Let’s talk about pumpkin and pumpkin spice for a second, okay? I’m not the biggest fan of the (in)famous and largely beloved Starbucks‘ Pumpkin Spice Latte, but they do make a killer pumpkin scone.
I don’t care for pumpkin pie, but have a pumpkin bar recipe that’s out of this world.
Maybe you love autumn but you don’t love pumpkin at all, to which I say, to each their own – but then this post probably isn’t for you.
For those of us who enjoy some autumnal-flavored desserts that include some kind of pumpkin pie spice, McDonald’s is once again throwing their hat in the ring with their Pumpkin and Creme Pie.
I mean, it’s no McRib, but neither of them are like actual food, so let’s not pretend anyone is better than anyone else around here, eh?
The Pumpkin and Creme pies at McD’s are much like their hot apple pies – they’re doughy pockets with buttery, flaky outer crust that hold, in this case, some stuff that has the flavor and consistency of a pumpkin pie slathered in whipped cream.
Like the McRib and many other menu items people really like, this pie won’t be around for long. It will probably hang out until around Thanksgiving, before disappearing in favor of something more Christmas-y.
I have no idea what that might be, but i would love to see a hot chocolate inspired pie, wouldn’t you?
Enjoy, my pumpkins! Autumn is here, but before you know it, the dreary winter chill will descend, so don’t miss out!
