You’ll Fall for These Pumpkin Sp-Ice Cream Puffs

Christine Nguyen, Managing Editor


Fall is here, and there’s no better time to spice up your dessert repertoire with a unique pumpkin spin on a classic cream puff recipe! You’re sure to impress with these Spiced Pumpkin Ice Cream Puffs — with just a hint of cinnamon, the pastry shell’s light flavor complements the punchy pumpkin ice cream, making a tasty dessert your guests won’t forget. In each bite, a warm, airy crunch is followed by the cold taste of fall — a charming homage to the changing seasons. 


Though the two components are best together, if you’d rather skip the carbs (or you’ve run out of cream puffs), you can still settle in with a sweet bowl of homemade pumpkin ice cream. After all, it’s never too cold for a frozen treat! (Gamut staffers can definitely attest to this.) Our test batch was a little more icy than creamy due to a substitution of reduced-fat milk, but your dessert should turn out effortlessly smooth if you follow the instructions provided. As untraditional as this recipe may be, you’ll likely find these ingredients in excess if you’ve already stocked your kitchen in preparation for the Thanksgiving season — whipping up the two components is a cinch!
