Pumpkin Cream Sandwiches
From: Real Simple November 2007
|They look like min-hamburgers, don't they?|
3 Tbsp unsalted butter; room temperature
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/4 tsp salt
2/3 cup cream cheese; room temperature
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
Heat over to 350 degrees
Beat the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar in an electric mixer until smooth. Add the pumpkin, vanilla, and egg and beat until combined.
Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice, and salt in a medium bowl. Slowly add the flour mixture to the sugar/butter mixture and beat on medium-low speed until fully Incorporated.
Spoon heaping tablespoons of the mixture 2 inches apart (about 9 on a pan) onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake until puffed and cooked through, about 10 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes.
Clean the mixer, as the cookies bake, and beat the cream cheese, heavy cream, and confectioners' sugar until smooth and spreadable.
Spread the flat sides of the half cooled cookies with the cream and top with the remaining cookies.
*Jenny note: I use apple pie spice because that's all I had, no complaints here. Secondly, I used a cookie scooper to make the cookies and they came out a little more perfect and less organic then if I used just a regular spoon. Just so you know. Lastly, I dusted mine with powdered sugar for looks.*
Makes 12 cookie sandwiches.
