Pumpkin and Halloween Cookbooks List
You may remember how much I love the Nitty Gritty cookbook series. This 4.5 x 5.9 x 0.3-inch, 78-page cookbook follows the same format. No images but simple instructions in cups and generally basic recipes will meet all your pumpkin flavor needs — and beyond.
Chapters include: All I know are the following: Pumpkin Base; Snacks, Brads, and Breakfasts; Pies and Desserts.
How about a homemade Pumpkin Apple Pie? Maybe a Pumpkin Nut Bread will fit your occasion better. Or try the Pumpkin Gingerbread Pie or the Pumpkin-Pecan Pie. I always find great recipes in the other books within this series. I see no reason why this one won’t become a new favorite, too.
It’s an 8 x 0.52 x 8-inch cookbook devoted to Halloween treats. You know Betty Crocker cookbooks go heavy on the pre-made, pre-packaged stuff — and this one isn’t any different. Full-color pics accompany each recipe in the 207-page cookbook.
Chapters include: Planning a Fright Fest, Ghoulish Giftable Goodies, Bewitching Bites and Drinks, Mystifying Main Dishes, Spooky Cupcakes and Cakes, Frightful Cookies and Other Treats.
Candy Corn Bark is on my list (my youngest LOVES candy corn), Spiderweb Deviled Eggs are something I’ve never seen before, and Honey-Pumpkin Dessert Squares look great. The majority of recipes do appear to use items from the Crocker family of products (except for those I mentioned), but you’ll still find a few homemade things here and there. At least you’ll get a few new ideas out of it.
Beautiful and fancy, this 96-page, 7.75 x 0.75 x 7.75-inch cookbook is packed with mouthwatering photos. If you think pumpkin and squash are boring, this cookbook will change your mind. These are company-worthy recipes. Look for the version that matches the cover image on the right (it features a pie) if you want to use cups. Otherwise you’ll deal in grams.
Chapters include: Introduction; Light Bites; Soups and Salads; Rice, Pasta, and Grains; Main Courses; Sweet Things and Preserves; Mail Order and Websites.
Spiced Squash and Feta Filo Pastries; Courgette, Lemon, and Poppyseed Cake with Lemon Butter Icing; Courgette and Ricotta Loaf; and Pasta with Courgette, Mint, Lemon and Cream make my “nice” list.
Quick! Flip to page xvii and tell me masks weren’t terrifying. This is a carefully-created cookbook. Each recipe includes an image and a little summary text (you know I love that). It’s a 224-page, 8.75 x 1 x 11.25-inch cookbook with recipes to suit any taste.
Chapters include: Pumpkin Lore and Legend, Ingredient Notes, Cooking Methods, Preparation Basics, Soups, Side Dishes, Light Meal Entrees and Snacks, Cookies and Bars, Desserts and Pies, Cakes and Cupcakes, Muffins and Loaves, Odds and Ends.
Cook up Pumpkin-Tarragon Soup, Creamy Pumpkin Soup with Fresh Pear, or Pumpkin Herb Bread Pudding. The Skinny Pumpkin Banana Smoothie looks refreshing. I’m a huge fan of cardamom, so the Cardamom Cookies with Pumpkin Frosting are screaming my name (and loud). The Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies and the Pumpkin Delight Oatmeal Cookies look incredibly soft. This is a unique cookbook and one I’m ready to break out any season. I can always use a new pumpkin muffin recipe.
Fans of the Gooseberry Patch cookbooks will love this pumpkin cookbook. With nothing but pumpkin recipes (scratch-made and convenience foods), it’s a spiral-bound cookbook with the usual Gooseberry style. At 128 pages, the 4.43 x 0.9 x 6.1-inch will keep you plenty entertained—give you all kinds of ways to use your canned pumpkin.
Chapters include: No chapters.
Pumpkin Oat Scotchies, Grandma Ila’s Pumpkin Cookies, Pumpkin Whoopie Pies, and Make-Ahead Pumpkin Pie French Toast hit the right notes. There are no images but illustrations throughout, as is typical with the Gooseberry Patch Series.

