Who says that pumpkins need to be orange? These primary Pumpkin Sandwich Cookies sport bright and bold colors and, when sandwiched together, create a unique shadow effect that makes these pumpkins look like they’re glowing! Fun to give out to friends and family at Halloween or bring in for a school snack, these sandwich cookies do take a couple of days to make, so plan ahead if making these for a party.
Make cookies. Prepare and roll out cookie dough following recipe directions. For each treat, use head cutter from pumpkin fun face cutter set to cut two cookies. On half of the cookies, use feature cutters from set to cut out eyes, nose and mouth. Bake and cool cookies.
Decorate cookies. Prepare Color Flow icing folowing recipe directions. Tint portions black, leaf green, Christmas red/red-red combination (for red), orange and royal blue. Thin all colors.
