterns. Remember when Halloween was a one day event. Now it is as festive with decorations and tree lights like Christmas.
Another favorite dessert in the Midwest is persimmon cake, bread, pudding, cookies and some places have persimmon ice cream! Our family favorite, American Persimmon Cake uses the small Midwest persimmons.

I received a pumpkin recipe that is making me to ‘think outside of the box’ of desserts. jenreviews sent a tantalizing recipe for using pumpkin as a spaghetti sauce.
