Kid Friendly Jack-O-Lantern Cookies



This is the CUTEST idea EVER!  I found it over at "Bee in our Bonnet" and couldn't resist sharing with you.  I am definitely going to add this to my "to-do-this-October" list.

Check out the full instructions here.

So the basic steps are:
1.  Make sugar cookie dough
2.  Cut out dough into shapes of eyes, nose, mouth, etc - the way you would a real pumpkin!
3.  Bake and and let cool.
4.  Decorate with frosting and let dry.
5.  Grab some orange dessert plates (which will be your "pumpkin") and let the kids arrange and re-arrange their jack-o-lantern faces!




GENIUS!  I also LOVE the idea of putting all the decorated pieces into a jar to "gift" to friends or neighbors. Check out their full post for details on giving this darling idea away!
