1
cup canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
1/2
cup butter, softened
1/4
cup milk
1
egg
1
teaspoon Betty Crocker® orange gel food color
Filling

cup butter or margarine, softened
4
oz (half of 8-oz package) cream cheese, softened
1 1/2
cups powdered sugar

  1. Heat oven to 375°F. Spray cookie sheets with cooking spray. In large bowl, beat cookie ingredients with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Using (2 tablespoon-size) ice cream scoop, drop batter 2 inches apart onto cookie sheets. With damp hands, gently smooth out dough.
  2. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until set. Cool 5 minutes; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.
  3. In medium bowl, beat 1/4 cup butter and the cream cheese with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Gradually add powdered sugar; beat until blended. Stir in maple extract.
  4. For each pie, spread about 1 generous tablespoon filling on bottom of 1 cooled cookie. Top with second cookie, bottom side down; gently press cookies together.
  5. Using black decorating icing, pipe jack-o’-lantern faces. Using green decorating icing, pipe jack-o’-lantern stems on tops of pies.
