Recipe // Pumpkin Pie Coffee

Pumpkin Pie is one of my favorite things about fall. I could eat a whole pie by myself. In one sitting. After Thanksgiving I'll eat the left over pie for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It's kind of a problem. A delicious problem.

I love pumpkin flavors. I'll eat pumpkin anything. Well, I wouldn't eat a pumpkin candle. That would be weird. But pumpkin

cookies

or

popcorn

, hand it over. So naturally, pumpkin coffee is a must. When dreaming of pumpkin flavored coffee, I didn't want to use pumpkin syrup or some sort of pumpkin creamer, that just doesn't taste like

real

 pumpkin. Enter my recipe for Pumpkin Pie Coffee.
