Witches' Hats

Rating: 4.5 stars 48
A cute and simple little Halloween treat that everyone will love. The amount this recipe makes depends on how many cookies and chocolate kisses you have. It just depends on how many you want. The last time I made these, I ended up making about 140 or so.

Sugar Cookie Icing

Rating: 4.5 stars 3772
This icing dries hard and shiny and the colors stay bright. Choose as many different food colorings as you desire.

Halloween Ghost Cookies

Rating: 4.5 stars 3
All you need for these ghost cookies is a cookie cutter in the shape of a tulip and then turn it upside-down - if you don't have that one, you can easily freehand the ghost shapes. These are great giveaways for trick-or-treaters and a nice alternative to all the candy.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies III

Rating: 4.5 stars 1830
If you like pumpkin pie and chocolate, you'll love these cookies. I think they taste best when they are cold from the refrigerator.

Halloween Skeleton Cookies

Rating: 5 stars 1
I bake these creepy skeleton cookies every year for Halloween, but they work also for Day of the Dead. You can use any cut-out-cookie recipe as the base. I usually cut out 2 different-shaped figures using my gingerbread men cookie cutters.

Acorn Candy Cookies

Rating: 4.5 stars 103
Cute little treats all on their own or a fun decoration for your cupcakes! Enjoy as is or use to decorate cupcakes. If you are good at piping try adding some colored leaves made of frosting to the top of the Nilla® Wafer.
