Happy Pumpkin Pie Slice Cookie Made From a Candy Corn Cookie Cutter
The best part is, I snagged a three-pack of the most perfect candy corn cutters I’ve ever seen.
I was able to use the smallest one to make an almost-mini version, which is the perfect size for kids. Mine just happen to have their annual Thanksgiving feast at church this week. What luck!
To decorate these cookies you will need:
- Orange piping and flood icing (tulip red+egg yellow+ivory with a touch of the pink cheek icing)
- Black sugar pearls
- Deep pink flood icing (strawberry Progel)
- Tan piping icing
- Black piping icing
- Fine tip Wilton black Foodwriter
Begin by outlining the cookie with a #2 tip, then quickly fill with matching flood icing. If necessary, use and offset spatula to work the icing until it is smooth.
It is important to work quickly so that the eyes and cheeks sink into the first layer of icing before it sets.
Once the icing is dry, use a #5 tip to add a wavy “crust”.
I noticed while packing boxes that many of these types of accents were damaged during shipping. If they’re not going far, an accent is no problem, but, if you are planning to ship, I would reccomend leaving it off.
These happy cookies are great for Thanksgiving parties at school or with friends, along with the big day!
