I love pumpkin gooey butter cakes thinking about making one but I just made a pumpkin roll.


Not a big pumpkin pie fan, but we LOVE pumpkin chocolate chip cookies!!! Thanks for compiling this list of yummy goodies ;)


Love it! I don't like (actually hate) pumpkin pie as well. Thanks for including the cake recipe- it's a winner. Happy Thanksgiving to you!
