1. Jack-O-Lantern Cookies
Thoroughly cream margarine. Add sugar to
margarine and blend until light. Add vanilla. Add egg; beat until fluffy.
Stir in milk. In another bowl put flour, baking powder and salt; blend
with a whisk or a spoon until thoroughly mixed. Gradually add flour
mixture to creamed mixture; blend well. Scoop dough out onto plastic wrap,
cover with wrap and press down to make a thick, flat round. Chill in
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Cut batch of dough in half; keep one half
in refrigerator while working with the other half. On a well floured
surface, using a floured rolling pin, roll dough to between 1/8-inch and
1/4-inch. Use a 2-inch biscuit cutter or round cookie cutter to make
cookies. Place on cookie sheet greased with butter-flavored shortening, if
possible (otherwise, regular flavor shortening). Bake for 6 to 8 minutes
or until lightly browned around the edges. Cool on wire rack. Repeat with
remaining dough. Store in airtight container until you are ready to spread
them with frosting and decorate. Spread frosting on cookies; then make
Jack-o-lantern faces using colorful small candies or icing gel in a tube.

Use a serrated knife to carefully cut 18 of
the cookies into quarters. Save remaining cookies for another use. For
each bat, place 2 cookie quarters 1/4" apart on waxed paper. Repeat
with remaining quarters. Melt candy melts. Drop about 1/2 teaspoon of
melted candy at center of each bat, connecting cookies. Use a toothpick to

place them down on wax paper. Place an unwrapped Hershey's kiss on the
middle of the cookie attaching it with a dab of frosting. With colored
frosting (red, orange or green, make a ring around the candy kiss with a
ribbon in front.
7. R.I.P. Cookies
Take a premade (store bought) oval sandwich
cookie and write the letters "R.I.P." on it with icing in a
tube. Any color will do. Let the icing dry a bit on the cookies. Insert
the cookie partially into a cupcake that has been pre frosted with green
frosting to make it look like a lawn. You can decorate the cup cake with
candy pumpkins if you like, and add licorice sticks to look like trees.
8. Monster Cookies
Each person creates their own monster
cookie by making a face on an oatmeal cookie (can be precooked or store
bought cookies) by using candy corn, chocolate chips, marshmallows,
raisins, etc. Place the cookies on a cookie sheet and place in a hot oven
just long enough for the faces to melt. This creates truly monstrous
Things you can use.

Marshmallows Raisins Coconut Gummy candies
9. Eyeball Cookies
These cookies were made by adding red icing
in a tube to store bought sugar cookies to give a blood shot eye effect. A
half of a red cherry was placed on top in the middle of each cookie.
