Pumpkin cutouts for halloween.
These were SO simple, and the result of a bit of panic/the realization that although I’d intended to, I did not have the time needed to prepare and use royal icing.
The solution? Tint the cookie dough orange, tweak a smidge of leftover yellow icing in the fridge green and mix up a 1/4 batch of butter/confectioners frosting and add some meringue powder to make it set firm.
It took me less than an hour, including kitchen cleanup. Can’t do that with royal.
