Chocolate-Soled Pumpkin Cookies

Pumpkin cookies

I recently threw together a quick, Halloween-inspired variation on a standard sugar cookie.  This could be used for Thanksgiving as well.  Or just use a different shaped mold and enjoy any time of year.

Make a batch of your favorite sugar cookie recipe and add orange food coloring.  Put the dough in a pumpkin-shaped silicone mold, but leave plenty of room for the chocolate.  Bake the cookies and allow them to cool.  Leave them in the mold.

Melt a bag of chocolate chips in a sauce pot over the stove, being careful not to sear.  Drip the melted chocolate onto the cookies in the mold.  Allow to cool.  Refrigerate if necessary to solidify the chocolate.  Use green or brown icing to represent the stem of the pumpkin.

The result is a very rich, filling dessert.  Enjoy!
