Halloweeeeeeeen Cookies

We might not be trick or treating this year but Halloween prep is still well under way at our house. The kids have madly been crafting decorations and are getting excited to have a Halloween treasure hunt in the yard tomorrow! Today we whipped up a batch of cookies using our tried and tested sugar cookie and royal icing recipes so I thought I’d pop them here again for anyone who needs an awesome cookie recipe…Cookie Recipe:

  • 1 cup (225g) softened butter
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 cups plain flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder

FYI I used electric beaters not sure how easy this would be without them.

Cream butter and sugar for a couple of minutes until light and fluffy! Then beat in egg and vanilla. Next add the flour and baking powder and mix well until it comes together. The mixture will look crumbly but if you pull out a handful and knead it a bit in your hands it should be a perfect dough! Then sprinkle a little flour, roll it out and cut desired shapes.

Cook in a moderate 170/180ish oven for about ten minutes (you can practically stand next to the oven and wait) until they are blonde and a little puffy. They don’t need to brown they should come out blonde.Let them cool before you attempt to ice them.
