HALLOWEEN COOKIE RECIPES


by Nikki B Vaughn

booo Halloween Cookie Recipes

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 refrigerator over-night.

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. Makes about two dozen cookies. 2/3 cup Margarine 3/4 cup Granulated sugar 1 teaspoon Vanilla 1 large Egg 4 teaspoons Milk 2 cup All-purpose flour 1 1/2 teaspoons Baking powder 1/4 teaspoon Salt See Frosting Recipes

2. Cat Cookies

Spread the black frosting on the cookie (see recipe above), try to make the frosting in the shape of a cat. Place the two green M&M's on as the eyes. Place the red M&M on as the nose. Cut the licorice into small pieces (about 1.5 inches) and place them on as whiskers. Put a small amount of the frosting on the bottom of (2) candy corns and place them on the top of the cookie as the ears.

4. Finger Cookies

So easy! Use the recipe above for cookies as you would do usually. Now have the youngsters roll the cookie dough into 3 inch sections. Insert an almond in the end of the cookie to make it look like a fingernail. Bake as usual.

5. Bat Cookies

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 smooth m elted candy into a uniform circle. Cool completely before removing from waxed paper.

6. Witch Hat Cookies

(Easy - no bake)

Take Oreo or any chocolate cookies and 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 faces.

Things you can use.

Any Cookies Candy Corn Chocolate Chips 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.
