This is a very nice treat and so simple. They are perfect in the fall, sitting with a book and a cup of tea by a warm fire. Or in the kitchen with hot coffee and a friend in the morning.
I had these at Trader Joe's once when they were featuring their puff pastry, which happens to be one of the better commercially available ones. I shortened the name because 'Pumpkin Butter Cream Cheese Puffs' is just far too long. And I think Pumpkin Puffs is a much cuter name. I just cut them smaller and added nuts.
That is it.

4 oz whipped cream cheese
1/2 jar pumpkin butter, (12.5 oz jar)
