There are many reasons why we love autumn, and one of them is definitely the ripening of our favorite fruits. Among the main symbols of autumn, the pumpkin stands out, a delicious fruit that pairs perfectly with both sweet and savory dishes. Pumpkin is one of those gifts of nature in the fall that not only captivates with its rich taste, but also offers numerous health benefits — it's a source of fiber, vitamins A, C, and E, potassium, and manganese, rich in antioxidants, and helps maintain a healthy body weight. So, stock up on pumpkins and celebrate this autumn with its rich flavors. Below, we present several excellent recipes. And if you haven't already considered pumpkin dishes, we'll tell you just one thing — some of them can be enhanced with Prima sticks!

Pumpkin Cheesecake with Prima Sticks and Caramel Sauce
To prepare this delicious cheesecake, crumble Prima sticks and mix them with melted butter. Press the mixture onto the bottom of a cake pan to create the crust. Then, prepare a mixture of cream cheese, pumpkin, sugar, eggs, vanilla sugar, and cinnamon. Pour this mixture over the crust and bake the cake in a preheated oven for 10-15 minutes. After baking, allow the cheesecake to cool, then drizzle it with caramel sauce and decorate it with Prima sticks. Enjoy!
Pumpkin Pie with Whipped Cream
To bake this delicious pie, first prepare or use pre-made puff pastry. Roll out half of the dough and place it in a pie dish. Beat eggs with sugar, add pumpkin puree, heavy cream, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt. Mix the mixture well and pour it over the dough in the dish. Then, cover the mixture with the other half of the puff pastry, shape the edges, and create a few vents on top. Bake the pie in a preheated oven until it turns golden. After baking, let it cool for a few minutes before serving with a generous layer of whipped cream — a delicious ending to every bite.
