Back in early September I was walking around Dollar Tree and spotted a bag of Halloween cookie cutters. I couldn’t pass them up for the grand price of $1.00 so I bought them and stashed them away. Well, apparently Halloween is coming up in a couple of days (whether I’m ready or not) so I told Zach that we could go ahead and make some cookies using them tonight.
(And when I say *make* cookies, I mean roll out the Pillsbury pre-made cookie dough, cut out the shapes, bake, and then decorate with pre-made icing. One of these days I’ll do it from scratch but I’m just not there yet.)
Zach and Evie both helped with the cookie cutters while I rolled out the dough and placed each cutout on the cookie sheet for baking. Evie got bored after the first few and went off with Daddy while Zach and I finished up. I was a little disappointed because for some reason I can never get sugar cookies to bake without spreading and flattening out so some of the shapes didn’t come out too well. Zach didn’t seem to mind though.
I had planned on baking the cookies tonight and then decorating tomorrow because I knew it would make for a late night but Zach was having so much fun I gave in and we started decorating. I think he got about four cookies done before he was too “tired” to do any more. He munched on a couple of cookies, then headed off to bed and left me to finish the rest.
Some of them came out nice, some didn’t. But, the important part is that we had fun together, right?
*The idea for the spiderweb design came from another blog (I believe she used it on cupcakes?) that I read this week but I can’t for the life of me remember which one. If anyone knows, please tell me!
Also, sorry about the crappy photos but I was too lazy to go get a real camera and took these with my iphone!
