More Halloween Fun

The Bats and Pumpkins

The Mummies

The whole group together with the twinkie mummies
and an oreo spider!

   My boys and I had some friends come over to make mummy cookies and twinkies.  This turned into making bats and pumpkins too.  It was really fun and I was impressed with how creative the kids could be.  My oldest made pirate pumpkins and put "stitches" on the mummies for effect.  The recipe below is for the cookies and the frosting we used.  The cookies are so soft and delicious.  I will often add just a little bit of vanilla to them also, but you don't have to.  For this recipe it made about 6-7 dozen cookies.  We had to make double the recipe for frosting and I still ran out, so it makes a lot!

Soft Sugar Cookies

2 C Sugar
1 C Butter, softened
2 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Salt
3 Eggs
1 C Milk
4-6 C Flour

Cream the sugar, butter and eggs.  Add the baking powder, soda and salt.  Then add the milk and slowly start adding the flour until the dough is no longer sticky.  Refrigerate for easier rolling.  Roll out to 1/4 to 1/2" thick.  Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes.

Sugar Cookie Frosting

4 oz Cream Cheese
1 Cube Butter, softened
1/2 tsp Vanilla
4 C Powdered Sugar

Combine cream cheese, butter and vanilla.  Add powdered milk until frosting is the consistency you would like.  If it gets to thick, add a small amount of milk to thin.  Separate into bowls to mix colors.

Love these, and perfect for adults too. Why, tea and biscuits never looked so good!
