Are you sick of pumpkin yet? My husband is. ("What are you making? Another pumpkin recipe?") Sorry. I couldn't resist. Plus I have lots of pumpkin in the freezer. These cookies are different than the last ones - you can roll them out and ice them! I used regular royal icing and sprinkled coarse sugar on top while the icing was still slightly wet.
I also couldn't resist trying out my new tiny icing tip!
