Kitchen PrincessKitchen Princess PUMPKIN SHORTBREAD

And, as promised, Najika’s recipe for pumpkin shortbread:

Make a circular sheet about 7 inches in diameter


  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 2/3 cup frozen pumpkin


  1. Place the frozen pumpkin into a microwaveable bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and heat in the microwave for about three minutes.
  2. Peel the green part of the pumpkin using a knife. Smash the orange part.
  3. Let butter sit until it is room temperature. Place butter in bowl and add the flour and sugar to it. Stir with a rubber spatula.
  4. Add the smashed pumpkin from step 2 into the bowl and stir well. Mix it into a ball and refrigerate for about an hour.
  5. Spread some flour on a board and place the dough on top. Use a rolling pin to make it less than centimeter thick.
  6. Use cookie cutters to cut out shapes. Experiment with cute shapes like stars and hearts. Have fun with it!
  7. Place the shapes on a cookie sheet and bake in an oven set at 350 F for about 20 minutes.

Tip:  You can poke holes in the dough using a fork and bake it as you would in step 7 to get a whole sheet of shortbread.
