Servings 16
Author Morgan


  • 4 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup cold unsalted butter cut into pats
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/3 cup pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup milk


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl mix flour, sugar, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, ground cinnamon, baking soda and salt together. Then with a pastry cutter, cut butter pats into batter until mixture resembles course crumbs.
  3. In a medium bowl whisk the eggs, pumpkin and milk together.
  4. Now combine wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until moist, don't overwork.
  5. On a floured surface, take dough and knead 10-15 times.
  6. Then divide the dough into two equal halves. With a roller, roll each half into a circle that is roughly an inch thick (my circles were about 8-10 inches in diameter). Then cut into eighths (just like you would cut a pizza) with either a pizza cutter or pastry scraper.
  7. Place on an ungreased baking sheet or on a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat (this is what I did).
  8. Bake for 13-15 minutes or until golden.
  9. Remove and immediately place on cooling racks.
  10. Once cool, drizzle melted chocolate or warm Nutella on the tops and enjoy!
