  • 0.25 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 0.67 cup all purpose flour

pumpkin batter

  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1.5 cup flour
  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.

filling

  • piping bag to fill them up
  • splash of milk or cream to thin it out if necessary
  • 0.5 cup powdered sugar
  • 8 Ounce cream cheese
  • 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.
