Halloween Cookies

Delight your little monsters with colorful Halloween cookies.

Classic Cut-Outs

Sugar cookie dough makes perfect pumpkins, owls, ghosts, bones and skulls. Use a chocolate dough for bats, witches' hats, black cats and spiders. Both types can be frosted and decorated. Try making Stained Glass Cookies in jack o'lantern shapes with glowing yellow eyes and grins.

Bar Cookies

Bar cookies add a soft, chewy texture and visual interest to cookie platters.

Fall Flavors

Pumpkin, ginger, apple, and cranberries are cool-weather delights.

More Halloween Treats

Make Witches' Fingers by piping finger-shaped cookies. Press whole blanched almonds or sliced almonds onto the ends to make fingernails. Frost if desired.

Haunted Gingerbread House

Follow our step-by-step instructions for building your own spooky cookie house. You'll be the envy of every green-eyed monster on the block.

Get set for Halloween fun!
