Easy Halloween Cookies & Halloween Gift Ideas
In my post from 2010, I used Gingerbread, but I like the idea of sugar cookie as most people prefer that flavor. Who said Gingerbread Cut Out cookies are only for Christmas?
As I was looking through a gourmet food catalog years ago, I found a picture of a skeleton cookie and thought I can make that on gingerbread cut out at home.
For the skeleton cookies, simply cut out the gingerbread boys. LOL , I just realized I forgot to take a photo of the before and after.
To make the ghosts you can cut out a gingerbread girl and take off her arms or just form one free hand.
Decorating Halloween Cookies is always a fun kids activity. I have found the Wilton cookie decorating writers at both Target and our AC Moore Stores. For some reason I could not get them to stay very thick, so they were a little runny.
