Pilgrim Pies




Filling/Cream Cheese Frosting



  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Beat eggs, brown sugar, oil and vanilla extract in a mixing bowl until smooth.
  3. Stir in the pumpkin.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  5. Add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture a half cup at a time, blending each time until smooth.
  6. Drop by heaping tablespoon onto an ungreased cookie sheet, using a moist finger or the back of a spoon to slightly flatten each mound. Make only 9 on the cookie sheet.
  7. Bake the cookies for 12 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  8. Meanwhile, make the frosting. Beat together the cream cheese, butter, and vanilla extract in a bowl until light and fluffy.
  9. Mix in the confectioners' sugar, 1/2 cup at a time, until the frosting is spreadable. You may not need to use the entire 3 1/2 cups.
  10. Turn half the cookies upside down and spread with a generous amount of cream cheese frosting.
  11. Top with another cookie right side up.

Yield: 10-14 Pilgrim Pies
