You know the approach of fall is upon us when the Pumpkin Spice Lattes appear at Starbucks.

We’re well into the fall season now and Christmas decorations and recipes and coffee drinks are on the menu.

But it’s not quite Thanksgiving, so there’s still time to enjoy some delicious pumpkin. Whether it’s pie, or cheesecake, or soup that you crave, nothing quite says fall like the flavor of pumpkin.

Here are some favorite recipes you might want to try. And remember, these are just a sampling. The choices really are endless.

Old Fashioned Pumpkin Pie
Simply Recipes offers up a made from scratch recipe with pie made from a fresh pumpkin or pumpkin purée from a can. The choice may be a taste preference, but either version sounds delicious.

Savory Pumpkin Soup
Minimalist Baker has a simple, but tasty, recipe for pumpkin soup. Try this seven ingredient soup that starts with sugar pumkins.

Pumpkin Bread
Once Upon a Chef shares memories of her grandmother’s pumpkin bread recipe and, best of all, shares the recipe. It’s a delicious family tradition.

Pumpkin Cookies with Brown Butter Icing
Martha Stewart says these cookies “transform pumpkin pie flavors into portable treats.”

Pumpkin-Pecan Cheesecake
It’s hard to go wrong with a recipe from Southern Living. This one combines the best of Thanksgiving dessert favorites topping the pumpkin cheesecake with a sweet praline topping.

We haven’t tried all of these. If you do, let us know how they turn out, or post your favorite recipe (or link to) in the comments.
