Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and grease a large baking sheet. In a bowl, cream the sugar and margarine until fluffy and creamy. Add in the pumpkin puree, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, salt, turmeric, and paprika. Beat until smooth. Stir in the flour, 1/2 C. flour at a time, until a firm, but still a little sticky, dough forms.

Roll the dough to a 1/4-in. thickness on a floured surface. Cut out the cookies with a pumpkin shaped cookie cutter. In half the cookies, lightly draw a face, if desired. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes, or until the edges start to brown. Cool to room temperature.

In a bowl, combine the chocolate chips and milk. Microwave at half power for 1 minute. Stir, then microwave for an additional 30 seconds. Repeat until the chocolate is smooth. Cool to room temperature and set aside until ready to use.

On half the cookies, spread a generous amount of the melted chocolate. Press another cookie on top of the chocolate to make a sandwich. To draw faces on them in the chocolate, make more melted chocolate and put it in the a resealable bag. Cut the corner off of the bag. Squeeze the chocolate from the bag onto the cookies to create faces.
