Recipe For Pumpkin Bread Sandwich With Pecans and Cream Cheese For Halloween

'Wich of the Week: Pecan Pumpkin Cakewich

In Autumn I welcome the arrival of all things pumpkin, whether it's pumpkin lattes at Starbucks, pumpkin chocolate cookies, or pumpkin pie 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, you can make your own pumpkin bread 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.

Yum! I'm a total sucker for Fall flavors. It kind of reminds me of a deconstructed carrot cake with the shredded carrots, nuts, and cream cheese.

I don't know about the shredded carrot - did it play nice with the other ingredients? Other than that, it sounds delicious.
