I'm looking for a recipe for Pumpkin Filled Jack-o'-Lantern Cookies. My mom got the recipe from either the Pittsburgh Press or Post Gazette some time in the mid-50's. She sometimes talks about them and since her memory isn't so great anymore her details are pretty sketchy. She does remember that they were good. :)
Try this site:
By the way, I'm originally from Mckees Rocks..down the "river" from Pittsburgh.
Wow! That went right to what she needed! I just love this site!
Does anyone have a recipe for those orange colored jack o lantern shaped cookies that they sell at the grocery store this time of year? I think they are just sugar cookies. A recipe would be great, I would prefer not to buy them.
here as a sugar cookie recipe. Just use a pumkin cookie cutter and frost away!
NO FAIL SUGAR COOKIES
This recipe is GREAT when using complex cookie cutters. The dough holds its' shape and won't spread during baking. Make sure you let your oven preheat for at least 1/2 hour before baking these or any other cookies.
6 cups flour
3 tsp. baking powder
2 cups butter
2 cups sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract or desired flavoring (I like almond myself)
1 tsp. salt
Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix well. Mix dry ingredients and add a little at a time to butter mixture. Mix until flour is completely incorporated and the dough comes together.
Chill for 1 to 2 hours (or see Hint below)
Roll to desired thickness and cut into desired shapes. Bake on ungreased baking sheet at 350
degrees for 8 to 10 minutes or until just beginning to turn brown around the edges. This recipe
can make up to 5-dozen 3 inch cookies.
HINT: Rolling Out Dough Without the Mess -- Rather than wait for your cookie dough to
chill, take the freshly made dough and place a glob between two sheets of parchment paper.
Roll it out to the desired thickness then place the dough and paper on a cookie sheet and pop
it into the refrigerator. Continue rolling out your dough between sheets of paper until you have
used it all. By the time you are finished, the first batch will be completely chilled and ready to
cut. Reroll leftover dough and repeat the process! An added bonus is that you are not adding
any additional flour to your cookies
If you don't have a sugar cookie recipe you can go to the library and copy one or two from a cookbook. then it is fun to make cream chese icing with orange juice and orange food coloring.
Cream cheese Frosting for Pumpking sugar cookies.
2 8 ounce pkgs. cream cheese (not light or non-fat) 1 stick BUTTER not margerine,
2-3 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup orange juice
4-5 drops orange food coloring
Peat cream cheese, butter and half orange juice till smooth and fluffy. Add powdered sugar til just at spreading consistancy. Add enough food coloring to make the color of a nice healthy pumpkin. Spread or dunk and twist cookies in frosting. For eyes, use chocolate candy kisses. Cut the top off the kiss and use it for the nose. the flat portion is perfect for the pumpkin eyes. If you want you can then use kisses flattened by cutting off points and cut in upside down smiles. Place them side by side to form a crazy mouth. I also like to cut a thin piece of black licrish and drape it over the top of the cookie as a spider. Some like to have a green stem on the top of the cookies, If so color just a little sugar cookie dough green and pinch off making stems before baking press on top of pumpkin cookies. You can also color the cookie dough orange and bake them then decorate without frosting except to "glue" the candy on.
Happy spook day.
I think that they might be spritz cookies with the dough dyed orange. The recipe that I have is the following:
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
3 1/2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. cream of tartar
Cream the shortening, butter, and sugar togeterh until light and fluffy. Mix in eggs one at at time. Add in vanilla and food coloring. Mix until combined and the color you want to achieve. Mix in flour, baking soda, and cream of tartar. Mix until blended well. Once dough is finished cover and refridgerate for 20 mins. Meanwhile heat oven to 425 F and put pumpkin form in cookie press. Fill the tube half way and press cookies out on baking sheet. Put green sugar on the steam to make look like pumpkins and then place in oven for 6 to 8 minutes. Cool on cooling rack and enjoy.
These delicious whole wheat chocolate chip pumpkin cookies are perfect to serve for fall holiday get-togethers or to give as gifts to friends, family, and co-workers. The recipe is provided on this page.
