MAKE THESE PASTEL PUMPKIN COOKIES FOR HALLOWEEN!

Pastel pumpkin cookie recipe DIY Halloween 4

I don’t know about you but I can’t quite believe it’s October already, I mean we’re practically half way through the month now?! Say what! The good news is this means Halloween is just around the corner & if you’re anything like me then you’re getting super excited right about now! As you know we’ve never been ones to do things traditional around here so while Halloween may look like a mass of orange and black to some people, to us it’s still all pretty pastels and bright bold colours!

Today’s DIY couldn’t be easier if you want to welcome in the holiday with a little sugar (um…hello, who doesn’t?!) and we just knew there would be no one better to create this DIY than Deanna from Obsessive Cookie Designer! Her decorating skills are the bomb & if you haven’t checked out her Instagram then you must have been living under a rock because it’s all sorts of beautiful!

STEP 2:

Roll to desired thickness and cut into your pumpkin shapes! Then bake on ungreased cookie sheet at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes or just until beginning to turn brown around the edges. (Top tip: If you are having a problem with your cookies holding their shape, it helps a lot if you put them in the freezer on the baking sheet for about 15 minutes before you bake them.) Then leave to cool.
