Halloween Sugar Cookies

A big shout out to my sister and bhavaji on their 20th anniversary! Can't believe it's been so many years. Their's being the first marriage in our house, I have so many fond memories of their special day. Not only special day, but all the moments leading up to this day after their engagement. May you both have many many many more years of happiness and love together! Happy Anniversary you two. XO

I made these simple sugar cookies for Halloween.. Kids wanted to bake cookies, so I let them do what they wanted. From mixing the dough to cutting and decorating. They loved the whole process. And wanted more cookies than their fair share. I actually don't mind them eating these cookies, since I know exactly what all went in there, rather than the ones from store.

Prep Time: 15 min | Baking Time : 10 to 15 min per batch | Makes : About 24

Bats, ghost, broom, spider-web, pine tree and pumpkins


Multi-grain Flour/ All Purpose flour - 1 1/2 Cups
Salt - 1/4 tsp.
Baking Soda - 1/2 tsp.
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Unsalted butter - 1/2 cup
Egg - 1
Vanilla extract - 1 tsp.
Lemon Extract - 1 tsp.
Sprinkles - As needed.

Method of preparation:

~ Preheat the oven to 350 deg Fahrenheit.
~ Mix and sieve salt and baking soda with flour. 
~ In another bigger bowl beat butter and sugar until smooth.
~ Add egg and vanilla, lemon extracts. 
~ Cover the dough in a plastic wrap and put it in the refrigerator for half an hour. 
~ Take and form it into log and cut them into discs. Sprinkle the top.
~ Alternatively, roll them out and cut into desired shapes using cookie cutters. We had some fun Halloween cookie cutters. And kids had blast choosing what they wanted. 
~ Then bake them for 10 to 14 minutes.
