Halloween Cookies

leaves and flours halloween sugar cookies

It feels like Halloween has come a little early this year. I did most of my celebrating this weekend, watching scary movies with a bunch of friends. Things have gotten a little spooky today as people are preparing for this hurricane. Everything seems to be shutting down tomorrow. It's going to be a ghost town, but I'm ready to snack on popcorn and play a few board games. Hopefully things don't get too bad.
If you have power, then you should consider making some super simple Halloween cookies like these. The ghost to the left is a standard sugar cookie that I have shared my favorite recipe for numerous times. For the regular sugar cookie dough, I also used pumpkin and leaf cookie cutters. The black cat cookie to the right is a new one to me, it's from Hannah's Vegan Desserts. It's a chocolate cookie with a bit of black cocoa powder. The black cocoa lends the cookie a very oreo-esque taste and gives it it's dark coloring. I also used the chocolate cookie dough to make a few bats and tombstones. I searched around for a witch's hat, but to no avail. I should start searching a little earlier next year. On an unrelated note, I think this is either the third or fourth time that I have used one of Hannah's recipes this month. Maybe my MoFo theme should have been working my way through Hannah's anthology.
I hope everyone stays safe for the next few days. It's better to prepare for the storms and stay safe then to regret it later. So stock up on the cookies and almond milk while you can!


  1. Those cookies look so cute and yummy. I will have to try the chocolate cookie recipe!

    I hope the storm isn't as bad as they are thinking! Stay safe :)

  2. Adorable! I love both cookies so much, and just just because you used my Black Cat Cookie recipe (although it doesn't hurt.) ;) So thrilled you've been enjoying my recipes! Warms my little baker's heart to hear it.

    Here's hoping we both make it through the storm unscathed. Hang tight and stay safe- I hope to see reassuring posts shortly after this passes to know that you're alright!

  3. Those both look so good! I love the black cat & I can't wait to try that recipe.

  4. THese cookies look great. I've been trying to figure out what to make for Halloween. I'm getting some great ideas!
