Wooden Pumpkin Cookies

Happy Halloween!

I wanted to make you some Halloween cookies but I couldn’t decide what kind to make. Then, it hit me! Have you seen all the cute wooden disks that people are decorating with these days? Last Christmas I ordered a box of them to decorate and hang on my tree. They looked wonderful and I wanted to make some in cookie form. Then I remembered seeing some that Callye at Sweet Sugar Belle made and I knew I had to make wooden pumpkin cookies with jack-o-lantern faces.Wooden Pumpkin Cookies | The Bearfoot Baker
