If fall had an official flavor, there’s no doubt it would be pumpkin spice. Whether you’re the type of person who snags a pumpkin spice latte the minute coffee shops release them or prefer to enjoy the flavor when you’re downing a slice of pumpkin pie over the holidays, pumpkin spice recipes always play a special role in the season—so why try your hand at a few? Even the most novice of cooks can whip up a few pumpkin spice-inspired recipes, and thankfully, there are plenty from which to choose.
After perusing pages of pumpkin spice baked goods, breakfasts and even savory meals, we realized something: all of these recipes relatively uncomplicated and—dare we say—pretty easy! Just because you might prefer takeout to planning and making a four-course meal doesn’t mean you, too, can’t bring a little bit of fall into the kitchen. There are endless ways to use pumpkin pie spice (Yes, that’s the spice that’s in all your favorite pumpkin spice dishes!) and lean in to the unofficial taste of autumn.

You don’t have to wait until Thanksgiving to put pumpkin in everything—just try one of the 10 recipes below. Fans of pumpkin pie will drool over the pumpkin spice Oreo cheesecakes recipe, while those who love a good savory dish won’t be able to pass up the roasted butternut squash soup (that does, indeed, use pumpkin pie spice).
