Some good pumpkin desserts include Pumpkin Mousse from Martha Stewart and Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cake from Taste of Home. Land O'Lakes offers a gluten-free recipe for Spiced Pumpkin Muffins.
The Pumpkin Mousse requires pumpkin puree mixed with gelatin, egg yolks, maple syrup, allspice and vanilla. For an adult version of the dish, cooks can add some dark rum.
The Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cake requires 15 ounces of solid packed pumpkin and 6 ounces of semisweet chocolate chips. The recipe also uses pecans for an extra crunch.
The recipe from Land O'Lakes uses gluten-free flour that contains rice flour, tapioca flour, potato starch and xanthan gum to replace wheat flour. The recipe also requires 1/2 cup of mashed cooked pumpkin.
