This is the best recipe for homemade iced pumpkin cookies that I've found. You can experiment with decorating them by adding food coloring to the icing and using sprinkles. Try getting the kids involved for a fun and tasty holiday activity.
Iced Pumpkin Sugar Cookies for Kids
Why is it that we make sugar cookies for our kids, when we know they'll immediately be wired up for the rest of the day? Oh, well, I guess it's holiday time and a little bit of craziness is to be expected.
These iced sugar pumpkin cookies are easy to make and lots of fun to decorate. Here are some cookies we decorated with the neighborhood kids. I think they came out perfect 😉
I know a lot of kids don't like nuts or raisins. If that's the case with yours, just omit them altogether or try substituting other nuts, dried fruit, or chocolate chips.
Feel free to be creative with these, especially if you have to please some picky kids!
I know a couple of parents that even make cookies with their children and set up a table in their school and sell them at lunchtime! Just make sure to talk to administration first.
