Witches' Hats

Rating: 4.5 stars 48
A cute and simple little Halloween treat that everyone will love. The amount this recipe makes depends on how many cookies and chocolate kisses you have. It just depends on how many you want. The last time I made these, I ended up making about 140 or so.

Halloween Ghost Cookies

Rating: 4.5 stars 3
All you need for these ghost cookies is a cookie cutter in the shape of a tulip and then turn it upside-down - if you don't have that one, you can easily freehand the ghost shapes. These are great giveaways for trick-or-treaters and a nice alternative to all the candy.

Halloween Skeleton Cookies

Rating: 5 stars 1
I bake these creepy skeleton cookies every year for Halloween, but they work also for Day of the Dead. You can use any cut-out-cookie recipe as the base. I usually cut out 2 different-shaped figures using my gingerbread men cookie cutters.
