Happy Halloween

How adorable are these skeleton cookies? My sister always loved decorating cookies for the holidays. I loved how they looked, but I didn't really have the patience to sit for hours making detailed decorations when they were just going to be gobbled up. I love these skeletons because they are so cute, but really quick and easy to decorate.

Fun for all ages and perfect for every Halloween occassion. Even the smallest hands are capable of making a pretty great looking skeleton, so everyone can participate in the fun. Great for kids parties as well as adults. Serve a big tray of them or wrap up individually to send home with guests. They make a special gift for teachers or leave one at your best friends door. Wrap up carefully and bring a smile to your favorite college student or just surprise your little goblins!

The recipes used were Chocolate Cookie Cutouts (p.121) and Vanilla Frosting (p. 154) from my cookbook, or use your favorite recipes. Use a gingerbread man cookie cutter to make cookies. Once cookies have cooled, place frosting in a ziploc bag and snip a small hole in one corner. Hold the bag in hands to draw circle shapes with the frosting for the rib cage. Then make arms and legs. One quick circle completes the head and two dots for eyes complete your skeleton.

Quick, easy and adorable!

Happy Halloween!
