Halloween Cookies

    Posted by  ·  October 19, 2010

    Here is a way to get some extra use out of your gingerbread cookie cutter by making some skeleton and mummy cookies.

    Skeleton Cookies

    After you make your favorite sugar cookie outline a skeleton shape with royal icing and a #2 decorating tip.

    Thin the royal icing and flood the head and part of the skeleton.

    Allow icing to harden slightly.

    Add facial details with black royal icing piped with a #2 decorating tip.

    Mummy Cookies

    Using royal icing glue two candy eyes onto the cookie. Make the mummy’s dressings with a #46 basket weave tip.

    Cookies fit for a ‘spooktacular’ Halloween!

      I absolutely love these, I have a weekend carving pumpkins with my boys, and now I have another mix to add to our Halloween creation weekend. with 2 nine year olds it should be interesting to see how they implement the skeleton, but I'm excited :)

      These are cute. It looks like you used some kind of bottle to fill in the icing for the skeleton face. Is that correct? What type of bottle did you use? Thanks!
