    In large bowl, break up cookie dough. Stir or knead in flour until well blended. (DO NOT EAT RAW COOKIE DOUGH AFTER COMBINING WITH FLOUR.) Reshape into log. If too soft to cut into slices, refrigerate up to 30 minutes.

    Heat oven to 350°F. Cut dough into 16 (1/2-inch) slices. To make stem, at top of each slice, cut out small pie-shaped wedge. Push dough together where wedge was removed to reshape slice. 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.
