Halloween Treats

19 Oct

I love Halloween because there are so many goodies to make but so little time! I’ve found many recipes I’d love to try out this year other than my typical cut-outs and I can’t wait to find some time to make them!

Cut-outs are very time consuming, but they’re so pretty when they’re done! I’ve found a new trick to use when decorating cookies: a squeeze bottle. You can pick them up at a local craft store like Michaels for around $2. Piping bags are good to use too, but with the squeeze bottle you can set it down and not have to worry about the icing spilling out. Now I haven’t made any yet this year so here are my cut-outs from last year.


I like to use royal icing when I decorate my cookies. The icing hardens sort of fast so you have to work quickly when outlining and flooding. Here’s the recipe I use for royal icing. As far as the cookie recipe, I found this great blog called The Hungry Housewife. She’s amazing and I got most of my cookie inspiration from her. For her tips and recipe on cut-outs click here.

Here are some recipes I can’t wait to try. I’ll have some tutorials up soon once I make them!
