spooky cookies

The boys and I were very excited to try out my new cookie stamps and make some Halloween cookies. I had picked up these stamps at a little boutique in St. Armands Circle when we went to Florida last September. I had high hopes of making some cute cookies last year, but we were busy moving and it just never happened. So I have been waiting a whole year to try these babies out. The set came with 4 cookie stamps; a pumpkin, spiderweb, a cat and bats.

We made 2 batches of dough. This is the "anilla" (as Dax calls it) that we made into the pumpkins and the spiderwebs.

We did the cats and bats out of the chocolate.

It was really fun for my helpers. Just roll the dough into a ball and then press it flat with the stamp.

The chocolate tasted better, but the designs showed up better on the lighter dough.

The official cookie tester thought both were delicious:)
