How to make a witches hat and Halloween pumpkin cookies

Get your Halloween decorations done party favors taken care of with a cute witches hat and Halloween Pumpkin Cookies that are just as yummy as they are adorable!

You will love the amount of creativity you can exercise with these cookies, from color combinations to adding names to them easily, and more! I like to make Pumpkin Patches with these pumpkin cookies and put them on sticks to make cookie pops and then line them up in a little mini feeding trough or window box size container with some green tissue paper and fake ivy. You can add names to the pumpkins or to the bands on the witches’ hats to personalize them. Let your creativity run wild and have fun with the Halloween Sugar Cookies.
