I love fall, and the harvest season. When things are in full swing, I find myself looking for fun food ideas to use for fall and Halloween parties, and to take as a donation for teacher luncheons or dinners. Now that my kids are all in middle school, they won’t be having class parties anymore, but when their friends have parties, I don’t like to send them empty handed. This is something that’s fun and easy to make, and it’s a hit, even with teenagers!

Pumpkin Sugar Cookie

To make this easier for my little kids to help with, I used a pouch of sugar cookie mix, you could also follow my Homemade Sugar Cookie Recipe – it’s very easy to make and SO DELICIOUS! Begin by following the directions on the package you choose, just make one giant cookie instead of several small ones. If you have a homemade sugar cookie recipe, you can use that as well, just follow the same steps. It should bake around 13-15 minutes.

*Tip: Prepare the Jumbo Cookie on a Round Pizza Pan instead of a cookie sheet 🙂

Once the jumbo cookie is cooked, slice off the top of the cookie, like you would for a Jack O’Lantern, and then trim off the bottom so it’s flat, like a Pumpkin. Then, slice off a small section of the bottom part that you removed, to use later as the stem for the top of the cookie!

Next, mix the butter until it’s smooth. Then, add the vanilla, milk, orange food coloring, and powdered sugar. Stir until the icing is thin, but not runny.

Now you are ready to ice the cookie. Just spread the icing all over the top of the cookie and the top section that you removed earlier. Then, lightly frost the stem portion, and roll it in green sugar crystals. You need the icing to make the sugar stick 🙂

For the final steps, all you need to add is the candy eyes and chocolate chips for the nose and mouth. Be as creative as you want to be.
