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 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 !
