What side of the pumpkin patch do you stand on?  As far as I am concerned, anything pumpkin is awesome.  Whether it is a decoration, kitchen item, food or a picture.  I love, love, love pumpkins.  Sweet or savory!  Yes!

I know everyone gets sick of seeing ten million pumpkin recipes in the fall on Pinterest.  Not me, bring it on baby.

If you are that person that can't stand pumpkin anything, then you are probably not even reading these lines.  If you are, then you probably want to move along because I am about to deliver some amazing pumpkin deliciousness in the form of a recipe.

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
2 tbsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. ground ginger
½ tsp. ground nutmeg
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup dark brown sugar, firmly packed
1 cup canola oil
3 cups chilled pumpkin puree
2 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350°F

Mix dry ingredients and set aside.  Blend wet ingredients and add the dry to the wet.  Spoon or pipe on to greased baking sheets, heaping tablespoons for small or 1/4 cups measurements for large. Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes.  It really depends on the size of your 'pies'.  You can test them with a toothpick.

Once they have completely cooled, frost with your favorite frosting.  I did the following

8 ounces cream cheese
4 ounces butter
1-2 tablespoons milk
3 cups give or take of confectioners sugar
pinch of salt
