How to Halloween Treats

 

Just one week to Halloween so I thought I would squeeze these last minute easy

Halloween treats in here for you . Treats, and makeup.

Halloween Stained glass cookie recipe ( 6 dozen )

O.K. you will need the following :

¾ cup granulated sugar

½ cup unsalted butter , softened

¼ cup of vegetable shortening

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 eggs

2 ¾ cups all purpose flour

1 tsp. salt

You will also need an assortment of hard candies of different colors

In a medium bowl, combine sugar, butter, shortening, vanilla, and eggs.

Stir in flour, baking powder, and salt, cover and chill for 1 hour in refrigerator.

Preheat oven to 375 F ( 190 C ) . line cookie sheet with aluminum foil.

On a floured board , roll dough out 1/8 inch ( 3mm ) thick.

Cut into Halloween Shapes with different cookie cutters, and arrange

On cookie sheet. Decorate ( eyes, mouth, etc. ) with hard candies, whole

Or in pieces.

Bake 7 to 9 minutes, until edges of cookies are golden and candies melt. Let cookies cool completely on cookie sheet.

* To crush candies, place between 2 pieces of wax paper and tap lightly. Because they melt easily, it is best to keep pieces as large as possible.

For a cool looking extra get a huge bowl and add grapes to a fake blood mixture,

And have kids to place their hands in the bowl to guess what it is , this feels like eyeballs. We did this at my daughters Halloween party and really freaked out some kids.

P.s. have a safe and Fun Halloween Evening !
