Halloween Cookies

I seriously love to bake cookies. The problem is that I eat the dough and then the cookies after they are baked and gain about 5 pounds from one batch! It is bad, I realize, but I have very little self control when it comes to homemade cookie dough. My kids have inherited my love for cookie dough, so they want to bake with me. It is so much fun. After I get over the fact that they are going to make a mess and spill the flour, I really enjoy baking with the boys. I normally give them each their own spoon and a few scoops of the dough. We baked some sugar cookies and then invited Aunt Courtney over to help decorate them. Halloween is such a blast. I love fall and the fall colors that go along with Halloween:purple, black, orange. We had a good time decorating the cookies and we delivered them to a few friends for family home evening the next night.

Here are two shots of our creations!
Happy Halloween!
