McDonald's is now serving pumpkin turnovers at select locations this fall. While pumpkin-flavored treats have become synonymous with fall, the ingredient is often found in muffins and pies. These tasty turnovers offer a unique way to enjoy the seasonal ingredient.

The new Pumpkin and Creme Pies are similar to the Strawberry and Creme Pies offered this past spring. The inside of the pastry is stuffed with a pumpkin pie filling on one side and a sweet creme filling on the other side. The exterior is made from a flaky baked pastry crust. The bite-sized pastries provide a unique way to enjoy the seasonal ingredient. The dish is also designed to pair with the Pumpkin Spice Latte offered at select McDonald's locations this fall.

The new pumpkin turnovers demonstrate one of the unique ways fast food restaurants are incorporating pumpkin into seasonal menus.
