Fall is in full swing and it's a great time to enjoy warm foods and the company of your sorority sisters. A great way to spice up some time together is by making a homemade, delicious pumpkin-inspired dish. Here are some of my favorite (and easy to make!) pumpkin dishes for the fall.

PUMPKIN SUGAR COOKIES If you want an easy pumpkin-inspired desert but aren't a fan of pies, this pumpkin sugar cookie is the way to go. With or without the cinnamon cream cheese icing they're sure to be delicious. Cooking Classy has created a great pumpkin sugar cookie recipe, including the recipe for the icing.
PUMPKIN HOT CHOCOLATE A friend once made pumpkin hot chocolate and from then I was completely hooked.
