The Halloween gingerbread tree combines the eerie quality of All Hallow's Eve with the signature gingersnap taste of the Christmas holidays. The result is a creepy burnt brown cookie that screams Nightmare on Elm Street with a hint of candy goodness.

The hardest part of this recipe is making the scary 3D tree cookie. Stencils are crafted into the gingerbread dough in a way that ensures they will be able to be stacked. To do this the dough must be rolled out very flat. A pattern tracing wheel is used to cut around the edges of the cardboard stencil. The more of perfectionist you are, the spookier the Halloween gingerbread tree will look in the end.
