HOMEMADE SUGAR COOKIES:
Fingers & Ghosts, OH MY!!
Are you planning a Halloween Party this year? Need something creative and creepy to serve up to your guests?
I'm not having a party and I probably won't have any trick or treaters at the farmhouse this evening (we live 5 miles down a gravel road) but I still wanted to do something festive! So, I decided to make these Gross Fingers & Ghosts to take to my husband's office, G'ma at Assisted Living, and a few for our friends in town.
This is a super simple recipe that you can adapt with your own creative touches!
I used the Allrecipes.com recipe for my sugar cookies with slight adjustments find the original recipe here: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/easy-sugar-cookies/
For my sugar cookies I chose to half the recipe, all ingredients were halved except for the egg and vanilla.
(Note- I used an organic farm fresh egg. I've never used organic eggs until recently and I feel like their rich yolks make a big difference in my cooking and baking.)
Tip: Ungreased cookie sheet and "smaller dough fingers" made for more shapely fingers, helping keep the finger cookies from spreading out so much in the oven.
You could make this a quicker project if you buy store bought sugar-cookie dough; however, these homemade sugar cookies turned out absolutely DELICIOUS!
