Our Disclaimer (The serious stuff)

By using our free meal planner (and the rest of spoonacular.com) you have to agree that you and only you are responsible for anything that happens to you because of something you have read on this site or have bought/cooked/eaten because of this site. After all, the only person who controls what you put in your mouth is you, right?

Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research. If you need help planning your diet or determining which foods (and recipes) are safe for you, contact a registered dietitian, allergist, or another medical professional.

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 F and either lightly grease your cookie sheet or line it with something like parchment paper or foil.
  2. Beat together the pumpkin and butter until it is completely smooth.
  3. Add the cake mix, eggs and milk. Mix those together for a minute or so.
  4. Drop the batter by rounded tablespoons on to the cookie sheets.
  5. Bake for about 15 minutes or until the bottoms are starting to brown and they are golden on top.
  6. While the pumpkin cookies are cooling make your desired filling - I used a spiced cream cheese.
  7. To assemble, take one of the cookies, spread a huge layer of filling on it, and top with another cookie.
  8. Enjoy!

Tips

Health Tips

  • If you can, choose grassfed butter for a better nutritional profile—more vitamins, a favorable omega 3/6 ratio, etc.

  • If you're following a gluten-free diet, be sure to find a gluten-free brand of cake mix.

  • Studies have shown people who drink full fat milk are thinner than those who drink low-fat or fat-free milk instead. Keep that in mind before you decide to swap. If you want to go dairy free, however, you can replace milk with unsweetened soy milk in most recipes.

Price Tips

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

Cooking Tips

  • Butter's incredible flavor has made it an extremely popular cooking fat, but it is important to know that butter has the lowest smoke point of almost any cooking fat. This means butter literally starts to smoke at a lower temperature than most other fats between 250-350 degrees Fahrenheit. So while butter is great for cooking at lower temperatures, you should probably use canola oil, coconut oil, or another oil with a higher smoke point for frying and other high temperature cooking.

Green Tips

  • To avoid antibiotics, hormones, and other nasties in your milk, choose organic whenever possible. If you can't afford organic, look for milk labeled hormone and antibiotic free. It is often less expensive.
