295. halloween cookies.

 

We had alot of halloween festivities this weekend, so we made some halloween cookies to make the weekend even more fun. We used the roll out sugar cookie recipe from Vegan cookies invade your cookie jar, then iced them with this icing recipe I found on pinterest. The icing really did stay hard, which made it easy to transport these cookies. I had to add a little extra soymilk though, b/c it was pretty dry once I added the suggested amount. I also have to work on my icing skills. There’s a reason why you only see the ghost cookies…it was by far the prettiest one.

for the glaze, mix together:

  • 1/4 cups confectioners’ sugar, sifted
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon milk (i probably ended up using 3-4 tspn soy milk)
  • Food coloring (optional)

237. sprinkle cookies.

I needed to bake cookies to bring to work for a little celebration we are having, so I made these sprinkle cookies. I had three kinds in mind, and let milo pick – and of course he picked these….They were really easy to make and came together in no time. They make pretty excellent ice cream sandwiches! They kind of taste like the refrigerated kind that you slice and bake…but they are homeade!
