Apple orchards are open, leaves have begun to turn and, perhaps most importantly, Pumpkin Spice Lattes are back at your favorite coffee shop — fall is officially in session. While you may indeed crave the piping-hot comfort of a fragrant PSL, there are more ways to indulge in that seasonal flavor than in a cup of joe. On this morning's all-new episode of The Kitchen, the co-hosts showed off a simple way to create your own rich, boldly flavored Pumpkin Spice Latte Base, which you can use to transform whipped cream, oatmeal and more into autumnal dishes.

If you can mix up a few ingredients, you're well on your way to prepping this five-minute recipe. Start with a can of smooth pumpkin puree, then sweeten it up with brown sugar and mix in flavorful additions, including, of course, the requisite pumpkin pie spice. This fuss-free combo will keep for up to two weeks in the refrigerator; it's a grab-and-use way to boost the taste of your favorite plates. To start, try it in Pumpkin Spice Latte Sweet Dip with creamy ricotta for a next-level dessert.
