Servings 12


  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 9 tablespoons fine shortbread cookie crumbs
  • 9 tablespoons powdered sugar sifted
  • 3 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla powder
  • red and yellow food coloring as desired
  • 1 tablespoon prepared green fondant
  • 24 toasted pecan halves
  • toothpicks


  • Crush shortbread cookies into fine crumbs (I used Walkers shortbread cookies) and mix with other ingredients into a smooth, stiff dough.
  • Add coloring to your taste or omit. (I know some people don't like using colorant)
  • Shape dough into balls and chill one hour.
  • Roll out some of the fondant into a thin rope.
  • Use a toothpick to shape lines into pumpkins.
  • Roll some of the fondant around a toothpick to curl.
  • Cut pecan half lengthwise to make a stem.
  • Slide the fondant off onto the top of the pumpkin with another toothpick and insert the pecan for a stem.
  • Chill again before serving if desired.
