Tis the season for all things pumpkin and today these Pumpkin Spice Cream Puffs are going to be the perfect dessert on your Thanksgiving Holiday tables.

I used my mom's cream puff dough recipe and have made several fillings over the years but this holiday special pumpkin cream delight supersedes everyone's first dessert even over that slice of Pumpkin Pie.

Whipped heavy cream, with pumpkin puree and a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar on top, remains a family's favorite dessert all pumpkin and holiday season.

Perfect with a Pumpkin Spice Frappe or Pumpkin Latte and they can be piped for mini puffs or full large cream puffs.

We are big pumpkin fans and although we love these cream puffs we still make Pumpkin Cake, Pumpkin Cream Cheese RollPumpkin Cake Mix Cookies, and Pumpkin Bread.

This one pastry dough will be all you need to entertain guests for an elegant dessert table or an assortment of filled appetizers.

This versatile French delicate pastry dough is also one of the easiest to make and can be made in various shapes and sizes.