I’ve raved about James McNair before when I wrote about pudding cookbooks. This 96-page, 8.75 x 0.25 x -inch squash-themed cookbook is a winner. With just 35 recipes, it’s not a big cookbook. But it does have a fine assortment of pumpkin things. Images abound.
Chapters include: A Diverse Family, Summer Squash, Winter Squash.
Gather ingredients for Winter Squash Risotto, Sauteed Pumpkin with Green Pumpkin Seed Sauce, Golden Yeast Rolls (made with pumpkin) and look absolutely gorgeous), and Mexican Pumpkin Turnovers are but a small assortment of recipes I quite like the sound of.
I appreciate cleverness in any form. This 164-page, 8.63 x 0.75 x 9.88-in cookbook is Clever City. It’s absolutely gorgeous too.

Tempt your guests with the Red Velvet Midnight Espresso Cake with Stained-Glass Candy Shards or Willy’s Mango Panna Cotta. Make Silence of the Lamb Chops or Evil Dead Shrimp. I make the Love It Sauce. How funny! We call it Alfredo sauce, but it’s not a true Alfredo.
The main idea of this 224-page, 6 x 0.48 x 8.98-inch book is how to grow 95 types of pumpkins. However, it does include a chapter with pumpkin recipes, such as pumpkin pie, muffins, pumpkin beer, and canning.

Roasted Pumpkin Salad, Butternut and Zucchini Pulao (a Persian dish), Zucchini and Pattypan Salad with Pumpkin Seed Oil Dressing (because you know you need new recipes for all that zucchini!), and Pumpkin Seed Granola look great. Pumpkin Curd Tartlets are an interesting twist on a classic. This cookbook is more interesting than you may think if you made an assumption based on the pages and number of recipes.

Bacon makes everything better, so no wonder it found its way into this Pumpkin and Bacon Soup.

I’m a ginormous fan of what I’m seeing in this cookbook. I know you’ll love it too.
It’s another of the small binder-style cookbooks Taste of Home (TOH) occasionally publishes. Every recipe is easy to read and includes an image. Some recipes begin with packaged stuff in this Taste of Home pumpkin cookbook.

Chapters include: Breakfast and Brunch, Savory Pumpkin, Pies and Tarts, Cakes and Cupcakes, Delicious Desserts, Cookies and Bars.
Pumpkin-Ginger Scones are going on my “make now” list. I’ll probably add the Pumpkin Waffles with Pumpkin Marmalade, Pumpkin Pancakes with Apple Cider Syrup, and Cinnamon-Sugared Pumpkin-Pecan Muffins to that same list. That’s only the first few pages. This wouldn’t be Little Indiana Bakes if I didn’t throw a cookie in there. How’s Macadamia Nut White Chip Pumpkin Cookies? We do love pumpkin — all year.

