🎃Mummy Pumpkin Cookies🎃-spooky, cute and delicious treat, perfect for #halloween party!!! #recipe at : https://omgchocolatedesserts.com/mummy-pumpkin-cookies/
For the Crust :
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter cut into cubes-chilled
2 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
4 Tablespoons ice water (or you can use 1 package Refrigerated Pie Crust )
3/4 cup reduced pumpkin puree (place 1 cup pumpkin puree on several layers of paper towel, wrap and press to soak excess moisture until you get 3/4 cup pumpkin puree)
2 oz cream cheese -slightly softened
2 tablespoons packed light-brown sugar
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon allspice
1 egg yolk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg white-lightly beaten
1/2 tablespoon water
2 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
To make the pumpkin pie filling in a bowl stir together cream cheese, granulated sugar and brown sugar to blend. Add reduced pumpkin puree to cream cheese mixture along with cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and allspice. Mix in egg yolk and vanilla extract. Cover bowl and chill until ready to assemble the cookies.
Preheat oven to 375 F and line large baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside.
Roll out first disk of the dough onto a floured surface to about 13 x 11-inch rectangle . Trim edges to get straight edges, then cut into rectangles( I made nine 4×3 rectangles, but you can make them smaller or larger, what ever you prefer) Roll out second dough disc and cut into 1/2 inch stripes.
Arrange the rectangles, spaced apart on prepared baking sheet and spread heaping 1 1/2-2 tablespoons of pumpkin pie filling onto each rectangle, leaving rim on all sides uncoated. Brush uncoated edges with the mixture of lightly beaten egg white and 1 Tbsp water. Top with strips to create mummy look, then seal edges with your fingertips, and trim the excess of the stripes. Brush the stripes with egg whites and sprinkle with mixture of 2 Tbsp sugar and 1 tsp. cinnamon.
Bake until golden brown about 20 minutes.
Stick candy eyes onto cooled mummies.
