With Halloween just around the corner, these sugar cookies complete with spooky icing decoration are a great homemade treat option to give out to trick-or-treaters or serve at parties. The cookies come in a variety of shapes and sizes featuring all the staples of Halloween featured in the decorative design.
Royal icing is a great decorating technique for baking and giving cookies a bold amount of color with simple designs. These cookies are made using flour, baking soda, salt, butter, eggs and vanilla to create a simple vanilla base. Then the cookies are punched out using Halloween themed shapes like cats, Frankenstein heads and pumpkins. Royal icing is then used to create an outline on the cookies and fill them in with colors like black, orange and green complete with details such as spooky eyes.
