Heckerty’s Halloween Hacks – Day 12 Halloween Sugar Cookies

Halloween Sugar Cookies

What you need:

Halloween cookie cutters

1 cup butter, softened

1-1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar

1 egg, beaten

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine flour and baking soda – gradually add to the creamed mixture and mix well. Chill for at least 1 hour or until easy to handle.

Divide dough into 4 parts. Sprinkle confectioners sugar on surface and roll the dough til it’s about 1/8th inch thick.

Using Halloween cookie cutters, cut out shapes and put on ungreased baking sheets.


Bake at 350° until the edges of the cookies begin to turn brown, about 6-9 minutes. Cool on wire cookie racks.

Frost with Halloween colors, orange, black, purple etc.
