Spice it Up This Fall Season with These Amazing Recipes from Trax Farms


Fall is a wonderful time of year full of wonderful soups and stews that warm us from within. One of the most popular fall ingredients however is the simple pumpkin. There are a lot of pumpkin recipes that people make this time of year and here are a few of our favorites for you to make for your family.












Pumpkin Muffins

The mornings can be particularly difficult for people. On a nice cool morning, it can be quite difficult to tear yourself away from that warm bed, but the smell of these Pumpkin Muffins with Streusel Topping are sure to have your jumping out of the covers ready to take on the day.


2 ½ cups                      All-Purpose Flour

½ cup                           Rolled Oats

4 tsp.                           Pumpkin Spice

2 tsp.                           Baking Soda

1 tsp.                           Baking Powder

2 tsp.                           Salt

1 ½ cup                        Pumpkin

1 cup                           Brown Sugar

1 cup                           Granulated Sugar

2/3 cup                        Vegetable Oil

½ cup                           Applesauce

3                                  Large Eggs

1 tsp.                           Vanilla Extract


¼ cup                           Brown Sugar

2 tablespoons              Softened Butter

2 tablespoons              Rolled Oats

2 tablespoons              Flour


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare muffin tins with either pan spray or paper liners.
  2. Begin preparing the batter by whisking together dry ingredients. Combine the first measure of flour with the first measure of rolled oats, baking powder, baking soda, and pumpkin spice.
  3. Next, combine your wet ingredients, pumpkin puree, first measure of brown sugar, granulated sugar, applesauce, eggs, vanilla, and vegetable oil.
  4. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until just combined. Be sure to not over mix. It is fine if the mixture is lumpy.
  5. Wisk all ingredients together for the streusel topping in a separate bowl and set aside.
  6. Pour batter into prepared muffin tins and top with streusel.
  7. Bake muffins for approximately 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  8. The first step in the process calls for you to sweat the shallots in oil. Heat the oil for a few minutes and add the shallots until soft. The process should take about 10 minutes.
  9. Melt the butter into the shallots while whisking and add heavy cream, salt and cinnamon. Continually whisk and cook for approximately 2 minutes.
  10. Next, add in the pumpkin puree along with the chicken broth. Bring to a simmer and cook for around 7 minutes or until the consistency desired is reached.
  11. Finally, add in the thyme and sage and pour over any pasta you desire.
  12. Preheat oven to 325 degrees
  13. Combine cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla in a large bowl until smooth.
  14. Beat in eggs one at a time and take out one cup of the batter once all is combined and spread into prepared crust.
  15. Add pumpkin puree, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg to the remaining batter and spread over batter that is already in the crust.
  16. Bake for approximately 35 minutes until the filling is just set. Allow the cheesecake to completely cool to room temperature and then refrigerator. Serve with whipped topping and enjoy.
