Mini Pumpkin Shortbread

The inspiration for this Mini Pumpkin Shortbread came from the November monthly flavor kit from RawSpiceBar.  They offer freshly ground, globally inspired spice & flavor kits that change monthly.  You can sign up for just 1, 6 or 12 months.  They also offer gift options for 3, 6 and 12 months (great for this time of year).  Each month, 3 new flavor kits will arrive at your door, along with recipe ideas.  It is a great way to not only sample new spice combinations, but to try out different recipes as well!
