Would it be Halloween without scary sugar cookies? We made some pumpkins, bats and ghosts. So the secret to make your cookies literally scary is not great decorating, but because of the overworked, grubbiness of the dough that is licked, half-eaten, poked and prodded during the making process. I cannot recommend actually eating the cookies, but my kids don't mind. It is fun and we maybe have a repeat of this before Halloween, because this small batch of cookies didn't last long enough to get frosted!
