It's been a couple of years since I posted anything for Halloween. I thought I'd rectify that and share two witch themed cookie recipes this year.
Store bought fudge stripes cookies turn into witches hats with the addition of two ingredients.
Turn the cookies so the chocolate side is on top.
Put a dollop of orange frosting -- I use Wilton decorating icing -- in the center
and add a Hershey's kiss.
Let the cookies dry and then store them in an airtight container.
If you don't mind doing a little additional work, a pretzel rod and peanut butter cookie are easily transformed into a witches broomstick. I like the look and texture of these braided pretzels, but you can use a regular pretzel rod.
Put the pretzels on a cookie sheet.
Mix up a batch of peanut butter cookies and roll the dough into balls. Place one ball on each pretzel, pressing down so the cookie will adhere to the pretzel when baked.
Use a fork to make vertical lines on the cookie to resemble the bristles of the broomstick.
Bake the cookies as directed and let them cool on a wire rack. Store the cookies in an airtight container.
The cookies don't have to look perfect because, at Halloween, the uglier, grosser and more disgusting, the better!
