Preheat oven to 350. Cover 3 cookie sheets with foil. Cream butter and sugar. Add egg and vanilla. Beat in flour, baking powder and salt.
Add some milk if the batter is too stiff. Remove 1/8th of the dough and color it green. Color remaining dough orange. Roll 1" balls from the orange dough and flatten with your hand to make a pumpkin shape.
Place on cookie sheets. Roll stems out of the green dough and attach to the top of the pumpkin cookie. Carefully cut out wide spaces for the eyes, nose and mouth with a knife. Fill holes in with crushed lemon candy. Bake 8-10 minutes or until done. Do not brown. Cool for 10 minutes and carefully peel off foil.
NOTE: Crush lemon drops in food processor. If mixture becomes stickey, add a little powdered sugar while crushing.
