Pumpkin-Spiced Star Cookies

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine dry cookie mix, butter, egg, pumpkin pie spice, and nutmeg. Stir with a wooden spoon until a stiff dough forms; if necessary, knead to combine.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Using a 1-1/2- to 2-1/2-inch star-shape cookie cutter, cut out dough. Re-roll trimmings and repeat cutting dough. Arrange cutouts 1 inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  3. Bake in preheated oven about 8 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned. Cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute. Transfer to a wire rack; cool. Drizzle with Brown Butter Icing. Makes 36 large stars or 72 small stars.
