Welcome to Day 22 of Crafty October 2014 (check out 2013 and 2012 here) – a month of Halloween Ideas here on The Purple Pumpkin Blog!

17 Pumpkin Recipes including classic pumpkin pie, pumpkin spice doughnuts, copycat Harry Potter Pumpkin Juice, and Pumpkin Pie Crème Brûlée

I know this year I’ve been a bit thin on the ground with new ideas for Halloween, but I’ve got so many great ideas from the past few years, it’s a shame for them to be languisihing in the archives! Here are 17 recipes using pumpkins as an ingredient. (The last couple are using butternut squash, but you can easily substitute, and one is using pumpkin seeds!)
