Halloween Cookies!

H4

Halloween came a bit early this year! B and I thought we’d try our creative bakers’ hands at some Halloween sugar cookies. We had such a blast, but our artistic creations often looked like a couple of kindergartners decorated them. I didn’t photograph the ugly ones! Yes, that’s right, the above photo is the “pretty” cookies! But we had fun, made a great mess, and the cookies are so yummy.
