Baking: Halloween Cookies

Baking has always been one of my favorite hobbies and with two kiddos I don’t get a chance to do it as often as I used to, so if we get some quiet time while little miss naps, I often invite Miss 3 to join me in baking.

Last week we dug out our autumn cookie cutters, picked up some Halloween sprinkles, and decided to make a batch of sugar cookies.

When it came to decorating, I think Miss 3 ate more of the sprinkles than she actually sprinkled. I used a plastic plate with divided sections for sprinkles and it helped keep them mostly contained! We did a little frosting with sprinkles on half of them and sugar sprinkles on the other half. The mix made about 16 very large cookies, so if your cookie cutters are not gigantic like ours, you could probably easily make two dozen.

I was really lazy and made cookies from a mix this time and they turned out mostly blob-shaped, so I definitely need a recipe that holds shape better. If you have an amazing sugar cookie recipe, please share!
