Pumpkin Shaped Sugar Cookies
This week will be full of baking for our good friend’s Halloween party on Saturday. So, I’ve been looking through all my yummy fall recipes to see which ones would be perfect for the party. About a week ago I made these pumpkin shaped sugar cookies for a flea market and bake sale that a local church had.
This recipe is really easy and makes delicious sugar cookies. I usually use it around christmas time and make christmas cookies of all different shapes. But I thought it would be great to use my pumpkin and leaf cookie cutters and make them now for fall.
Here is the sugar cookies recipe:
Combined with the recipe I have for homemade frosting, they are irresistible. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’ve always been a fan of the ‘icing in a can’ but ever since I started making this frosting I can’t (and won’t) go back. It’s so good you can eat a whole bowl of it by itself but you don’t feel sick afterwards like you do with icing from a can. (Believe me, I’ve tried). And the best part is that it’s SO easy to make. I just dyed half of it orange and the other half green and got out the pastry bags to decorate the pumpkins and leaves. I also put sprinkles on some of the cookies before I baked them to have a variety of decorations.
Here is the frosting recipe:
Serving them with candy corn adds a lot of fun and kids love it.
