Expert Tips

  • Use leftover cookie dough to make small cookies to use as a garnish. For each cookie, shape 1/2 teaspoon dough into ball; place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350°F 6 to 8 minutes or until edges are very light golden brown. Cool 1 minute before removing from cookie sheet. Place one cookie in each dollop of whipped cream.
  • You can sprinkle a few chopped pecans on the whipped topping, and omit the cookie garnish. Use the remaining dough to bake cookies as directed on package.
  • If you don’t have pumpkin pie spice, you can use 1 1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon, 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger and 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg.
