Alabama's Best Pumpkin Treats
by Alabama Food Staff
Gingersnap Pumpkin Pie
Pie Lab, Greensboro
Topped with a tangy cranberry glaze, this pie has been featured in multiple publications around the South and will have you longing for the holidays. Order in advance to ensure you’ll be able to get your hands on one this season.
Liger’s Bakery, Montgomery
Nothing beats the decadence of a dense, creamy cheesecake. This one is full of flavors with its blend of spiced pumpkin and tangy cream cheese. Order yours from Liger’s to wow a crowd or surprise a friend with something sweet.
Pumpkin Spice Baby Bites
Pastry Art Bake Shoppe, Homewood
Available daily during the fall, these two (or one) bite morsels are just the right size for a sweet snack. Pick up a dozen or so for your next tailgate party, or just keep them all for yourself. We’ll understand.
Maple Pumpkin Cupcake
Twist Cupcakes, Mobile
Cupcakes have long been popular with Alabama foodies, but this fall-inspired combination takes the cake. Maple flavoring gives this treat an extra hit of sweetness for the truly dessert crazed.
Pumpkin Spice Bread Pudding
1892 East, Huntsville
Don’t wait! This indulgent dessert is featured seasonally and won’t be on the menu long. Homemade spent grain bread is turned into a rich, sweet pudding thanks to pumpkin pie spice, drizzles of caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream.
