  • Step 1

    Set oven to 350*F

    Make the dough by combining:

    *1/4 cup sugar
    *1 tsp salt
    *2 packages yeast(mainly for flavor the dough doesn't really rise)
    *1/8 tsp baking powder
    *1/4 tsp cloves
    and
    *1/3 cup water

    then blend in 1&1/2 cups ap flour

    mix in 3/4 cup shortening(dough will be really moist and sticky so don't panic lol)

    add in another 1&1/2 cups ap flour

  • Step 2

    mix filling by stirring together

    *1 15 oz can pumpkin
    *1/2 cup sugar
    *1/4 tsp ground cloves
    *1/4 tsp ground ginger
    *1/4 tsp cinnamon

    set aside

  • Step 3

    keep dividing dough in half until you get 32 mini doughballs.

    flatten a doughball between hands and then roll out a circle about 1/8in thick

  • Step 4

    place about a 1/2 tsp of filling off center and fold over.
    pinch around filling to close, then use a glass to cut a half circle shape.

    repeat until all doughballs have been used

  • Step 5

    place on a greased cookie sheet and bake for about 15 min but watch carefully, they like to burn.
