Pumpkin-Shaped Sugar Cookies for Sweeties

Welcome to the Homemaking Party! 
Every mom or grandma has that list of things they want to do for the little ones while they're still little. One thing on my list was to make pumpkin-shaped sugar cookies with candy corn eyes. It sounds like a simple thing, but it's a tradition my mom started with me when I was young and it's a special memory I have that I wanted to pass on.

I was in grade school back in the days when we could bring snacks on our birthdays and have a little party. As a homeschooling mom with a daily teaching schedule, I can now see how that may have been an inconvenience to my teachers to have their schedules interrupted without notice. Still, in "those days", teachers had the flexibility to stop lessons for a party and mine always did. {Did I just ramble on about the sad state of US education? Oops...sorry...back to the story.}

Anyway, my mom would make these pumpkin-shaped sugar cookies for me to bring since my birthday is October 23rd---just a week before Halloween. Our family doesn't celebrate Halloween now, but that doesn't mean we can't still enjoy a cute pumpkin with candy corn eyes!

Our family attends homeschool co-op on Wednesdays so I always pack the kids a lunch. Today they'll be treated with these sweets and my mom's tradition will have finally carried on to my kids. It took me 17 years, but here's one I'll finally be able to cross off the mom to-do list!

Thanks for stopping by the Homemaking Party. I'm excited to see what you've all got to share!

  1. I am happy that you remembered... Happy fall treats are a good thing!

  2. How fun! The cookies are adorable!

    And yes, I have to-dos that take me a long time to accomplish!!

  3. Sarah, the first link I'm going to check out is What Not to Say at Dinner -- I love that sort of thing! Your cookies look great -- the pumpkin shape makes a cute cookie, even undecorated.

  4. Oh my! I've got to add pumpkin cut out cookies to my fall to do list—even if I don't make it in time for the day we don't celebrate either! In fact, we've been known to carve pumpkins in November!
    Be blessed!

  5. Thanks for hosting! I am looking to find a homeschool co-op in our area and hope to find one, soon.



Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment! I read each one of them and love to respond back to those who visit! Please consider signing up for EMAIL NOTICES so you'll have a reminder of our weekly HOMEMAKING PARTY---and more! Have a wonderful day!
