      Frost On The Pumpkin Cookies
      1 cup Land-0-Lakes Butter softened
      1 cup sugar
      1 egg
      1 tbs vanilla
      2 1/2 cup all purpose flour
      1 tsp baking powder
      Frosting Ingredients:
      4 cups powdered sugar
      1/2 cup Land-0-Lakes Butter softened
      2 tsp vanilla
      3-4 tsp milk
      green, yellow and red food color
      Decorations:
      chocolate chips
      candy corn
      fruit-shaped candy
      Combine 1 cup butter, sugar and egg in large bowl.

      Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add 1 tbs vanilla. Continue beating, scraping bowl often, until well mixed.

      Reduce speed to low. Add flour and baking powder. Beat, scraping bowl often, until well mixed.

      Divide dough into thirds. Shape each third into ball. Wrap in plastic food wrap.

      flatten to 1/2 inch. Refrigerate until firm, 2-3 hours. Heat oven to 400ºF.

      Roll out dough on lightly floured surface, one third at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated) to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut with 3 inch round cookie cutter. Place
      1 inch apart onto cookie sheets.

      Bake for 6-10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool completely. Combine powdered sugar, 1/2 cup butter and 2 tsp vanilla in a small bowl.

      Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often and
      gradually adding enough milk for desired frosting consistency. Place 1/2 cup frosting in small bowl. Add 4-5 drops red food coloring.

      Stir until well mixed. Tint remaining frosting with about 20 drops yellow and about 4 drops red food color to make orange frosting. Stir until well mixed.

      Frost cooled cookies with orange frosting. Use green frosting to make stem. Use assorted candies
      for eyes, nose and mouth.

      Yield 3 dozen cookies.
      note: let the kids decorate the faces…but watch that they don’t eat all the decorations! LOL!
