Stuffed Monster Heads
Pumpkin Bread Cream Cheese Sandwiches
1 recipe Moist Spiced Pumpkin Bread baked in mini loaf pans
16 ounces cream cheese, softened
chopped dried cranberries (optional)
chopped dates (optional)
chopped raisins (optional)
chopped nuts (optional)
lemon zest (optional)
orange zest (optional)
orange juice (optional)
Thinly slice the moist pumpkin bread. Using your favorite Halloween cookie cutters, cut out shapes from the bread (in even numbers to make sandwiches). Spread the cream cheese on one of the shapes. Add the second shape and press firmly to make a sandwich. Refrigerate before serving. These are fantastic plain, but they are even better if you lightly flavor the cream cheese or add chopped fruit or nuts to the sandwiches. I like to make a wide variety of sandwiches, with each shape being a separate flavor. Some great ones to try are ginger-date, cinnamon-nut, nutmeg-cranberry, cinnamon-nutmeg-raisin-nut, orange zest-juice, cranberry-lemon zest, nuts-ginger-orange zest, cinnamon-ginger-nutmeg, cinnamon-lemon, and even cranberry-date-raisin-nut-ginger-cinnamon-nutmeg.
