Impressive But Easy
This is one of those fun and simple fall recipes. I have mentioned this before, but if you are new here, I am not a great baker. It is definitely not my strong suit. I am horrible at cake decorating. And if any dessert has too many steps, I will mess up somewhere! I think it mainly has to do with my patience. I pretty much have none. Ha! And baking requires patience and skills.
So, I love recipes like this. I can make a super yummy dessert that is so easy to make. It looks like I spent an hour making it! The flavors in this really transform the taste of the biscuits.

- For the cream cheese glaze:
- 4 oz (1/2 block) cream cheese, room temperature

- 2-3 tablespoons milk
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray loaf baking dish with nonstick cooking spray (on bottom and sides).
- In a bowl beat the egg and add the pumpkin puree, 1/2 cup sugar, and vanilla extract.
- In a separate bowl mix the remaining sugar and pumpkin pie spice.
Separate the biscuits in half (lengthwise) and coat with the sugar mixture (coating all sides).
- Spread the pumpkin mixture on each slice of the biscuits and stack in the bread pad carefully.
- Bake in the oven for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Allow bread to cool completely.
- Once bread is cool, make the glaze. Mix the cream cheese and powdered sugar with a hand mixer until smooth. Add two tablespoons of milk and mix again. If too thick, add milk a little at a time until you can drizzle the glaze. Using a spoon, drizzle the icing over the pumpkin bread.
