Servings: 1 doz.

Prep Time: 30 min.

Cook Time: 25 to 30 mins.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 fifteen-oz. can pumpkin purée
  • 1 egg
  • 1 can vanilla frosting
  • 1 cup vegetable shortening
  • Black frosting tubes
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • Toothpicks

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 375°F. Help kids measure the baking soda, cinnamon, and salt into a bowl.

  2. Step 2

    With a big spoon, cream the shortening, sugar, and pumpkin purée in a separate bowl. Add the egg and let kids mix it in.

  3. Step 3

    Show kids how to sift in the dry ingredients and mix everything thoroughly with the spoon.

  4. Step 4

    Drop heaping spoonfuls onto a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake 25-30 minutes.

    When cooled, ice cookies with frosting. Use the black frosting tubes to draw concentric circles on each. Use a toothpick to pull the black frosting out from the center (like spokes of a wheel).
