3 cups pumpkin
1 cup sugar

Directions and Story; Put one heaping teaspoon/Tablespoon of filling on one side of the cut 'rounds' (I use a small mixing bowl as a guide to cut the rolled dough) fold and pinch the sides together. Place on greased cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes at 375 degrees.

We found this recipe in the 'Golden Manor nursing home' cook book from about the late 1980's. The recipe is traditional German cooking. We would make these between Christmas and New Years. This makes a large batch


  1. We are makin' this when I'm home.

  2. Christmas 2011 we tried cinnamon instead of pepper. I think they were even better!
