Pumpkin Dessert Primer (But First, Ditch the Pie!)

After turkey, pumpkin pie is about the most traditional of Thanksgiving foods. But is it any good? Let's face it, pumpkin pie is heavy, dense, cloying, and kind of dull.

20 Easy Pumpkin Desserts to Sweeten the Holidays

Pumpkin pie, we love you. But when it's fall party time (whether it's an autumn dinner party, a Halloween hoedown, or a Thanksgiving spread), we'd like to shake up the dessert table with some pumpkin sweets that are a little unexpected.

For some gardeners, it's the urge to grow mega-pumpkins: the largest pumpkin ever grown (according to the University of Illinois Cooperative Extension weighed 1,140 pounds).
