Decorated Pumpkin CookieTo make these cookies you will need:

  • Pumpkin orange piping and flood icing {I mixed tulip red, egg yolk yellow, and a touch of warm brown}
  • Green piping and 20-second icing

Begin by outlining the pumpkin segments as shown below.  Based on the cutter I chose to divide the pumpkin into three sections, but this can vary.
