Pumpkin thumbprints

30 Nov

So far, I’ve done vanilla thumbprints (three ways) and chocolate thumbprints (two ways), so it only seems fitting to add pumpkin thumbprints (just the one way).

Warning: these will disappear pretty quickly.

Pumpkin Thumbprints 

1 cup flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp allspice

1/2 tsp ginger

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1/4 tsp cloves

1/2 cup light brown sugar

1/2 cup pumpkin puree

1/3 cup vegetable oil

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla extract

4 oz cream cheese, room temperature

2 tablespoons butter, softened

1 cup powdered sugar

Cinnamon for sprinkling

1) Preheat the oven to 375

2) Mix brown sugar, pumpkin, vegetable oil, and vanilla in a mixer. Once combined, add in egg and mix.

3) In a separate bowl, combine all dry ingredients (except powdered sugar!) Mix into the wet ingredients.

4) Roll out cookies (I used a melon baller for consistency) and cook for 6 minutes. Pull out of oven, and indent each cookie with the back of a teaspoon (or coffee scoop).

5) Cook for an additional 6 minutes, then let cool completely.

6) Mix the cream cheese, butter, and powdered sugar, then pipe into the center of each cookie and sprinkle with cinnamon.
