Le Creuset Pumpkin Cocotte Recipes and a Giveaway

Beet Soup with Beet Green Pesto

The fun pieces from Le Creuset just keep coming. Hearts, flowers, and now pumpkins? LC, you slay me. What’s next? Kitty cat cocottes? (That would make my day!)

Despite the fact that we were stewing and spicing and pumpkining it up in mid-May, we absolutely loved developing these autumnal recipes for Le Creuset. Doesn’t this Beet Soup with Beet Green Pesto just make you want to start caroling? And don’t get me started on the fried crispy capers and pumpkin seeds that get sprinkled on top of those Pumpkin Shrimp & Grits.

Pumpkin Shrimp & Grits with Fried Pumpkin Seeds and Capers

Pumpkin grits, people.

Seeded Sorghum Dinner Rolls

Thinking outside the pumpkin, and proving that these pans aren’t just for soups and sautées, these Seeded Sorghum Dinner Rolls are little baked balls of fluffy, doughy bliss. Turns out you CAN bake bready things in these adorable pots. Also, sorghum? Like honey and molasses had a summer fling. Sweet and sassy at the same time.

Spiced Deep-Dish Chocolate Chip Cookies

Even better than pumpkins are petite pumpkins, and the more the merrier. You won’t have to share your cookies with these single serving Spiced Deep-Dish Chocolate Chip Cookies (well, they’re really more suitable for two, but no one, especially not me, is forcing you to share if you don’t want to).

Le Creuset Pumpkin Cocotte Giveaway

Just call me Cinderella, because I’m giving away pumpkins (that is how it goes, right?) To celebrate (now that it is officially) fall, Le Creuset® is offering up a gourd-eous set of pumpkins, including one large Pumpkin Cocotte and two matching Petite Pumpkin Cocottes in the color of your choice (Flame, Dune, or Truffle). That’s a $240 set of gourds right there.

So, what are you waiting for? Click through to enter this fantastic giveaway!

Giveaway is now closed, thanks for entering!

    I’m hosting Thanksgiving this year for my family (for the first time ever!!) so I would LOVE to have these for my table. But before that I’d probably try a Baked Pumpkin Pasta or a Bourbon Pumpkin Bread Pudding – YUM!! These are so adorable! I saw them recently at Williams-Sonoma and was lusting hard over them! :)

    I’d love to start a casual fall dinner party for four serving an amazing, chunky salmon and corn chowder from the large cocotte, which would be covered on the table as a centerpiece. Then, voila! I’d lift the lid and use the smaller ones as individual serving bowls; I think that the rosy orange and golden colors would play so well off the autumnal colors of the cocottes!
