Try your hand at decorating Day of the Dead sugar skull cookies.
The best part about Halloween — aside from dressing up as your favorite characters and binge watching scary movies — has to be the endless amounts of Halloween treats you’re allowed to consume. But rather than taking the easy way out and putting out bowls of candy at your next Halloween costume party, why not bake some Halloween cookies to serve as the sweet treat?
Not only are these Halloween cookies delicious, but they’ll save you from having to spend too much money on bags of candy that’ll probably last you for the next three Halloweens. With this selection of Halloween cookie recipes, bakers and cookie-decorators of all levels will find something they'll love to make, from intricate Day of the Dead sugar cookies to easy designs to add to store-bought cookies with icing.
But no matter what Halloween cookie recipe you decide to bake, make sure to keep a couple of cookies for yourself because they’ll vanish like ghosts as soon as you put them on the dessert table.
