If you're anything like me, you've noticed the cornucopia of pumpkin-flavored foods and beverages this autumn. Yes, it's true, we're all suckers for our pumpkin flavored coffee, scones, pancakes, cookies, etc. and with this quick and simple recipe, you can add a little of your own fall flavor to whatever you like.

-Frosting for baked goods
-Roasted sweet potatoes and/or squash - a great mix of savory and sweet.
