 Are you needing a change in decorating your Halloween Cookies? Do you have little ones who want to help decorate your cookies?  At my house, there are always sugar cookies for the holidays. So this Halloween the fun begins with baking sugar cookies with my granddaughter. 


After you make the icing you will need a kid, in this case my granddaughter. She dipped her cookies in a pie pan filled with the sugar icing. She placed the cookies on the waxed paper. Then, she selected the colored sugar with multiple sugars.




Sprinkle lots of sprinkles because my granddaughter said cookies need lots of sprinkles.

 


Of course more sprinkles are needed to make these special cookies.

 


Voila, cookies are ready to eat.


Here is a photo of the ones I dipped in green, yellow, white, and red icing.


We still have more cookies to make, but I thought I would share this today. Since so many of you may be decorating cookies, but would like to try a different way to decorate your cookie.

Last February, I posted a blog about decorating sugar cookies. I got the idea from a lady named Mary. In the blog I have detailed directions. 

Here is the link: Marbled Sweetheart Sugar Cookies


Make the icing in a bowl. Then pour a small amount in each of


 the pie pans. 


See photos below- white, blue, and purple icing in pie pans. I 

 

didn't take photos this time so I am including the photos from 


the Feb. blog I wrote.


Food coloring in pie pans.





Here are the cookies I made back in February:


 

When they dry they may not be as shiny.



I used the sugar glaze here on AR- Place in pie pans


Sugar Cookie Glaze



1 cup of confectioner's sugar (sifted)


1 T. of  light corn syrup


2 T. of water


10 drops of food coloring (or until desired color)



Enjoy the holidays! Happy Halloween!

Hello, Manella. That is what is so fun about having a grandkid. My granddaughter loves to make cookies.

Hi, Cat Hill. My little helper loves to bake. This is so easy. Just let the kids swirl the cookie and drip dry on a baking rack or waxed paper.

About Me
I enjoy cooking for our family sit down dinners. Although my kids are grown, we are a close family that enjoys 4-5 sit down dinners a week together. My family's favorite dinner is chicken enchiladas smothered in green chili. I have a passion for cooking, baking for the holidays and food photography.
My favorite things to cook
I am family oriented and spend time with my family enjoying meals. My favorite things to cook are Mexican food and any food my family asks me to cook. My family looks forward to home cooked Mexican food at least once a week and Italian food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am on a journey to reclaim family recipes that were lost when the cooks in my family passed away. Cooking traditions are a major part of my passion for cooking. On Christmas Eve, we always had green chili and tamales. Cookie baking, lemon bars, pizzelles , and potica have been a must at Christmas as long as I can remember. My family looks forward to homemade pizza, when we gather as a family to decorate the Christmas cookies. Thanksgiving wouldn't be Thanksgiving without noodles and gravy piled high on mashed potatoes, pumpkin pie, and broccoli and rice casserole. On the 4th of July, there is the 4th of July Potato Salad that I make using 10 pounds of potatoes. Mexican Food is part of our weekly menu--green chili served over mashed potatoes or as a slopper (green chili poured over hamburgers.) I am always making tortillas for someone. They call my tortillas little white pieces of gold. Saturdays are Family night for dinner. It is the one day my kids can request a meal.
My cooking triumphs
Seeking help on the Buzz and the AR Blog has resulted in a few triumphs. I am extremely ecstatic about overcoming the yeast monster. I can now bake baguettes, focaccia and the best rolls in the world, my Grandma Rita's Butter Rolls.
My cooking tragedies
My first attempts at baking bread/rolls resulted in rock hard flat rolls. However, I am improving. Baking at High Altitude is somewhat of a challenge.
