I saw this recipe in a magazine a year or 2 ago and thought it would be a really fun one for kids to try for Halloween.
One saturday, I mixed up the dough and chilled it.
This dough was very sticky and somewhat difficult to roll-out and cut with cookie cutters.
I let my kids choose a couple of different shapes that they wanted to decorate and then I just rolled the rest of the cookie dough into balls, and baked them.
The cookies were not too sweet. They had a nice flavor, which my kids really liked. The frosting was just cream cheese and marshmallow fluff, so it wasn't overly sweet either.
I used the leftover frosting on these pumpkin cupcakes and also to frost/drizzle on these pumpkin cinnamon rolls.
These were a definite hit! My kids really liked them and we had fun decorating together.
Have fun celebrating Halloween tonight! I am hoping the rain will let up for trick or treating later.
