Halloween is near and what better way to celebrate than to indulge in all things sweet! Try these six Halloween cookie recipes that will be sure to satisfy your sweet tooth!
Recipe from The Scran Line
These super adorable pumpkin-shaped sandwich cookies will get you all giddy this spooky season! It’s soft, buttery and filled with chocolate goodness! This recipe used a hazelnut spread but you can substitute it with melted chocolate, ganache, or even jam!
Recipe from Simply Happy Foodie
It’s dark, spooky and of course, chewy! Okay, I know that sounded wrong but these cookies are truly eerie looking! The dark chocolate was made possible by using a dark cocoa powder that looks almost black (it’s also commonly called ultra-dutch processed cocoa), dark chocolate chips, and espresso powder. If you love chocolate, then this cookie is for you!
Recipe from The Simple Parent
These pinwheel cookies look like they came straight out of a Tim Burton movie which only means that it’s perfect for Halloween. Now, I know it looks complicated to make but it’s not that difficult. You can probably even make these with kids as a fun Halloween activity. The best part? You can change up the colours and use this recipe for any holiday (e.g. red and green pinwheels for Christmas!)
Recipe from Sugar Hero
Tell me these cookies don’t look fun? These slice-and-bake Halloween cookies may be a little tedious to make but I assure you it’s all worth it! This specific recipe teaches you how to make a cookie with a black cat shape, but the process is all pretty much the same for any shape. My suggestion? Go crazy!
Recipe from Archana’s Kitchen
Okay, now THIS is scary. Almonds are used to make this finger cookie look super realistic. Add a dab of sweet fake blood (corn syrup and red food dye!) here and there and you’ve successfully scared your Halloween party guests (or trick or treaters). It’s also good to note that this recipe uses flax seed as an egg substitute.
Recipe from Smart School House
Possibly the most adorable Halloween treat! These ghost meringue cookies only need four ingredients and a bit of baker’s patience. But once you’ve nailed the meringue, you can make different ghosts shapes– fat and short or thin and long. The key is to think of Casper the Friendly Ghost whenever you make these cookies. Once the cookies are all cooled, it’s time to have fun creating ghostly faces!
