Hi all! We tried the pumpkin face cookies and they were fantastic. Thanks for bringing back a little bit of childhood to my siblings. I've heard about this cookie a lot over the years and finally got to find out what all the fuss was about. We made two batches and everyone was thrilled! We'll probably make them around Thanksgiving too! Thanks again!
Hi folks! Thanks for the responses. I've been away from the computer for a while so I'm sorry I didn't respond faster. My sister and I will try the recipes hopefully this week. Since it is now October, it will be the perfect time!
Hey Bugsley! Too bad you weren't home in the 'Burgh this weekend. They were celebrating Pittsburgh's 250th anniversary. They had a 30 minute fireworks display that was pretty great. You know we shoot off fireworks every other weekend here. :) They shot them from 5 locations on the rivers and from 3 buildings and a bridge or two. It was really something!

NOTES : Runner-up recipe
In the recipe, it states to use "cane juice" which is organic powdered sugar, they say. Can you use regular powdered sugar, does anyone know? I don't have access to anything organic where I live.
