•5 Tbsp butter, softened
•3/4 cup sugar
•1 egg
•1 tsp vanilla extract
•1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
•1 tsp baking powder
•1/4 tsp salt

Beat butter and sugar together until creamy. Add egg and vanilla, whisking well. In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder, salt, and pumpkin spice. Gradually add to sugar mixture. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill for two hours or until firm. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to 1/8-inch thickness. Using cookie cutter or sharp knife, cute out large pumpkin shapes (about 4 inches across) and set aside. Gather remaining dough and roll out until all that can be used has been. Next, cut eye holes, nose, and mouth, jack-o-lantern style. Place on cookie sheets lined with wax paper.

Crush hard candies by placing inside ziploc bag, wrapping with a towel, and smashing with rolling pin. Place 1/4 to ½ a teaspoon crushed mixed crushed candies in each cut-out hole, making sure they are spread evenly, and touching the cookie on all sides of the hole. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until candies are melted and cookies turn golden brown. Cool 2 to 5 minutes on sheets or until candies harden, then remove and cool completely.
