Halloween Sugar Cookies!

This week I tested my skills on learning how to decorate cookies that are halloween themed. I learned that sugar cookies made an level cookie and would make the decorating process less of a hassle. I found an awesome recipe from Allrecipes and found the perfect sugar cookie that were light and soft. I also got the chance to roll out the cookie dough and try out putting it between 2 pieces parchment paper. It worked alot better then when I tried rolling my pie dough a few weeks ago.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I learned decorating is a lot harder than it seems when its done on tv and that when you make icing(Icing sugar, milk, vanilla extract,butter, food coloring) its important to know the amount needed, so you don’t make twice what you need. If you add more milk to the icing the consistency of it becomes able to pour on the cookies rather than spread with a knife. This made it easier for when I put a boarder of thicker icing to make a shape and would spread more evenly making it take the correct shape without using a knife to spread. I’m still new to using a piping bag and was really strange to draw on the cookies, but got easier the more cookies I decorated.

  1. Hey Ryan,
    The cookies look great! Sugar cookies always seem finicky to make and it looks like you did a really good job on yours. Every time I try to use food coloring I always making a color I wasn’t looking for so it looks like you got the colors you wanted! Keep up the good work!
