These are a wonderful little treat to enjoy this time of year when pumpkin is on our mind. For breakfast, brunch or snack they are just the right amount of pumpkin and spice.
Need a quick dessert idea? Cut it in half and fill it with some berries and cream or make an ice cream sandwich with some vanilla ice cream in the middle! Happy Weekend!
