Lindsey here, back with one final pumpkin cookie recipe to add to your fall cookie repertoire.
When fall hits I get free reign on pumpkiny goodness and all I want to do is add pumpkin to everything I make.
I thought a fall sugar cookie would be fun to make. I found these super cute fall cookie cutters on Amazon. Of course, if I am going to make pumpkin sugar cookies, I need to make them PUMPKIN sugar cookies!
I found this great recipe for pumpkin sugar cookies on The Mommy Mouse Clubhouse. The dough is tasty, the pumpkin sugar cookie comes out soft and sweet, with a great pumpkin taste. Also, you can freeze the dough and save it for later if you don't want to make too many at once!
I got my cute little baker involved. She LOVED rolling out the dough and using the cookie cutters to make all of the fun fall shapes!
These pumpkin sugar cookies would be great for a Thanksgiving treat if you cut out pumpkins, turkeys, fall leaves, and footballs! (We also have a squirrel one!)
After baking them and letting them cool I used the royal icing recipe below to make frosting to decorate them. I only did orange at the time because I didn't end up frosting them until the end of the day and I was tired. But doing different colors on the leaves would be fun!
I also have some fun fall sprinkles in the shape of leaves that would be really fun to put on the cookies to decorate them.
I am definitely going to make these again and we'll have a fun fall pumpkin sugar cookie decorating party!
