Things You'll Need

  • 1 package (16 to 18 oz.) refrigerated sugar cookie dough
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 can (16 oz.) vanilla ready-to-spread frosting
  • Assorted food color
  • Decorations, such as: ROLO® Chewy Caramels in Milk Chocolate, HERSHEY'S KISSES Brand Milk Chocolates, small (1-1/2 inch) YORK Peppermint Patties, KIT KAT Crisp Wafers in Chocolate, REESE'S PIECES Candies, TWIZZLERS PULL-N-PEEL Candy

How to Make

  • 1. Heat oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease.
  • 2. Combine cookie dough and flour until mixture holds together. Roll dough into 1/4-inch thick rectangle on lightly floured work surface..
  • 3. Draw two (7- to 8- inch-high) Halloween shapes (pumpkin, ghost, witch, etc.) on cardboard; cut out. Cover them with clear plastic wrap. Place over dough; trace around cardboard pattern with knife. Cut completely through dough. Place shapes on prepared cookie sheet. Using a straw, make one (1/4-inch-wide) hole in each side of "mask" where ear would be.
  • 4. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until lightly browned. (If necessary, recut holes on both sides of mask while cookie is still hot.) Cool slightly; carefully remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.
  • 5. Divide frosting and tint with food color; frost cookies. Using your imagination, decorate cookies with assorted candies. Separate PULL-N-PEEL candy into strands; tie 1 strand into each hole to resemble strings on a mask. Makes 2 cookies.
