  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 36 regular-size muffin cups with cooking spray. Make cookie dough as directed on pouch. Using rounded teaspoon of dough, shape dough into 1 1/4-inch balls. Press dough evenly into bottom of each muffin cup and slightly up sides.
  2. In medium bowl, stir Pumpkin Filling ingredients with whisk until blended. Spoon rounded teaspoonful of mixture into each dough-filled muffin cup; spread slightly.
  3. Bake 8 to 12 minutes or until edges are light golden brown and filling appears set (cookies and filling will be soft). Cool 10 minutes in pan; carefully remove to cooling rack.
  4. Fill small resealable food-storage plastic bag with frosting. Cut off small corner of bag; squeeze small dollop of frosting onto each cookie. Sprinkle lightly with additional pumpkin pie spice, if desired. Refrigerate cookies in covered container or resealable food-storage plastic bag.

Recipe Tips

  • If you don’t have 3 muffin pans, cover and refrigerate filling and cover cookie dough until placed in muffin pan. You can roll the balls of dough ahead; cover with plastic wrap to prevent dough from drying out.
  • If using 21-oz pouch of Betty Crocker™ sugar cookie mix, make cookie dough as directed on pouch. For pumpkin filling, use 5 oz cream cheese, 2/3 cup canned pumpkin, 1/3 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice. For topping, use 2/3 cup cream cheese frosting. Makes 42 cookies
