Finally posting Halloween cookie pictures!

I told you it would take awhile for DH to remember to download these pix for me. I made these for our coworkers and family for Halloween week. They are pumpkin and ghost cut-outs (a coworker names the ghots "boo bites"--cute!) and maple shortbread. Hope these show up OK (the ghosts have little faces on them, picture might be too small for the detail--sorry)!

Thanks for the complements! :oops:

I use royal icing and this time decorated using squeeze bottles. For the detailed work, like the ghosts' eyes and mouths, I used a #1 tip in a parchment bag. I've developed my own technique that works for me, but it's similar to the tutorial on www.kitchengifts.com. That's a great baking site if you've never been on it before, too.

Sometimes, if I'm just doing a solid color or solid "base color" on a cookie (say a red heart), I'll just dip the face of the cookie in a glaze, let it dry, and then add detail with piped royal icing. Since there were several colors that needed to be on the face of the pumpkin, I used the squeeze bottles. Same with the mini-ghosts since they were tough to hold onto, being so small.

I just bought a squeeze bottle that allows you to attach a coupler and decorating tip. I can't wait to try that out. I also found a cookie cutter in the shape of a Christmas tree light. I'll make a tray of those in different colors and "connect" them with black licuorice to look like a string of lights. :D

Those look amazing!!!!!! You must have a very steady hand. I am woefully inept in the decorating department.

Maple shortbread sounds yummy. Do you have a recipe you could share?

Thanks~
