Cinnamon toast, but make it pumpkin! This fun twist on the classic will have you reliving your childhood in a fun, fall way!
Who else had cinnamon toast all the time as a kid?! My mom would make it for us, and then when we were a bit older, we made it for ourselves. It's probably the first thing I learned how to cook since it's so easy!

Will it pumpkin spice?
You know those videos where people put different foods into a waffle iron and ask, "will it waffle?" well thats how I approached this recipe. Will it pumpkin spice? Yes! This recipe was easy to give the pumpkin spice makeover to. You will only need a few extra ingredients and swaps and it literally ends up tasting like pumpkin pie! So good.
What are the ingredients?
Sliced brioche bread: I love brioche for cinnamon toast because of it's fluffiness and slight sweetness. It's perfect for this recipe!
Unsalted butter: I like unsalted butter instead of salted butter for this recipe so that you can be in better control of the salt! A pinch of kosher salt is all you'll need to counteract the sugar and brioche.
Pumpkin Puree: You gotta have a little pumpkin in your pumpkin spice toast! Grab the pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie filling.
Sugar: Granulated sugar, not powdered.
Pumpkin Spice: Of course! You can find pumpkin pie spice at any grocery store nowadays.
Kosher Salt: Just a pinch!
Plain old white bread will do just fine! You want something light and fluffy.
You can...but I hope you don't! The pumpkin adds a nice creaminess and a very subtle flavor. If you really don't want to add it, you can leave it out.
