My latest recipe article has been very well received. The last recipe I wrote was ‘my classic chocolate chip cookie recipe‘ and today I wanted to write something more seasonal. Since it’s autumn and almost that time of the year to start decorating for Halloween, I’m baking my Halloween Cut Out Cookies recipe! These Halloween cutout cookies are great for Halloween parties or to give away to trick-or-treaters.
–90 g unsalted butter
–100 g granulated sugar
–200 g wheat flour
–1 pinch of salt
–1 tsp cinnamon
Step 1: Firstly, let’s do the liquid ingredients! Start with melting the butter. When the butter is completly melted let it cool of a bit. Then combine the melted butter with the sugar in a bowl. Beat in the eggs into the mixture of sugar and butter as well.
Step 2: For the second step we need the liquid mixture and we can start adding in the dry ingredients. Just add all of the flour as well as the teaspoon of cinnamon and the pinch of salt into the liquid mixture. After combining all of the ingredients knead it in a ball and wrap the dough in saran wrap. Let your little ball of cookie dough rest in the refrigerator for 10 minutes.
Step 3: The final step, is to cut the cookies from the dough. Start by preheating the oven to 200 °C. Dust your work surface and the rolling pin with a little flour. Since I don’t have a completely flat kitchen counter I use a cutting board and dusted it with flour. Roll the dough out to ½ cm thick and start cutting out your Halloween figures with the cookie cutters. This batch of cookie dough was enough for me to precisely fill one whole tray with cookies. Lastly, bake the Halloween cookies in the oven for about 10 minutes until golden brown and let them also cool for 10 minutes.
Now you’ve got yourself a delicious batch of Halloween cut out cookies! You could add any type of frosting you want to these cookies or keep them as is. These are now ready to be eaten at your spooky Halloween party or by the adorable trick-or-treaters coming by your house! I hope you liked my Halloween Cut Out Cookies recipe!
