I normally don’t think of Oatmeal Raisin Cookies for Halloween but this recipe uses chocolate chips and raisins to decorate wholesome cookies to look like festive Jack O’ Lanterns. These would be great fun with little ones.
Nothing says Halloween like candy corn and these pinwheel cookies from Clairellyn at The Simple, Sweet Life embrace the hues of Halloween in clever fashion. Candy Corn Swirl Cookies are all treat and no trick, with a simple recipe and stunning results that are guaranteed to please.
Getting tired of all the pumpkin recipes yet? Maybe you should try Amy Bertrand’s Carrot Cake Sandwich Cookies then. It’s really just portable carrot cake, which is downright handy! Surprisingly, the cream-cheese filling isn’t the proverbial icing on the cake — it’s what you roll them in: pecans, coconut or a mixture!
Not only will these Skillet Cookies be the biggest cookies you’ll ever make, they’ll be the gooiest. The increased surface area and deep-dish factor create wedges of thick, soft, chewy goodness that practically require a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Huffington Post has assembled an assortment of 11 cast-iron crowd-pleasers, including Chocolate Chip, Snickerdoodle, Peanut Butter and Mexican Chocolate.
These Rosemary-Orange Shortbread Cookies couldn’t be easier to prepare and their sophisticated flavor would dress up any cookie tray. I like the fact that you roll the dough between sheets of parchment paper, making preparation nearly fuss-free.
I love cookies and I love all things Christmas. So I was delighted to find Stéphanie Kilgast’s blog and online shop, PetitPlat, where she creates adorable earrings and dollhouse miniatures that look like Christmas cookies. Her attention to detail is remarkable. Prices range from £14 for candy cane post earrings to £36 for elaborate gingerbread houses for a dollhouse. She also makes brooches, necklaces, rings and hair clips. While my interest is in her cookie art, I also was impressed with her other treats, including doughnuts, cupcakes, breads, fruits and other “edibles”.
