dont mock me....its harder than it looks....BUT I WILL BE THAT GRANDMA

i decided it was time to practice my grandma-cookie-making-skills...so i got out my 100 cookie cutters....deciding to make it easier on myself and use the pumpkin.....its a circle with a stem

I have studied  many, many "BEST EVER SUGAR COOKIE RECIPE"-----so i went the easy way and used pillsbury...let me know if you have a no-fail sugar cookie recipe.
 I found this pre-STINKIN-made cookie icing---it dries fast and allows you to stack cookies sooner.....can you use regular cake frosting (yes---canned)? it just never dries?  its new---so i decided to try it.

 
 my first batch was totally too done----and it totally fell apart---and slid down on the floor...sad.
 my second batch looks NOTHING like pumpkins----put them too close on the pan? where are the stems? AND THEY ARE HUGE!....but they are edible
 3rd batch----voila! stems!....well...on some of them....but there was a modicum of success!
 and then i decorated my pumpkins (altho the stems have all disappeared and they appear more apple or tomato-ish than pumpkins) with red frosting and multi-colored sprinkles---why? you might ask.... why not!?! i didnt have any stinkin orange frosting.... and i LIKE red....and...most of all....dagnabit......
BECAUSE I AM---AND ALWAYS stinkin WILL BE----THAT GRANDMA

This is so fantastic. And pumpkin-shaped or not, they look delish and they are making me hungry! If you are going to be THAT grandma, you have to figure out a way to share them here in FL haha! :)

Yummy! Send them to NOLA and Ill taste test them for you! And honestly, the little boys wont care what they look like. If you tell them its a pumpkin, they'll believe you! And yes you can use cake icing in a tub, but no it will never dry or get that cookie icing crunch to it.

Dude, sugar cookies are such a waste of time. Buy the beautiful ones from the grocery store and pretend you baked them! If a dessert doesn't call for chocolate then it's not worth making :)
