Makes about 24

1 (5-ounce) package Lemon Drops candy
powdered sugar (optional)
1/2 cup butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon milk
orange and green food coloring

Preheat oven to 350ยบ. Cover 3 cookie sheets with foil.

Crush lemon drops in food processor. If mixture becomes sticky, add a little powdered sugar while chopping. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, beat together butter and sugar until creamy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Beat in flour, baking powder and salt. Add milk if batter is too stiff. Color all but 1/8 of dough orange and color the rest green. Roll 1" balls from the orange dough and flatten with your hand to make a pumpkin shape. Place on cookie sheets. Roll stems out of the green dough and attach to the top of the pumpkins. Carefully cut out wide spaces for the eyes, nose and mouth with a knife. Fill holes in with crushed lemon candy. Bake 8-10 minutes or until done. DO NOT ALLOW TO BROWN. Allow to cool for 10 minutes and carefully peel off foil.
