This recipe needs 10 cents of savvy artist skill. The dough (pastry dough) needs creation and will be cut into a face. Example as a Jack O’Lanterne type of thing, but please make your own design, with a sharp knife and a spoon that’s all the tools you will need. You can draw the shape on the dough with a pencil, having cut off the lead not to give any bad specs of lead.
