I don’t usually advocate things of the “slice and bake” nature but all bets are off when said cookies are stamped with adorable grinning pumpkins. Admittedly, they don’t taste as good as homemade, but kids will absolutely gobble up a plate of these treats without any questions asked. Plus there’s very little clean-up and you’ll feel comfortable allowing them to help you bake this quick dessert. Besides, everyone knows that ready-to-bake cookies are the gateway to a life long love of baking at home. First you unwrap and slice and before you know it you’re obsessed with the idea of making puff pastry from scratch.
