STRIPEY PUMPKIN COOKIES/ The Great Pumpkin



As Linus sits waiting, he says: "The Great Pumpkin rises out of the pumpkin patch that he thinks is the most sincere. He's gotta pick this one. He's got to. I don't see how a pumpkin patch can be more sincere than this one. You can look around and there's not a sign of hypocrisy. Nothing but sincerely as far as the eye can see."  
(Source:  "Charlie Brown and The Great Pumpkin" by Charles Shulz)

We all grew up watching the annual Peanuts Halloween TV special. We know all the lines and can even watch without the audio. It's a classic tale viewed by each generation and nowadays likely viewed with your own kids or grandchildren. Even as an adult, I watch every year. What about you?


This is the second design in the three-part pumpkin cookie series. The colors are the same as first cookie in the series, but here flood icing is used with the wet-on-wet technique to create a unique design.

  7. These are so beautiful. I tried decorating cookies years ago but I can't seem to get the icing consistencies right and they end up looking like they were done by a Kindergartener. You've motivated me to try again.

    1. Karen, Thank you! There is a bit of a learning curve when it comes to the consistency of royal icing. I found it just takes practice. You may find the "Decorating" and "Video" tabs helpful. Thanks for stopping by.
