These pie-like cookie spirals are a pretty way to bring pumpkin flavor to dessert any time of the year.—Kathy Yarosh, Apopka, Florida
Total TimePrep: 45 min. + chilling Bake: 20 min./batch + cooling
- 1-1/2 cups solid-pack pumpkin
- 1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut
- 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
- 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1 package (11 ounces) pie crust mix
- 1/2 cup cream cheese frosting
- 1 to 2 teaspoons 2% milk
- In a small bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Prepare pie crust mix according to package directions; divide dough in half.
- Roll each portion into a 14x8-in. rectangle on lightly floured pieces of waxed paper. Spread half of pumpkin mixture over one rectangle to within 1/4 in. of edges. Roll up tightly jelly-roll style, starting with a long side. Wrap in waxed paper. Repeat with remaining dough. Freeze 30 minutes or until firm.
- Preheat oven to 400°. Using a sharp serrated knife, trim ends and cut dough crosswise into 1/4-in. slices. Place 1 in. apart on parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Bake 18-22 minutes or until light golden. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
- In a small bowl, combine frosting and enough milk to reach a drizzling consistency. Drizzle over pinwheels; let stand until set. Store between pieces of waxed paper in airtight containers.
Freeze option: Place wrapped logs in a resealable plastic freezer bag; return to freezer. To use, unwrap frozen logs and cut into slices. If necessary, let dough stand 15 minutes at room temperature before cutting. Bake as directed, increasing time by 2-4 minutes.
