There’s something about crisp air and leaves turning that immediately makes me crave pumpkin. Whether it’s pumpkin latte’s or pumpkin cookies, I love it. Now, imagine my glee when I heard that Kahlúa was releasing a new Pumpkin Spice Kahlúa flavor? It lives up to its name and offers everything you love from the combination of pumpkin and spice.
Pumpkin pie happens to be one of my fall loves as well and I knew I wanted to incorporate it into this drink recipe. This is a really simple recipe using ground cinnamon flavored graham crackers for the “crust”.
With all of that said, it’s really hard to believe that fall is upon us. I hope I’m not alone in the thinking that summer flew by this year. I feel like I blinked and POOF, it was gone.
To get myself into the fall spirit I have started planning my Thanksgiving dinner menu. It’s the one day of the year that I pull out all of the stops and I love every bit of planning it. I know one thing for sure, and that’s that these Pumpkin Pietini’s will be on the menu. They are not too sweet and are incredibly delicious.
