2-1/2 cups flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon nutmeg
6 tablespoons margarine
1 cup canned pumpkin
2/3 cup pareve whip
2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger

Filling:
2 tablespoons margarine
¼ cup brown sugar
½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon ginger
1/8 teaspoon cloves
½ cup apple juice
1 Granny Smith apple, chopped
½ cup cranberries

Topping:
1 cup pareve whip
1 tablespoon powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and nutmeg. Using a fork, cut the margarine into the mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. In a small bowl, stir together the pumpkin, whip and ginger. Sir into the flour mixture until just combined. Drop by ¼-cupfuls onto greased baking sheets. Bake for 25 minutes – until slightly browned and center springs back when pressed lightly.

Prepare the filling by melted the margarine in a large skillet over medium heat. Ad the brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger and cloves, stirring constantly. Add the apple juice, apples and cranberries and cook until the cranberries soften and mixture becomes syrupy – about 10 minutes. Cool. Prepare topping by beating together pareve whip and powder sugar until stiff peaks form.

To assemble, cut the tops off each shortcake. Top with a generous tablespoon of the filling and then the whipped cream. Replace top and serve. (Keep filing and whipped cream in fridge until ready to serve)
