  • Sift flour, salt, and baking soda together in a large bowl. Stir in brown sugar, shortening, egg, and molasses, mixing until smooth. Fold in rolled oats.

  • Roll cookie dough out to 1/8 inch thick on a lightly floured surface. Cut out 48 circles using a 2 1/2 inch cookie cutter. Arrange 24 of the circles on a baking sheet and place a teaspoon of pumpkin filling on each. Cut Jack-O-Lantern faces on the remaining 24 circles, then lay the faces over the pumpkin filling, sealing the edges.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.
