Halloween Cookie Party

So it's fall and the temperature, as well as my irritability, is swiftly dropping (can you hear the hallelujah choir too?). The crisp air and changing leaves will forever put me in an amazing mood. Life has been stressful for a number of reasons I'm not ready to discuss yet, (soon!) so I decided to relax with the kiddos and have a Halloween cookie party. For the record, turning a five and seven year old loose with icing in my carpeted dining room is probably the WORST way to "relax". Lesson learned.

Every December for the last decade or so the ladies in my family come together to bake a shameful amount of Christmas cookies. I decided that I would start the tradition this year with my own family, Halloween style. I decided to go with just sugar cookies for simplicity's sake. The boys loved it!

We started off with simple break and bake jack-o-lantern sugar cookies. My boys, and twin sister, are obsessed with these! They are simple and taste great. I'm not mad at it!


I also rolled out sugar cookie dough and cut out some Halloween classics: pumpkins, bats, haunted houses and black cats. However I may have dropped the ball on icing color options as I forgot black. Purple, orange and white got the job done, so no big deal right? We also had some crazy eyes and plenty of sprinkles to work with. They had a blast!







All in all a very pleasant way to spend our Saturday afternoon. I only ate two.. or three. Promise. I can't wait for our Christmas cookie party! Do you have any spooky traditions you keep with your family? Comment below!

  2. Cookie parties are so much fun! I do one for Christmas cookies, and never thought of doing it for Halloween, but since my daughter is getting older she'll probably be asking me when we're doing cookie parties soon :)
