Pumpkin Spice Sandwich Cookies

The leaves are changing colors, the air is getting cool, and we are just heading into my favorite time of the year.  I love fall.  It is absolutely, hands down the best time of the year for me.  School is back in session and the holidays are upon us.  Fall seems to be the most creative time for me.  It's when I want to spend more time indoors and bake every chance I get. 

This weekend I've been craving pumpkin.  Something sweet, something easy, and something kind of new.  So I came across some pumpkin spice muffin mix while grocery shopping and I figured I could easily turn it into cookies.  Yes - muffin mix = cookies.  We made them this afternoon and handed them out to our amazing neighbors who helped me for hours in the rain yesterday so my house didn't flood (scary).  I've already heard great reviews.  Hope you all enjoy them too.

Pumpkin Spice Sandwich Cookies

2 boxes Pumpkin Spice Muffin Mix (I used Krusteaz brand)
3 eggs
1 c shortening

Mix together well, then roll dough into 1 inch balls and bake on non-greased cookie sheet for 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees.  While your cookies are cooling down, make your frosting.

1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, room temp.
1/4 c butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla
3 1/2 - 4 c powdered sugar.

Mix all ingredients.  You can add more or less powdered sugar if needed.

Put frosting on inside of cookie #1, press cookie #2 on top of cookie #1 to form a sandwich.
