'Wich of the Week: Pecan Pumpkin Cakewich

Sep 30 2009 - 2:00pm

In Autumn I welcome the arrival of all things pumpkin, whether it's pumpkin lattes at Starbucks [1], pumpkin chocolate cookies [2], or pumpkin pie [3] at Thanksgiving. So why not pumpkin sandwiches? Inspired by carrot cake with cranberries folded in, this sweet sandwich would make a great dessert or an afternoon snack with cider. Just in time for Halloween [4], you can make your own pumpkin bread [5] or use a mix from a store like Trader Joe's, which is where I found the apple-cranberry chutney. Get this comfy Fall recipe now.
