Who wants some scary, good pumpkin face cookies for Halloween this week? I had a hankering for pumpkin and decided to dip my paws into baking once again. It truly is a wonderful self rewarding behavior! Your pups will love these cookies and because I like simple, they are super easy to make. You can grab the recipe at the end of the post. There are a lot of ingredients, but don’t let that spook you.
I mixed all the stuff together in the right order to make a nice ball of dough. My secret here and hot tip is to use your paws to get things really well blended together. The mixing spoon just didn’t do the job, so I licked it off and used the old paws.
Next up is the task of choosing your cookie cutter. I have a whole set of Halloween ones but I want to make pumpkin cookies with faces, so I will be using only the pumpkin cutter.
Roll out the dough to about 1/4 inch of thick goodness and then push the cutter into the dough. Try not to eat too much dough as you need to save it for the cookies.
You can use any size of cookie cutters you would like. Mine are on the larger side, so I get about twenty pumpkins out of the recipe. Since I want fun cookies I used grated carrot pieces for mouths and eyebrows and some peas for the eyes. It is fun because I made some happy, some mad, and some really nasty looking ones. I did lick them as part of my quality control process.
It didn’t take long and my pumpkin face cookies were ready for the hot house, aka oven. Thankfully our weather is fairly cool now so as soon as they come out of the oven, I will put them outside to cool. Waiting to taste is so hard but they will cool fast outside.
The cookies survived the oven and the cooling off outside. I think they look pretty decent. Some them have cracks in their faces which gives them more character.
Now for the best part of baking, the actual tasting of the final product. I gently took the cookie off the counter, it is a shame to break them but it will have to happen eventually or I can’t eat it.
My cookie was gone in no time flat! All I have left is my cookie smile. They are really scary delicious!
Eating my cookies is such a project, I lost my Halloween hat but I think my tongue gives you all you information you need. Give these a try for your own pup, she will love you for it! Get your paws on the recipe and start baking!
