1/4
cup all-purpose flour

Steps

  • 1 In large bowl, break up cookie dough. Stir or knead in flour until well blended. Reshape into log. If too soft to cut into slices, refrigerate up to 30 minutes.

On ungreased cookie sheet, place slices about 2 inches apart. Place wedge piece, pointed end out, to form pumpkin stem at top of each slice.
