We frosted the tops with colored frosting and then decorated with jimmies. My kids had fun decorating them!
Very delicous cookies. I used Nikki's Sugar Cookies for my cookie dought (I don't like buying cookie dough). I followed everythng else as written. I only used cinnamon candies, because I am making these for DS school party. My DH had to call home from work to say how good they are. The pumpkin pie spice isn't overpowering in them, it's just right! These cookies do take a little extra time to make but I think they are well worth it!! Thank for posting this wonderful recipe!!
Followed your recipe right on down, then set each cooled cookie on a 5-inch square of orange plastic wrap before wrapping each in a large pit of clear wrap ~ All for the kids on Hallowe'en, along with other goodies I've made! They nice tasting cookies, but the looks is what it's all about, & for that, they're absolutely great! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
The cookies were delicious (I used Recipe 146956), and the candy idea is awesome! They were a little sticky on the bottom, so next time I might try just making indentions. They won't glow, but I think the effect will still work. Plus, it'll be easier than cutting all the facial features! If I cut them again, I'm going to make cookie cutters for the eyes and mouth!
