Decorated Halloween Cookies

Halloween Cookies

halloween_cookies Just getting some practice in. I wish I could befriend a professional cookie decorator so I could learn all the tips and tricks. That damn spider web is more difficult than it looks.
I know it is only October 4th, but can’t call me a procrastinator!!! So go decorate yourself some Halloween Cookies.

    Hope they were more fun then the Christmas ones, they look amazing, very professional looking.

    What's your secret for getting the cookies to maintain their shape during baking? Any time I've done cookie cutter cookies, they melt into a blob of a cookie that, if you squint your eyes just right, you can see what the shape was supposed to be.

    They look FANTASTIC!! I am a horrid cookie decorator, so I gave up trying. LOL!!
