What you'll need:
Pumpkin Spice Cookie Recipe:
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1.5 tsp ginger
1 tsp allspice
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground cloves
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 15 oz. can pumpkin puree- strained (Don't worry, we'll go over this later)
3-4 cups of flour (We'll go over this as well.)
-5/16 inch wood dowel rods (Not necessary, but very helpful. Find these at Home Depot or Lowes.)
-straight and serrated knives (KIDS- ask your parents for help!)
-frosting bags (you can also use plastic sandwich bags)
-round frosting tips (not necessary, but helpful to make finer lines)
-large mixing bowl
-thin towel such as a tea-towel or cheese cloth
-food coloring- We used black, purple, green, orange, and brown
-canned frosting (or you can use your own recipe if you have one)- We used 2-3 cans of cream cheese, and one can of milk chocolate. I recommend buying an extra can just in case. You can always use it later if you don't end up needing it.
-candy corn pumpkins
-rectangle marshmallows- These can be found at most grocery stores. You can also use graham crackers or some other rectangular (gravestone shaped) cookie.
-orange colored chocolate candies
-bloody bones candies- We found these at our large Walmart.
-cookie sheet or cardboard for the base- We used a white cake board.
