Baked Halloween cookies

I wanted to try out some new cookie shapes for Halloween so I sat down yet again and made some new Halloween templates: Ghost, bat, pumpkin, coffin and a rat. They were a little bit difficult to cut out by hand, so thats why I have only made two of each shape.

I have also tried to make some “Witch fingers” out of the cookie dough. But the first batch ended up looking more like swollen fingers and not long, thin and “creepy”. So I had to make some adjustments with the new cookie dough and hopefully will the new “Witch fingers” turn out a lot better than the first ones (I will let you know)

Btw if there are anyone who have experience with colored cookie dough. I would be happy to know if I should use: powder or gel colors in my cookie dough?

Now I will go back into the kitchen and make some royal icing for the cookies so I can start on the fun part, decorating!

Happy Caking!

    I made the cutest red green and white icebox cookies for christmas and colored the dough with regular liquid food coloring. I made the regular dough, separated it into thirds, than returned 1/3 to the mixer and added the coloring and also flavoring. The liquid (even at 20-30 drops) didn’t do anything to the consistency! :)

    I love the intricate details showing on your cookies. Which sugar cookies recipe did you use – if you don’t mind sharing.
