Happy Halloween!!!

Halloween is by far one of my favorite holidays. As a kid there was nothing better then getting free candy, and as an adult I enjoy the opportunity to dress up and act like a kid again. For the past 3 years my fiance, Jordan and I have thrown a Halloween party for all of our friends. Jordan is in charge of carving the pumpkins, while I have been in charge of creating a large spread of food. I have thoroughly enjoyed trying to make regular party food into something spooky.

One of the big hits from last year's party were cookies made to look like Witch's fingers, here's a quick how-to so you can enjoy them yourselves this Halloween:

Step 1: Either make or purchase a basic sugar cookie or peanut butter cookie dough. I cheated and used store bought peanut butter cookie dough.

Step 2: On a lightly floured surface and with floured hands, roll the dough into very thin ropes, about 2 inches long.

Step 3: Using a small knife, score 3 thin lines in the centre of the ropes, to resemble knuckles.

Step 4: Place on a greased, or parchment lined baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees until golden brown, about 8 minutes.

Step 5: Once cooled, use royal icing (see recipe below), dyed your favorite colour and pipe on creepy nails

Step 6: ENJOY!!!!

Quick Royal Icing
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 cups icing sugar
  • A squeeze of lemon juice

1. Combine all ingredients in a medium sized mixing bowl and whisk together until combined.

2. You can adjust the icing to your desired consistency using water

3. Mix in a few drops of your favorite colour food colouring or keep it white.
4. Store in an airtight container.
