We have a traditional recipe we use every year, it's a recipe you shape like a pumpkin, then frost and decorate the face.
Pumpkin Jack-O-Lantern Cookies
1 pkg Yellow Cake Mix
1/2 c. oatmeal
2 t. pumpkin pie spice
16 oz can pumpkin (not pie filling)
1/4 c softened butter
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease cookie sheet. Mix together all ingredients. Drop by 1/4 cup onto sheets. Make a little knob for the stem. Don't be perfect the frosting will cover it. Bake 14 - 20 minutes or til edges are light golden brown. Decorate with orange and green frosting. I buy the can cream cheese frosting and tint it. Decorate faces with gum drops, m&m's, candy corn, licorice etc.. Make them look like Jack-O-Lanterns. Yields: 19 cookies!
