Cookie Friend and I are always emailing "KISS" when we discuss our plans to make cookies. "Keep It Simple, Silly!" (Don't cut too many different designs that require more colors than we have bottles to fill. Focus on just a few!) For once, I did follow my own advice.
I wanted to make a batch of Halloween cookies for the grandkids, who we will see this weekend. Jack-o-Lanterns are a given, but I had to decide what I would add into the mix. Ghosts would be easily recognizable by toddlers. Then I remembered a blog tutorial for mummy cookies. I have never made mummies, so now was the perfect time. Pumpkins and ghosts and mummies, oh my!

The toughest part of making these cookies was deciding what to include. I chose bowling shirts (King Pins), bowling pins and ball, sun glasses, dresses with poodles on the skirt, convertibles, malts, records, musical notes, juke boxes, and saddle shoes.
The shoes were absolutely my favorite!
Our granddaughters' babysitter requested cookies for her daughter's sleepover party. Melanie just redecorated her bedroom in hot pink, black and white, so we decided to stay with that color scheme. The invitations were birthday cakes, so the main cookie was a cake dripping in frosting and topped with 9 candles to mark her 9th birthday! Melanie is a very stylish gal, so the zebra print on her initial seemed to fit her personality.
I have two Candy Corn cutters. One is 3 inches. The other is an Itsy. These little nibblers are addictive and dress up any platter!
