The Sweet Side of Squash: 10 Dessert Recipes

Today caps off a wonderful week featuring fall vegetables on The Kitchn. And a very fitting end to that week would be a turn to the sweet side of one of our favorite fall vegetables: squash.

We're excited about this line-up of fall sweets because it moves beyond just your run-of-the-mill pumpkin pie or pumpkin ice cream into terrain cloaked with nutmeg sauce, maple cream cheese frosting and brown sugar cream. So now that you've found your inspiration for dinner recipes featuring fall vegetables, it's time to think about a new seasonal dessert you just can't wait to try. We have a feeling you'll find something here.
