Pies, Applesauce & Cookies... oh, my!

We made crock pot applesauce today, and Erik & Solomon cubed nearly all of the apples for it (after I peeled, cored, and sliced). We did 11 apples (since there was some snacking going on), and followed the recipe for the rest. Delish!
Pumpkin pie made with pumpkins from South 47 Farm (cut the pumpkins in half, horizontally, and baked at 475-degrees F in about 1/2-inch water in 9/13 baking dish until fork-tender, scrape out, then puree the pulp), frosted sugar cookies we did with Abby & Ben, and our crock full of applesauce fixings.
Basic Frosting for Sugar Cookies

2 Tbs. butter
3 tsp. vanilla
5 c. powdered sugar
5-6 Tbs. milk
4+ drops any color food coloring

In a small bowl, beat the butter, vanilla and powdered sugar until smooth. Mix in the milk one tablespoon at a time until a good spreading consistency is reached. Stir in food coloring to desired shade. Decorate cooled cookies, and set on waxed paper to harden.
