Battle for the Best Fall Flavor

Which flavor will win-pumpkin or pecan?

Picture yourself in this scenario—you're at a holiday shindig surrounded by family and friends. You've just eaten a terrific meal, and you're ready for dessert. You could have a slice of that delicious Pumpkin Cake or that creamy Pumpkin Cheesecake. Or, you could have a slice of either the Pecan Pie or Fudge Pecan Pie. It's the classic question, "Which fall flavor is better-pumpkin or pecan?" However you choose, you'll end up with a slice of something delicious. But the choice feels so dang tricky.

Not to worry! Collin Street Bakery is here to help with what may be an endless black hole of dessert indecisiveness. We've written down the best points of each flavor to help you navigate this sticky situation.

Pumpkin Cake 

Our Pumpkin Cake is fit for a President! In fact, our mouthwateringly moist and aromatic pumpkin cake has graced the White House’s holiday table almost every year. First crafted over twenty-five years ago by Chef Roland Mesnier, the Head Pastry Chef at the U.S. White House, this cake combines bold pumpkin puree and traditional holiday spices. Accompanied by a half-pint of velvety, pumpkin-cream cheese icing, a slice of this moist cake is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser. 


Pecan Pie

If you are searching for the perfect pie, we’ve got you covered with this classic our Pecan Pie. We layer rich, nutty pecans atop a base of silky, caramel-like custard made with whole eggs and brown sugar. Baked inside a light, flaky crust till golden brown, a slice of this pie is best enjoyed à la carte or accompanied by a scoop of vanilla ice cream. A delightful combination of crunchy and smooth textures, just one bite of this pie will have you wanting more.


Pumpkin Cheesecake

Our Pumpkin Cheesecake is a cool weather adaptation on a sweet summer treat. It all starts when we combine creamy pumpkin puree with traditional holiday spices into our classic cheesecake filling. Made with real dairy butter, rich cream, and whole eggs and sweetened with honey, our filling is then hand-poured atop our homemade-style graham cracker crust. Baked till set and beautifully golden brown, one bite of this cake will have everyone saying thanks for the arrival of sweater weather.


Fudge Pecan Pie

Can’t decide between a slice of fudge pie and a slice of pecan pie? Our Deep Dish Fudge Pecan Pie is the perfect compromise. This dessert hybrid is certain to catch everyone’s attention. Made with whole eggs and rich cocoa butter, we layer toasted pecans atop a base of silky, fudge custard. Baked inside a light, flaky crust till golden brown, this pie indulges both chocolate and nut lovers.


Have you been able to determine which dessert wins the title of "Best Fall Flavor?" Well, the great news is, you don't have to decide! You can pick both flavors as your favorite because you are the master of your dessert decisions.
