I’d say it is about time that I posted my Halloween Cookies no? I was planning on posting them on Monday for Halloween but the current situation in the Northeast definitely prevented that. I am still without power as I am sure many people still are here in CT.
It is amazing to me. Just yesterday I started seeing traffic lights starting to work again. My office building is still without power. They have us camped out in a building down the street taking space wherever we can find it. It has been a rather unproductive week, since none of us have phones. Although I found myself a pretty nice office to hang out in, definitely nicer than the one I have at the other building. Kind of like a field trip…but for adults, who work. haha
What a crazy year this has been…hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, tons of rain, snow in October…what are we going to get next? Godzilla?
Anyways, back to the Halloween cookies. The recipe for the sugar cookies and icing you can find here. I have used this recipe a TON. I love the sugar cookie and the icing is just a simple royal icing. All I did was add food coloring to the icings to make orange, black, purple, and of course the white was just like that.
I used a #3 tip to decorate them and make their outlines. Then I just used a #12 to flood the cookies. If you have never used royal icing before it can be really tricky, just a warning. You have to be careful with how much water you add for the flooding and at the beginning so that the icing has some structure to it.
Hopefully by this time next week we will be back with power. I haven’t been able to cook anything for TOO long. Thank goodness there is a gas stove I can use, but the oven I can’t use and the microwave as well. Living off of soup and spaghetti this week haha.
Happy very belated Halloween!!
Have a fabulous weekend everyone!
