Best answer:

Answer by salt and peppy
Pumpkin Spritz Cookies

1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/3 cup canned pumpkin
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
additional ground nutmeg

Pre-heat oven to 400 F. In a large mixing bowl beat butter until creamy; beat in sugar and spices until well combined. Mix in pumpkin, egg and vanilla until well combined. In a separate bowl, stir together flour and baking powder. Stir flour mixture into butter mixture until well combined. Place into a cookie press and press out shapes onto an ungreased baking sheet (for best results use a silver-colored baking sheet, not the kind with a non-stick surface). Lightly sprinkle cookies with additional nutmeg. Bake 6 to 8 minutes or until set but not browned. Allow to cool 2 minutes on baking sheet then remove to wire racks to cool completely.

    3 1/2 c. flour
    1 tsp. baking powder
    1 1/2 c. butter
    1/4 tsp. orange paste food coloring
    1 c. sugar
    1 egg
    1 tsp. vanilla
    1 c. creamy chocolate frosting
    18 green jelly beans, cut crosswise in half

    In a medium mixing bowl, stir together flour and baking powder; set aside. In a large mixer bowl, beat butter and food coloring with an electric mixer on medium speed until butter is softened and food coloring is blended in (about 30 seconds). Add sugar and beat until fluffy. Add egg and vanilla, beat well. Stir in flour mixture. Do not chill dough. Put the flower plate onto a cookie press. Pack dough into press, 1/2 dough at a time. Press dough into flowers on ungreased cookie sheets.
    Bake at 400 degrees for 7-8 minutes or until cookies are just lightly brown around edges. Remove cookies to a wire rack and cool completely. Spread the flat side of half the cookies with frosting. Top with remaining cookies to form pumpkins.

    For stems, attach one jelly bean half to top of cookies with frosting. Let stand for 1-2 hours or until frosting is slightly dry.
