5 Metro Phoenix Pumpkin Treats To Try Before You Get Pumpkin-ed Out

By the middle of September each year, our foodie hearts turn toward root vegetables, nutmeg and, of course, pumpkins. Pretty soon the gourd will plague every restaurant, bakery and café menu in town. By the time November rolls around, we'll surely be pushing the pumpkin pie out of the way due to pumpkin exhaustion, but, until then, we have five treats made locally that you have to have before the pumpkin burn out sets in.
