An annual trip to the pumpkin patch is a fall family tradition. We wear our puffer vests and leather boots. With a latte in hand, we stomp through the hills to find the perfect pumpkin.
This tutorial includes all my favorite things from the patch: the pumpkin truck, sunflowers, corn cobs, and of course pumpkins!! Add in some buffalo plaid, and this set is ready to say 'Hello Fall'!
For a single batch of dough, you can make about 18-22 of these cookies. I should note that I roll my cookies to 1/4" thick using the Dough EZ Rolling Mat System. The thickness of your cookies will impact your yield.
Prepping the Royal Icing
For a single batch of dough, I typically use a single batch of icing. Since I'm using a KitchenAid mixer, I made a double batch of icing and split it in half (reserving half for another project).
This cookie set has 8 icing colors. l don't measure exactly...I estimate. For a more detailed look at icing planning, CLICK HERE to read this helpful blog post.

Plan ahead to enjoy the most success with your cookie project! I break up the decorating process. It works better with my life to do a little each day. Here is the schedule for this cookie project and estimated times on how long each phase takes.
Mix Dough (30 mins), Chill Dough (2 hours inactive time), Roll and Bake (1 hour), Mix Royal Icing and Prep Icing Colors - it is helpful to make the colors the day before you decorate because the color will deepen overnight (1 hour).
Outline and Flood Cookies (1-2 hours), Allow to dry in front of fan before adding details (1 hour for standard cookies or 6 hours before stenciling with royal icing). Piping details and stenciling (1.5-2 hours)
**ALLOW COOKIES TO FULLY DRY 18-24 HOURS BEFORE PACKING. STORE IN A COOL OVEN OVER NIGHT.**
