Serving Size: 24

You can make a HUGE batch of these and become a holiday hero in minutes.

Ingredients for the Pumpkin Batter Base:

  • 1 can (15-ounce) can pumpkin puree
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup evaporated milk
  • ⅔ cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp baking soda


  1. With an electric hand mixer (or lots of muscles) mix up your pumpkin base until it's smooth.

Ingredients for the Pumpkin Batter:
  • 1 ½ cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder

  1. Now, add in the flour and baking powder to the base, and continue to mix until it's fully blended. It should be a peanut buttery consistency! Set it aside.

Ingredients for the Filling:
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • splash of milk or cream to thin it out if necessary
  • piping bag to fill them up
  • oil for frying

  1. Now, make the filling, simply by mixing the powdered sugar into the cream cheese. Add a splash of milk or cream if it's too thick to squeeze through your piping bag! Set aside.
  2. Scoop out about a tablespoon's worth of the batter and gently drop it into the hot (350 degrees) oil!
  3. Let them fully cool and drain on some paper towel.
  4. Gently poke a little hold into the puff so your pastry tip can fill it up! Fill up your piping bag or zip bag with the filling, add a decorate pastry tip and carefully fill them up.
  5. Give them a little dusting of powdered sugar, and a sweet plunge into some extra frosting just to take them over the moon.
