  • Yield: 18 cookies


  • 1 package Pillsbury™ Perfectly Pumpkin Cookie Mix
  • OR 1 package Pillsbury™ Funfetti® Halloween Sugar Cookie Mix
  • 3 tablespoons Pillsbury BEST™ All Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 large egg
  • 25 individually wrapped fruit-flavored hard candies in various colors, unwrapped and crushed

Preparation Directions

  • HEAT oven to 375°F. Line baking sheet with foil or parchment paper.
  • BEAT cookie mix, flour, butter and egg in medium bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until soft dough forms. Roll dough on lightly floured surface to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut out with 4-inch pumpkin shape cookie cutter. Place 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheet.
  • CUT out two triangles for eyes at top of pumpkin cookie shape, making them large since dough will spread during baking. Make another triangle in center for nose. Cut out a mouth shape at bottom of cookie. Mark lines for pumpkin by scoring lightly with a sharp knife. Fill eyes, nose and mouth very full with various colors of crushed candy, taking care not to allow crushed candy to touch or overlap dough.
  • BAKE 7 to 9 minutes or until edges are light golden brown and candy has melted. Cool completely. Remove carefully from foil or parchment paper.
