We all have a bit of a laugh around this time of the year as just about every food offering takes on a Pumpkin Spice-flavored dimension. Everything from lattes to licorice gets a dash of ginger and cinnamon, but the real truth is that the Pumpkin Spice craze started because we all secretly want more fall-flavored treats.
Something about our palate seems to change when the leaves go from green to gold and the air starts to turn crisp, so let’s not make fun of it, let’s lean into it! Here are a few of our favorite recipes that you can have on hand to help say goodbye to summer and hello to sweaters.
You can get sweet potatoes in the store all year long, but they never seem more appropriate on the dinner table than in the autumn. Our first recipe is quick and easy, but it’s sure to add a new dimension to your table. Preserve-coated macaroons add just the perfect bit of sweet and crunch to your yams. Don’t limit this one to just the holidays!
Thanksgiving is coming, and everybody needs to have a solid sweet potato recipe. If this dish is a hit, then it’s a shoo-in for a repeat performance around Christmas. It combines the deep flavor of baked sweet potatoes with the creamy richness of egg nog. This recipe is all about the holidays, and we think it’s bound to become an annual favorite at your house.
Did you think we’d do a blog post that didn’t include ice cream? Sometimes, your ice cream needs a bit more love than just being scooped into a bowl, and this recipe creates something pretty impressive. It takes a bit of prep work, but when it’s over you’ll have them ooh-ing and aah-ing and asking for seconds. This recipe uses our Butter Pecan and Pumpkin ice creams, but there’s no reason you can’t switch it up if there’s a combination that really gets your imagination going.
The holidays just aren’t the holidays without cookies, and in classic Braum’s fashion, we’ve got fresh-baked cookies accented with plenty of Braum’s ice cream. The beauty of this recipe is that once you get a feel for making your own ice cream sandwiches you can mix and match the ingredients to suit the holiday at hand. No matter which recipe you use, you can get everything you need at your nearest Braum’s store. This one works year-round!
Stop by any Braum’s Fresh Market location and stock up on all the things you need to set a festive table! Our seasonal flavors are in stock and we’ll be sure to have plenty to get you through the holidays.
