If you gauge the dawn of fall by when your first pumpkin spice latte of the season is sipped, there aren't any limits your pumpkin spice intake. Amidst trips to the pumpkin patch, carving contests and all your other pumpkin-centric fall activities, these  sweet pumpkin recipes should be on tap all season long:

1. You've never seen another pumpkin pie with looks this good. Gingersnap Pumpkin Pie with Ginger Cream (pictured above) receives a deeper sweetness from a just-ripe banana and an extra notch of spice from the cookies. Word to the wise: Don't be stingy with the whipped cream.

2. The perks to a batch of Spiced Pumpkin-Raisin Cookies don't stop with all that pumpkin spice goodness. These seriously moist treats come without eggs, making them vegan friendly.

3. Coming with golden raisins, crystallized ginger and light brown sugar, a scoop of Anne Burrell's Pumpkin-Ginger Bread Pudding for Food Network Magazine is full of texture.

4. Sunny Anderson swaps the standard slice of pumpkin pie for  Mini Pecan Pumpkin Pies. Think of them as a cross between pumpkin and pecan pies, devoured in just one extra-special bite.

5. Roll up all of the flavors of fall in Trisha Yearwood's Pumpkin Roll, coming with a luxurious helping of cream cheese frosting.

6. A roundup of pumpkin recipes couldn't possibly be complete without a killer classic pumpkin pie. Bobby Flay's Throwdown Pumpkin Pie is a real winner, especially with a homemade graham cracker crust.