It’s a 96-page, 6.25 x 0.75 x 6.25-inch cookbook emphasizing healthy choices, but I wouldn’t have guessed that looking at the recipes. Images aren’t with every recipe, but the clear font makes up for it.
Chapters include: Cocktails and Beverages; Appetizers; Sweets; Breakfast; Soup, Stew, and Chili; Main Dishes; Veggie Sides; Condiments; Pumpkin Pie Spice Blends.
This book is worth the pumpkin pie spice blends alone. Choose from basic homemade pumpkin pie spice to Scandinavian to Jamaican, Spicy, or Mexican for an assortment of different homemade pumpkin pie spice flavors. I love chai tea.
This cookbook offers Pumpkin Spice Chai Latte (YUM!). Pumpkin Spice Coffee Drink, Gingerbread Cupcakes, Spicy Apple Cheesecake, Spicy Waffles, and Morning Spice Muffins look good to me.
Chapter pages include a list of all the recipes in that section. This is a 128-page cookbook on the fancier side. Although it isn’t packed with images, the images are wonderful. These are restaurant-quality dishes. It uses grams, not cups.
Chapters include: Soups, Starters, and Relishes; Salads; Fish Dishes; Meat and Poultry Dishes; Main Course Vegetable Dishes; Desserts and Baking.
Choose Pumpkin, Bacon, and Tomato Skewers or Curried Lamb and Pumpkin Koftas. Maybe you’ll make Brussels and Squash with Tomato Spaghetti or Fisherman’s Pumpkin Pie? It’s a nice start.
How about the Date and Pumpkin Cake topped with whipped cream and grated chocolate or the Pumpkin and Lemon Roulade for a showstopping finish? Fancy, isn’t it?
I’m always a fan when a cookbook lists the recipes and page numbers right in the Table of Contents. Get out of your boring pumpkin baking rut and into this 80-page cookbook highlighting the fancier side of pumpkins (and squashes).
Images pair with most recipes (and are wonderful). The 1998 version (Zucchini, Pumpkins, and Squash features illustrations, not images, but recipes appear to be the same).
Chapters include: About Pumpkins and Squash; Breads and Breakfast; Soups, Starters, and Purées; Entrees and Side Dishes; Desserts.
Soups on if you serve Corn Chowder in Mini Pumpkin Shells. Kick things off with Pumpkin with Browned Butter, Sage, and Asiago or get to the main course with Pomegranate Chicken with Pumpkin and Sage or Roasted Herb Chicken with Autumn Vegetables.
Dessert could feature the Old-Fashioned Sugar-Pumpkin Spice Cake or Pumpkin Eggnog Bombe with Caramelized Pecans.
Canadian chefs submitted recipes for the “Flavours Series” of cookbooks. Each recipe includes the name and location of the restaurant (and usually the chef, too) in this 96-page, 8.25 x 0.5 x 9-inch book.
These recipes were tested and adjusted for use by the home cook. They typically include serving suggestions or helpful tip. The recipe instructions include cups and milliliters. Images are not always recipe-specific.
Chapters include: Introduction, Breakfast, First Course, Entrees, Sides, Desserts.
I like how the chapters list the contents (even if it doesn’t include the page number after each recipe). Okay, this cookbook has a WOW sort of assortment. Ready? Sticky Toffee Pumpkin Pudding, Maple Roasted Pumpkin and Pear Soup, Pork Tenderloin with Chili-rubbed Pumpkin Seed Crust, and Grilled Shrimp and Scallops on Pumpkin Purée. This is a solid cookbook for restaurant-quality pumpkin-themed foods at home.
It’s plant-centered but not obnoxious about it. While it’s not typically my cup of tea, these recipes do sound good enough to dig in a little more and share this one with you (so that says plenty). Gorgeous images are a bonus in the 280-page, 7 x 0.89 x 10-inch book.
Chapters include: Introduction, Heirloom Pumpkin Guide, Nutrition Facts, Beverages, Breakfast and Brunch, Soups, Snacks, Salads and Sides, Mains, Desserts, Extras.

You may know the little Reader’s Digest magazine (I missed the bus in elementary school reading the latest “Drama in Real Life.” This is not a book for someone who wants only recipes and a more traditional cookbook. The 143-page, 8.25 x 0.75 x 10.75-inch book is short on recipes but big on everything else.
Chapters include: Signs of the Season, Costumes for Kids, Pumpkins Etc., Festive Fashions, Fun Foods, Toys and Gifts, For the Home, General Directions.
There are only six recipes in this book, BUT if you want a whole lot of Halloween fun, it’s a worthy addition. Brown Bread Pumpkins, Jack O’ Lantern Pancakes, Mini Pumpkin Sandwiches, and Halloween Cookies will get you in the Halloween spirit.

Chapters include: Introduction, Glossary, Openers, Accompaniments, Main Courses, Sweets.
Caramelized Pumpkin and Onion Soup with Smoked Turkey (yeah, that’s definitely not something you see every day), Turkey and Calabaza Pot Pies with Parmesan Crust (can sub with pumpkin or other winter squash), Pumpkin and Shitake Ravioli with Sage Butter, and Pumpkin and Chutney Kolaches are all absolutely beautiful. Add in Super Spicy Indian Pumpkin Pudding in there, too, for harvest season fun.

This title lives up to its promise. The treats inside are a little bit gross-out. In other words, this is the 32-page, 8.2 x 0.3 x 10.1-inch cookbook you want if you have or know a younger kid who wants to throw a Halloween party. Images accompany each recipe.
Chapters include: No chapters. The recipes are all listed in the beginning.
