Hump Day Snack: Mini Pumpkin-Pie-Slice Cookies

Create these adorable Mini Pumpkin Pie Slice Cookies for a seasonal snack or to use as place settings on your Thanksgiving Day table.
By: Jamie Lisanti

It's one of the sad-but-true facts of Thanksgiving that slices of pie just aren't very portable. To save possible pie-induced tears when dinner ends, bake up a batch of Mini Pumpkin-Pie-Slice Cookies. Use your favorite shortbread or sugar cookie recipe and a 4-inch round cookie cutter to bake pie-slice-shaped triangles. The key to making real-life looking pumpkin pie slices is in the icing. Mix up two batches using food coloring: one to create the perfect warm orange hue and the other for a just-baked golden-brown crust color. After piping the pumpkin and crust icing, add a dollop of white frosting for a whipped cream accent, or use them as place cards by writing the names of your guests onto each slice. Then pack them up and send them home with no risk of soggy crusts or collapsed fillings.
