My husband says this granola with pumpkin and spices tastes like a bite of real pumpkin pie, and it’s a whole lot quicker to make. —Sarah Ozimek, Oconomowoc, Wisconsin

    I made a half-recipe but should have made the full amount. It's really good to snack on and with yogurt. I made it with pepitas and pecans, also just used my homemade pumpkin spice combo to equal the amount of called-for spices. Had to bake a little longer than suggested to get it crisp enough for my taste. Next time I'll probably mix in some dried cranberries or cherries after it's done baking. Addictive!
