|Pumpkin Sugar Cookies with Sweetworks Candy|
Halloween is the favorite Holiday of this house. We are planning a big Halloween party with over forty friends, relatives and neighbors. We can’t wait to rent out an old meeting house down the road and turn it into a haunted house. Over the years we have gathered fun items to make it just perfect.
When a huge box of Sweetworks Candy arrived at the door we couldn’t wait to “practice” making some of our treats. The Pumpkin Sugar Cookies with Cream Cheese frosting looked perfect after the little guys added some Sixlet faces to them, as you can see above.
These cookies are the perfect fall treat. Below is the recipe so you can try your own.
Pumpkin Sugar Cookies:
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 1/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
2 sticks unsalted butter slightly softened
1 cp. white sugar
1 tbl. brown sugar
1½ tsp pure vanilla extract
Wisk flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl and set aside.
In large bowl cream butter and both sugars until light and fluffy with mixer. Add egg and vanilla beat Just until combined. Add dry ingredients and beat on low about 30 seconds. Make a ball and refrigerate at least 1 hour.
Place refrigeratored dough on a lightly floured surface, let sit for 10 minutes.
Using a rolling pin spread dough to about 1/4-inch thickness. Use your favorite cookie cutters and cut the dough.
Place on baking sheet and return to refrigerator for at least 15 minutes.
Heat oven to 375 Degrees. Bake cookies for 8-9 minutes until edges turn the slightly light brown. Cool on a wire rack.
We love this Cream Cheese frosting recipe that we found on All Recipes .Com.
In a medium bowl, cream together the cream cheese and butter until creamy. Mix in the vanilla, then gradually stir in the confectioners’ sugar. Store in the refrigerator after use.
( For above cookies we used a couple drops of Orange food coloring)
Now to hide the rest of the candy from the family, and myself until Halloween.
