  • 1 1/2 to 2 cups vanilla frosting or buttercream, homemade or store-bought
  • Natural Orange food coloring
  • 1 teaspoon cocoa powder
  1. Preheat oven to 325°F and thaw Cookie Dough at room temperature so it becomes soft to touch.

  4. Place in the refrigerated 5-10 minutes so shapes set.
  5. Bake cookies between 10-15 minutes. Since ovens vary, check at the shortest time and add time as needed.
  6. Once cookies have baked, allow to cool completely.
  7. While the cookies are cooling, mix 1/2 of the icing with orange food coloring in a medium bowl. In a small bowl, mix 1/4 cup of white icing with cocoa powder. Leave remainder of icing white.
  8. Spread the orange icing over a cooled & chilled cookie, use a knife or offset spatula to create a swiping pumpkin shaped effect.
  9. Place cocoa-icing in a ziplock bag and snip 1/4-inch off the corner to create a makeshift piping bag. Pipe the cocoa-icing at the top of the cookie as the stem.
  10. Repeat steps 8 & 9 until all cookies are iced. Enjoy! View photo
