I love baking. As you can tell, I post more dessert recipes on this blog than mains, soups and side dishes. Part of it is that I’m a better baker than I am chef. The other part is that they are just so darn pretty.

I have been on a huge pumpkin kick this past month. Since Claudia’s famous pumpkin pie has already been featured, that leaves me to find other pumpkin-related desserts that can compete.  I think I found a serious contender. This recipe was adapted from a recipe posted by The Deutsch Girl on the Tasty Kitchen website. These sandwich cookies are super simple to make and absolutely delicious. The perfect mix of warm spices and sweet cream cheese. They also freeze extremely well, which is good if you can’t manage to finish all 24 cookies this recipe makes!
