Around this time every year, I make a very delicious pumpkin treat for friends, family, and even just for Joey and I to enjoy as a dessert throughout the week! It’s my favorite little fall treat and is surprisingly pretty easy to make, which is a must because I’m not the biggest fan of cooking and/or baking.
With Halloween happening tomorrow, I thought I’d share it for anyone to try out during their spppooookkyyy activities tomorrow!
What you’ll need:
- 3/4 cup pumpkin puree
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 large egg (not pictured below)
- 1 can 8 count Pillsbury Grands Biscuits (I use homestyle but buttermilk will work too)
- Cream Cheese frosting- I buy the Betty Crocker Cream Cheese frosting but you could also always make your own!
How to make:
- Preheat oven to 350* and spray an 8×4 or 9×5 inch loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray.
- Stir together the 3/4 cup pumpkin puree, egg, 1/4 cup of the granulated sugar, vanilla extract, and pumpkin spice then set aside.
- Open the can of biscuits and cut each in half horizontally.
- Stir together the remaining 1/4 cup granulated sugar and the teaspoon of cinnamon in a small bowl. Then cover each half of the cut biscuits with the mixture, coating both sides of the biscuit.
- Now, using one half of the biscuits at a time, coat the top of the biscuit with the pumpkin puree mixture created earlier and stack the biscuits together layering each top with the pumpkin puree before adding the next layer. Continue to do so until you’ve run out of biscuits. I also add some of the pumpkin puree to the top of the loaf once it’s in the pan-just to give it some more pumpkin-y flavor!
- Bake for 18-30 minutes, depending on the strength of your oven. [Making this in Miami only took 20 min of oven time but when I made it here in the OC I found myself leaving the loaf in the oven for 30 min. I suggest checking on the loaf and taking it out every once in a while and pricking it with a fork to see how well the biscuits have cooked through. You don’t want them gooey but you don’t want them rock solid either.]
- Once done, remove from oven and let cool.
- Finish off by layering on the frosting before serving!
It’s so so so good and if any of you give it a try, you’ll have to let me know!
Happy Hallow’s Eve!
