Hand-Drawn Halloween Cookies

I found this super cute clipart and bought it with the specific purpose of using it to guide me in making these specialty Halloween cookies to send to a friend. I thought they would be really fun, but alas another friend of mine desperately needed cookies for a family get together and I just couldn't say no. At least I got to take a few pictures before they were gone. 


I worked at a volunteer event today from 8am-10pm. Yep, 14 hours volunteering. My feet hurt, my back hurts and I am exhausted. The cool thing though is that I had a wonderful time and it felt so great to be of service. It was for a very worthy cause and I met a bunch of wonderful people and got to see a bunch of people that I think the world of and some I haven't seen since last year. The event really couldn't have been better and I feel truly blessed and honored to be a part of it. I have one more volunteer event tomorrow (only about 5-6 hours) and then I get to make field hockey cookies. I hope you're all having a wonderful weekend. What do you think of a cookie challenge? I think we need one for the fall....

  1. Yes please! To a challenge that is.
    I'm a relatively new follower, and would love a chanceh to participate in something fun like this, and maybe get a few followers (or helper-out-ter-ers) along the way too :) Feedback is so wonderful.
    I love these cookies, they remind me of the girl in all the peanut comics *grin*

  2. Love, love, love your cookies. Great of you to volunteer like that.
    I 'might' be up for a challenge but my husband will kill me. I just made some for Halloween and he is TRYING to lose weight. :)
    He is laid off so it is hard to hide doing them. :)
    I wish I could find a used KopyKake.

  4. These are adorable and done free hand makes them all the more wonderful! Hope you get a good rest between all your busy volunteering and your Field Hockey cookies! Love your pumpkin blog background. I can't participate in the challenge but I'll certainly enjoy seeing what everyone else does.

  6. Great ladies. We'll do a cookie challenge of FALL cookies.
    * Susie - participate anyway. Just put them in the freezer and pull a couple out now and then. If you leave them all out, it will be difficult for your hubby's diet.
    * Paula - even though you aren't on Facebook, you can still play along. Just send me an email of your cookies and I'll post them for you.
    * Sharon, Giselle, Carsedra & Biscuit (I don't know your name sorry)- I'd LOVE to have you join our next cookie challenge! That always makes it so much fun when we play together!

  8. Cristin,
    Good idea about freezing them. I'll check your blog over to see if you talk about the best way to do that. :)
    If you ever hear of a projector for sale, please let me know. :)
    Thanks,
    Susie

  9. Susie if you freeze your cookies to help hubby with his diet, just make sure they are completely bagged. I individually bag each cookie and then I put all those bagged cookies into a freezer ziplock bag or a sealed tupperware container. With a teenager in the house, I very rarely have any extra cookies to hide away, but that would be how to store them to save for later. Another thing is that when you take a couple out. LEAVE THEM BAGGED with NO AIR until they are fully defrosted. The second you open that bag with a cold or frozen cookie, the icing will start to get gummy/sticky.
