Halloween Sugar Cookies

Full disclosure: this is a recycled recipe. Halloween Sugar Cookies are the exact same as Holiday Sugar Cookies. But good recipes are worth repeating.

Servings: 24 cookies

2 eggs
2 Tbsp. milk

1 cup soft shortening
½ cup granulated sugar
½ cup brown sugar
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
2-¾ cups all-purpose flour
½ tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt

Make dough
Cream shortening and sugars. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well. Stir in remaining ingredients. Mix thoroughly with hands.

Form cookies
Press and mold dough into long, smooth roll 2-½-inch in diameter. Wrap roll in wax paper and chill in refrigerator until stiff, approximately 4 hours.

Bake cookies
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees-F. With a sharp, thin knife, slice into circles 1/4-inch to 1/2-inch thick. Alternatively, roll dough on lightly floured surface and cut into shapes with cookie cutters. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer cookies to cooling racks and let cool completely.

Decorate as desired and serve.

    I LOVE the Halloween-shaped cookies! And the sanding sugar really pretties them up. Ziggy would have to “GRRRRRR” bite all the black cats until they were dead!
