Pumpkins. Sure, we love carving and picking these orange beauties around Halloween time, but most of all, we love eating them. Hands down, pumpkin cheesecake, or any pumpkin desserts for that matter, are our go-to sweet through the holidays.

From pumpkin cheesecake to pumpkin coffee, here are a few of our favorites to put on your fall menu. Let the harvest begin!

Our Favorite Pumpkin Desserts

Harry & David Pumpkin Cheesecake

Pumpkin Cheesecake

Made here in our Southern Oregon bakery, our Pumpkin Cheesecake layers New York Style cheesecake with a layer of pumpkin pie cheesecake. This pumpkin cheesecake definitely proves that delicious doesn’t need to be complicated!

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pie

This delicious gluten-free pie is a classic. Made by hand in small batches in Southern Oregon, you’ll find that each bite tastes like the best of fall. What you won’t find: any gluten, preservatives, or additives.

The Cheesecake Factory Pumpkin Cheesecake

Say hello to gourmet decadence at it’s best (courtesy of The Cheesecake Factory®). This pumpkin cheesecake starts with spiced pumpkin filling and finishes with peaks of whipped cream. Reserve this one for that special celebration. Remember: It’s only available through the holidays.

Deep Dish Pumpkin Pie

Deep-Dish Pumpkin Pie

This is for the real pumpkin lovers out there! Our Deep-Dish Pumpkin Pie is handcrafted by our bakers, using our very own recipe and only the best ingredients. Clouds of whipped cream and cinnamon top this rich and creamy take on a holiday favorite, but the star of the show is an extra-thick layer of spicey pumpkin filling.

Pumpkin Pecan Coffee

Of course, it’s not really dessert without coffee…pumpkin coffee, that is. Our whole-bean, pumpkin pecan-flavored java is divine with a giant piece of pie, and equally satisfying on its own. Cheers!

Now it’s time for you to get down to pumpkin dessert business. Our advice? Try them all! Or, if you’re ready to make your own check out some of our favorite pumpkin recipes.
