Bake a Pumpkin Pie, and Try 4 Other Great Pumpkin Recipes

Jack o' Lanterns are great, but this year try our easy pumpkin recipes and tips for cooking with this seasonal squash.
By Amy Ahlberg

This time of year, pumpkins are everywhere. But if all you do is make them into jack o' lanterns, you're missing out on a nutritional powerhouse. The versatile pumpkin is an excellent source of beta-carotene, which our bodies use to make the eye-protecting, disease-fighting antioxidant vitamin A. Just half a cup of pumpkin provides nearly 200 percent of our daily requirement of A. Pumpkin is also an excellent source of vitamin E and a good source of fiber, copper, manganese, potassium, riboflavin, and vitamin C. We've chosen some of our favorite easy pumpkin recipes for you to try—including everyone's favorite, pumpkin pie. But first, for expert tips on preparing pumpkins, we turned to Adriana King, the executive pastry chef at Jones, a Stephen Starr restaurant in Philadelphia, PA, who is serving up a different pumpkin dessert at the restaurant every day in November.
