Time consuming? Yes, but what took the time was piping on the faces on the pumpkins. Dropping the ingredients into the bowl wasn't the hard part. The cookies came out nice and soft with a perfect balance of spices. The marshmallow made for a nice surprise with that first bite and the cream cheese frosting gave it that little bit of extra sweet for a nice finish. I would definitely make these again, but not as an every-day cookie. Recipe was good as-it, wouldn't (and didn't!) change a thing!
Far too many ingredients for a busy woman!! Much easier recipes out there!
