These may have been the easiest cookies Ive ever made. I saw a variation of this online last week and decide to try spice them up a bit. My daughter LOVES to decorate cookies. It may be one of her most favorite things to do, like ever. Target had all their cake decorations on sale through the Cartwheel app. (if you dont already have this, its a must!) So I stocked up!
My daughter was able to help me with almost all of this recipe. Once they were cool, I put all the fun decorations on the table and let her go for it. She made some cute and some not so cute cookies. (Dont tell her I said the latter). I let her decorate a few and then I did a few. Mine were boring, I just added icing, which is white obviously, and then two candy eyeballs. I really dont have a lot of artistic ability, so my cookies were simple ghosts, or maybe mummies? Either way, they were prefect for Halloween!
I considered mixing in a tablespoon of pumpkin into the icing too, which would give them even more pumpkin flavor, but decided I was too lazy to get the mixer out, ha!
You are gonna love these cookies but not just because they are yummy. They are also simple. Enjoy!
