Baked through?

Whenever I have tried to bake these kinds of things I rarely have any good luck getting the mess to cook evenly in the middle without over cooking the outer edges. Any suggestions?

    paulette tingle from Trout, LA

    It's that time again. The school carnival is just around the corner, so I tried this out last weekend to surprise my grand kids. They were so surprised that they each ask me to donate 1 in each their names to the cake walk. This should work just as well as a ghost, don't ya think.

    too big to handle!

    MARSHA MARSHA from MOUNT PLEASANT, PA

    Well I don't know what went wrong but my cookies spread out soooo far that it over flowed the pan and I ended up with a thin cookie and I had to trim it back into shape to look like a pumpkin!

    Fun and easy!

    Melinda Opela from PRAGUE, OK

    I took this to a family get together and everyone loved it. It was easy to make and so cute. I used candy to make the face instead of frosting. Tasted great. I also used orange extract to flavor my orange icing. It doesn't take very much time at all to do! GREAT recipie!!
