Why stop at a pumpkin spice latte when you can pair it with ice cream, donuts, and even ravioli in Westchester County?

Pumpkin Ice Cream at The Blue Pig

121 Maple St, Croton-on-Hudson; 914.271.3850

We scream for ice cream — yes we do, even in the middle of fall. This time of year, The Blue Pig unveils a hot new take on pumpkin-flavored ice cream, and this fall it’s Fresh Creamy Pumpkin, which gets its spice from fresh-ground nutmeg.

It’s a seasonal favorite and it’s back again with a creamy pumpkin base and just a hint of bourbon. Aside from being peanut- and tree nut-free — a la every scoop in the shop —  this one is also gluten-free.

Pumpkin Patch Granola from Blissful Table

Farmers’ markets and pop-ups

All-natural, small-batch, handspun granola (that regularly sells out at pop-ups and farmers’ markets in Larchmont, Rye, and NYC) is a family affair at this White Plains’ home-based business, and crisp weather brings about fresh batches of warm and spicy Pumpkin Patch granola featuring locally sourced rolled oats, pecans, pepitas, and ginger scented with pie spice.

Pumpkin Donuts from Baked by Susan

379 S Riverside Ave, Croton-on-Hudson; 914.862.0874

While Susan O’Keefe’s pumpkin pie is a crowd favorite, her pumpkin sugar donuts are an addictive alternative. Made with pumpkin, bananas, sugar, butter, cinnamon, and nutmeg, these autumnal orbs can also be ordered as a bite-sized treat for special events and for Thanksgiving and gatherings. Check out the host of other pumpkin-flavored desserts, like muffins and breads.

Pumpkin Scones from Mrs. Larkin

Known on the ‘gram as Scone Lady Larkin, Liz Larkin has been turning out superior scones for the past decade, selling them at farmers’ markets, Northern Westchester shops, and by special order. We wait all year for her seasonal pumpkin-flavored scone.

Pumpkin Streusel Bread from Cathy’s Biscotti

Cathy Schauber began baking biscotti (and selling it wholesale) close to two decades ago in celebration of her proud Italian heritage, earning her a spot on the shelves of Wegman’s and about 30 coffee shops and stores in the 914. For the past two years plus, she’s been baking in her home, offering just about anything on request, including cakes, pies, cookies, cupcakes, and her to-die-for pumpkin bread with a streusel top.

Ravioli Zucca at tredici NORTH and tredici SOCIAL

104 Kraft Ave, Bronxville; 914.793.1313

On the menu at both of chef/owner Giuseppe Fanelli’s celebrated tredicis, these ravioli are a savory alternative to the standard pumpkin-flavored drinks and sweets. Filled with homemade burrata and pumpkin cream, they’re tossed in browned butter and sage. Crumbles of amaretti cookies add a crunchy texture.

Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream at Bona Bona

10 Westchester Avenue, Port Chester; 914.481.5712

Bona Bona has two seasonal flavors that aren’t just the usual pumpkin spice ice cream. First up is the pumpkin spice with white-chocolate blondies folded in. Then there’s a vegan option with the fall twist on cookies and cream — pumpkin spice cookies and cream. This one is also perfect for those who always need some chocolate to satisfy their sweet tooth. Speaking of, consider another house specialty: a pumpkin blondie with dark chocolate mousse on top.
