I used some cutesy cutters I found at the Dollar Tree. They have a nice pale orange color to them, and only a subtle pumpkin taste. In the future I will add more pumpkin and spices. Overall they aren't too sweet, so I added a glaze to them instead of the frosting called for. They are a nice, crisp pumpkin cookie.
Up close and shiny:
I should mention that while the dough for the cookies was chilling, I made zucchini muffins. I used the same recipe as the previous Zucchini Spice Bread from here, only I left the gumdrops out this time and added the currants and walnuts as directed. These were for work, and they are a bunch of squares.
I absolutely HATE using muffin liners. I only use them when I take muffins or cupcakes to work. Sigh. These turned out very well, and moist, again.
One of my co-workers told me never to bring the pumpkin cookies again, as she could not keep her hands off them. I take that as the highest compliment.
