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.

Drunken Pumpkin Ice Cream at Penny Lick

580 Warburton Ave, Hastings-on-Hudson; 914.525.1580

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 Cheesecake Frozen Custard at Mikey Dubb’s

1282 North Ave, New Rochelle; 914.999.4488

It’s a seasonal favorite, but it doesn’t stick around long, so get it while you can. Rich, thick custard comes flavored with puréed pumpkin and house-made graham cracker crust pieces.

Pumpkin Donuts from Baked by Susan

163 Grand St, 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 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.

Pumpkin Olive Oil Loaf from Baked With Love By Abigail

Culinary school grad Abigail Friedman runs a pretty serious micro-bakery from her home kitchen in Mamaroneck, and she’s a regular fixture at the Larchmont and Rye Farmers’ Markets with her outstanding babkas and seasonal pumpkin-infused surprises. A not-to-miss is her pumpkin olive oil loaf, spiced and sweet with a maple-ginger glaze, plus pumpkin seeds for a crunchy kick. Need even more crunch? Don’t pass up Abigail’s pumpkin spice biscotti, and don’t say we never gave you nothin’.

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-oriented 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 butterscotch blondies folded in. Then there’s a vegan option with the fall twist on cookies & cream — pumpkin spice cookies & cream. This one is also perfect for those who always need some chocolate to satisfy their sweet tooth.
