Easy Pumpkin Pie Slice Cookies

I have a confession.  I’m one of those people that doesn’t like pumpkin pie.

I know, what a weirdo.  In any case, decorated pumpkin pie cookies are the closest this Thanksgiving favorite is getting to my mouth.

Simple Pie Slice CookiesSince I own an entire bin of candy corn cookie cutters, I picked my favorite for this project.  If you don’t have this exact one, don’t stress, any candy corn will do.  If you need a candy corn cutter, you can pick one up here.

Begin by outlining and flooding the cookies as pictured below.

Put your own spin the design by using different tips (like a star) for this step.

Using transfers is a great solution for those of you who aren’t quite confident enough to pipe directly on a cookie, need to to work ahead, struggle with cratering, or like easily removable accents (for people who don’t like a lot of extra icing on their cookies).
