Halloween Sugar Cookies

Introduction: Halloween Sugar Cookies

About: Hi! I am Klinong, that is how my loving family calls me, except my brother, he calls me Krinyol, as I have silly curly hair :) I love Instructables for forever now, especially for the contests ha-ha!, but ...

Sugar cookies are great for parties and/or for goodie bags!

Step 1: Ingredients and Method

Cookies:

2 c flour

1/4 tsp BSoda

1/4 tsp salt

3/4 c butter, room temperature

2/3 c sugar

1 egg

2 tsp vanilla essence/extract

Preheat oven 350 F

Combine flour, soda and salt, set aside

Beat butter and sugar and gradually add in sugar, until fluffy, on high speed for 4 minutes

Add in egg and 1 tsp of the vanilla essence

Reduce to low and add in flour gradually, until combined

Form into a disk, wrap in plastic and chill it for half hour

On floured surface, roll out dough and cut using Halloween themed cookie cutters and place on ungreased cookie sheet

Bake for 9-11 mins, cool for 5 mins on pan then remove from pans onto cooling rack.

Royal Icing (you can use this one if not Alton Brown's royal icing - I love Alton Brown's but for the cookies on this instructables, I use this following recipe)

1 bag of icing sugar (16 oz)

3 tbsp meringue powder

7 tbsp warm water

food colors

At low speed, beat icing sugar, meringue powder and water until glossy.

Beat in remaining vanilla essence

Divide among bowls and tin as desired and start decorating your cookies!

NOTE: you can always add warm water 1 tbsp at a time to make the royal icing more runny if you think it's too thick.
