ResHall Recipes: decorative Halloween cookies
By KAYLEE TYE
When people think of Halloween season, they think of costume parties, spooky decorations and, of course, the treats. This is a cute and easy Halloween recipe that is perfect to share with your friends.
For this recipe you will need:
– 1 cup of sugar
– 1 cup of butter (softened)
– 1 egg
– 2 ¼ cups of all-purpose flour
– 3 table teaspoons of cinnamon.
– Cooking spray
First thing you do is preheat your oven to 350°F. While your oven is preheating, get a large bowl out to mix your cup of sugar and butter in. You keep mixing until the batter is fluffy.
Once the batter is fluffy, then add one egg. After that, mix the flour and cinnamon into the batter. Now that your batter is ready to go, get a cookie tray out. I recommend spraying the tray with cooking spray or oil. That way your cookies won’t stick. When you’re finished preparing the tray, roll the batter into round balls about an inch thick. Let your cookies bake for about 10 to 12 minutes or until they are a little golden.
A way to make the cookie a little more festive is decorate it. I decided that I would draw a pumpkin on the cookies. You can have regular pumpkins on the cookies or draw faces on the pumpkins to resemble a carved pumpkin. I bought orange, green and black icing tubes. So when you’re not tricking your friends on Halloween, treat them with something you made yourself.
